Webinar Overview

The Montessori Method is based on the core values of respect, dignity, and equality. This enables strong relationships among persons to evolve based on trust. These values are translated into practice through a set of principles such as offering choice, focusing on strengths rather than deficits, etc. These principles are based on rehabilitation techniques and emphasizes viewing dementia as a disability rather than a disease. Applying these principles enables persons with dementia to recover function, learn new skills, and have meaningful roles within a community.

Engaging persons with dementia in meaningful activity, creating a community of such persons who care for each other and are connected to the outside world. This approach is the most effective way of reducing responsive behaviors, and results in substantial reduction in the use of psychotropic medications, hypnotics, etc. In essence, it is a way of living which we call the Montessori Inspired Lifestyle®. Though this method initially was developed as an educational system for children, this approach is beneficial for all persons.

When applied as a management approach to care partners, it provides a positive work environment, increased autonomy, and high levels of employee engagement. These in turn result in reduced staff turnover, increased longevity, and better communication. Thus, the Montessori Inspired Lifestyle® provides a person-centered care approach through all levels of care systems.
