And because it works.
Your organization needs to adapt and innovate to deliver the cutting-edge care that individuals with Alzheimer’s and dementia need – the kind of care they deserve, and that their families have a right to expect.

Evidence-Based Solutions and Proven Results

Our research has shown many benefits to introducing a Montessori approach in the care of individuals with dementia. In a study of 16 Assisted Living Residences and Skilled Nursing Facilities that received Montessori for dementia training (Memory in Rhythm), there was a significant decrease in medications, wandering, agitation, and employee turnover within one year. An increase was also found for weight gain, sleeping, census, eating, and ADLs.
