12:00 PM Adapting Montessori Methods into Existing Facility Design to Support People Living with Dementia

Montessori environments provide renewed purpose for people living with dementia by allowing them to engage in meaningful activities and roles. Montessori methods were used in the environmental design of Blue Care’s Wirunya facility to significantly reduce disruptive behaviours and drive a respectable culture. Learn how to:

  • Develop a partnership with dementia care consultants and establish a shared vision for staff and residents
  • Focus on the person’s capabilities by valuing and validating what people living with memory loss can contribute to
  • Put the resident at the centre of care to improve their journey during transition from residential aged care to acute care environments
