Montessori for Seniors

Excellent idea, I hope this idea catches on and expands for those with Lewy Body Dementia and their special needs. Specifically their inability to read and difficulty with spacial sense.

Across the Divide

In my earlier post today about the similarities between people with dementia and very young children, I briefly mentioned Montessori methods as being good for both age groups. The following video shows how one retirement home in Toronto uses Montessori techniques as part of its dementia care programming.

When my son was two, he was given the same clothes pin exercise while attending a Montessori. It helped with his fine motor skills

The L’Chaim Retirement Home is on Sheppard Ave. west of Bathurst St. I’m not familiar with it, but might have to check it out for my mother.
