Montessori Ageing Services (MASSA) For Dementia care
Montessori Environments support the person and are aimed at also supporting memory loss (when it is present) and addressing the many and diverse issues that can arise for people living with dementia. The innovative techniques used to create Montessori Environments are intended to engage people (both those with dementia and those without) in life and living. This is achieved by providing an environment that makes it possible for each person to find information, meaning and purpose in their day, whilst supporting losses and circumventing their deficits.
