Creative activities can support people with dementia, leading to moments of reconnection and joy. This book shows how the Montessori method - with its arts-based, person-centred and positive focus - can help caregivers connect to people with dementia. Drawing on 20 years of experience, Tom and Karen Brenner explain the philosophy of the Montessori method, provide clearly-written steps to follow when applying it, and share a wealth of case studies and stories from their personal work using this method with people with dementia. This includes reading circles, art programmes, drum circles, poetry, and video diaries. Supported by research of the importance of creativity and the arts in dementia care, it is made clear throughout how every aspect of the Montessori method can help those with dementia to rediscover the world around them, maximising the opportunities they have to reconnect with their peers, family, friends, and support staff.

The World Alzheimer's Report 2014 states: "By 2050, 135 million people around the world will live with dementia". That same report states: "Given this epidemic scale and with no known cure, it is crucial that we look at what we can do manage the quality of life of those living with it and their relatives". This book, which is based on a series of lectures delivered by the authors at the University of York, UK in 2011/2012, aims to do just that. The book shows how "work", i.e meaningful activity can improve the quality of life of, not just the persons living with dementia, but their families and friends as well. This book presents Montessori-Based Activities for people living with dementia. It explains: - What Montessori-Based Activities are: - Why Montessori-Based Activities are uniquely suited to helping people living with dementia. The book is filled with practical activities which can be carried out daily by people living with dementia. It has now been proven that Montessori-Based Activities bring about a more positive mind-set in people living with dementia. This in turn results in less "responsive behaviours", less anxiety and less depression. For this reason, Montessori-Based Activity for people living with dementia is presently being seen as a "game-changer" in the field of dementia care.
