The Montessori Method at Youville

Youville Residence has embraced a Montessori approach in its caregiving efforts thanks to the co-location of a Montessori school on its campus. With the Montessori method, dementia caregiving aims to stimulate sensory perception in people with dementia to help them rediscover and engage in the world around them. Children from the onsite Montessori school participate in monthly activities with the Youville residents and members of the adult day program, such as making ice cream and crafts.
