Sarasota, FL (PRWEB) August 16, 2017
Pines of Sarasota Education & Training Institute and international trainer Dr. Cameron Camp join forces to offer a series of Montessori-inspired dementia lifestyle training webinars.
Cameron J. Camp, Ph.D. created the “Montessori Inspired Lifestyle ®”, an innovative approach to activities programming that combines rehabilitation principles and educational techniques using the physical and cognitive abilities available to individuals.
This method has been proven to successfully engage persons with dementia and related disorders across all levels of dementia, as well as serving as a means of implementing person-centered approaches to care.
The first webinar “Creating Engagement & Purpose through Resident Committees” will take place on August 24, 2017, from 2-4pm EST. During this session, targeted at anyone wanting to offer true person-centered care, attendees will learn how to empower their residents to make collective decisions on matters that affect their everyday lives.
JoAnn Westbrook, Director of Education, explains: “We are excited to partner with Dr. Camp for this webinar series. His engagement programs offer tips and techniques that provide quality of life like no other, and this convenient webinar format will enable us to bring this critical information to caregivers and senior care professionals worldwide.”
