Montessori for Aging and Dementia Two-Day Workshop in Ireland

Montessori for Aging and Dementia

Two-Day Workshop in Ireland

26th and 27th March 2018

Saint Nicholas Montessori College Ireland (SNMCI) and Association of AMI Teachers of Ireland (AATI) are delighted to announce a two-day workshop on Montessori for Aging and Dementia.

The workshop is led by Jennifer Brush, who is an award-winning Dementia Educator, author and consultant.  It will be delivered in Saint Nicholas Montessori College Ireland’s premises in Dún Laoghaire.

Ian McKenna, Director of SNMCI stated that:

“This is a wonderful opportunity to present Montessori beyond its perceived context of the class room.  The goal of this program is to support people living with dementia by creating a prepared environment, filled with cues and memory supports, that enables individuals to care for themselves, others, and their community.  The Montessori approach enhances quality of life for people living with dementia by creating an environment in which they can thrive.”

He continued:

“I am delighted that SNMCI is working with AATI on this initiative – the fact that we have been able to secure the services of Jennifer, who is one of the globally acknowledged experts in this area, will ensure that all workshop participants will be equipped to bring Montessori in Ireland to a new community.”
