Dementia is a broad term that is used to define an array of symptoms associated with a decline in thought processes, problem solving and speech or memory impairment. Dementia is the by-product of damaged brain cells by diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease or a stroke. Dementia is not an inevitable part of aging, however it is common in the elderly.

The Montessori Methods for Dementia are based on the theory and practices of the Italian physician Dr. Maria Montessori. These methods have been applied to patients with dementia by pioneering psychologists and care workers to provide a novel and effective treatment for the symptoms of dementia. While it is still a relatively new approach to Dementia treatment, there is evidence that the Montessori Method can reduce anxiety for people with dementia by providing them with mentally engaging activities that they find rewarding.
