Dr. Cameron Camp, founder of the Center for Applied Research in Dementia, is a noted expert and innovator of utilizing Montessori principles for adults based on the methods of Maria Montessori. Montessori Inspired Lifestyle® Approach for Dementia Care emphasizes a value-focused approach using the strengths and abilities available to each individual. With a focus on offering choice and meaningful social roles, the goal is to create a community that enables persons with dementia to remain connected with life. Some examples include incorporating work tables to engage residents with familiar objects and spark memories. Residents are also given many social roles to provide them with a renewed sense of purpose and dignified freedom.
The method has been implemented with great success in Europe and Australia, engaging persons at all levels of dementia. The Commons on Marice’s management company, The Goodman Group, is a senior living and health care management company that implements Montessori based dementia programming at a national level with Dr. Camp’s ongoing sustainability model.
