have come together to offer a 1-day seminar on
Montessori Inspired Lifestyle®: Montessori Based Dementia Programming®
December 17, 2019
8:30 a.m. – 4 p.m.
In-person in Austin, Texas, or via webinar!
HHSC is bringing a Montessori course provided by Dr. Cameron Camp. He is founder of Center for Applied Research in Dementia (CARD) and the Certified Montessori Dementia Care Professional (CMDCP) certification provided by the International Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners (ICCDP).
This course is for everyone, especially direct care professionals, certified nursing assistants, attendants, social workers, nurses, administrators and activity professionals.
Dr. Camp’s course goes deep into not only providing person-centered practices but letting each person function at their highest optimum level. The Montessori approach supports all people as adults who have much more capability than often given credit.
How many times have you witnessed people in a craft or cooking program and the staff or others are doing everything versus letting the attendees complete the task at their level? How many times have you seen ball toss as the only activity? How many times have you witnessed support professionals and family members feeding people who could feed themselves, if provided finger foods or adaptive devices?
