At The National Center for Montessori and Aging, we will show you how to shift your view of dementia care and create an environment where people with dementia flourish — making things much easier for both them and YOU. Montessori for Aging and Dementia, an innovative approach to care, enables individuals to care for themselves, others, and their community — bringing purpose and meaning to elders’ lives, and increasing staff satisfaction significantly.
