Montessori approach

A two-day workshop to talk about the Montessori approach for dementia and ageing will take place in London on 20 and 21 November.  It will be led by Anne Kelly, a nurse and expert in the care of older people, who has been a major proponent of the approach in her native Australia. “Dementia and disabilities can make people feel worthless and miserable, and home routines can so easily rob them of their independence and dignity,” Kelly said. “The Montessori approach can dramatically improve their wellbeing and enable them to do things for themselves rather than having things done for them. It empowers not only patients but carers and families too.”  To find out more, go to
