Montessori Based Programming
The Montessori method is being used to successfully engage Alzheimer’s disease patients, and is the heart of our programming at Wesley Willows. There is evidence that the Montessori approach can reduce anxiety for people with dementia by providing them with engaging activities that they find rewarding.
