Montessori is a model of care that supports independence, choice, high self esteem and meaningful engagement. It has a focus on what people are still able to do, giving them a reason to get out of bed every day. It does not matter what age we are, we all need to feel needed and useful. Traditional aged care may create excess disability and can rob people of their independence and dignity. Montessori enables people to be the best they can be by supporting memory loss and independence.
Attendees will learn about the application of Montessori principles to aged care.
