This workshop was designed by Gail Elliot of DementiAbility Enterprises Inc. and has been offered to over 2,000 professionals.


Participants in the workshop will learn about the basic principles of Montessori Programming for dementia, along with practical hands-on opportunities to apply the techniques and consider how this philosophy of care can be adopted for their clients and programs. The first day of the program focuses on background information and an introduction to Montessori Methods for dementia and the second day focuses on putting the concepts into practice for specific clients, activities and environments.

Who Benefits

1. The person with dementia

Individuals who are challenged by cognitive loss will benefit when their providers of care learn about the evidence-based strategies that are discussed in our workshops. "DementiAbility Methods: The Montessori Way™" focuses on knowing the person, making observations and then creating a plan that is aimed at addressing the needs of each person with dementia, according to interests, skills and abilities.

The focus is on person-centred care in a prepared environment. The overall focus is adding quality to life.

2. The person providing support

The person providing dementia support, and care, benefits from these workshops. Workshop participants are provided with current knowledge and, during the workshop, they are provided with opportunities to test their understanding of the materials using case examples and role-plays. They will learn about innovative, evidenced-based strategies that are aimed at enhancing function and quality of life in the persons with dementia, with the objective of enhancing the lives of both the person with dementia and the providers of support and care.
