Montessori-Based Activities for Persons with Dementia, Volume 2 is the follow-up companion to Myers Reserach Institute’s first volume. This manual represents the culmination of years of effort, involving a large number of people. In preparing Volume 2, the authors incorporated reader feedback into the development of new activities programming for individuals with dementia and other cognitve disorders (such as adults with developmental disabilities).
The manual contains all new Montessori-Based activities, including, activities for individuals and groups, intergenerational activities, activities for men, subject based activities and activities for restorative care/nursing rehabilitation practices. This manual provides step-by-step instructions and guidance for creating and conducting each activity. Also provided are tips for extending activities, making them more or less difficult and addressing challenges that may occur.
