Relate, Motivate, Appreciate - A Montessori Resource
People with dementia are often confronted with what they can no longer do or with the mistakes that they make. Montessori principles are designed to focus on what they can still do.
Relate, Motivate, Appreciate explores the elements of a meaningful interaction with someone living with dementia and describes the principles of engagement under this approach. Ideas for activities are grouped under 5 themes: watching, listening, touching, smelling and tasting.These activities are a starting point that will hopefully serve as inspiration for you to think of activities that the person living with dementia will enjoy.
Order your copy of Relate, Motivate, Appreciate through the order form below and recieve a bonus DVD and workbook to help visually guide you through the elements of the Montessori approach.
