Montessori: The Aged Care Holy Grail
Sub-titled ‘Changing the world of Older People including those living with dementia’, this presentation shows the positive outcomes associated with implementing a Montessori model. Based on residents’ strengths, needs and abilities, Montessori enables, enhances and enriches lives, giving everybody a reason to get out of bed every day.
