The Salvation Army Senior Citizens Services has started to adopt Montessori’s theory and concept in dementia care in recent years. It is a person-centred approach which emphasises on the needs, interests, ability and past experiences of elderly with dementia and designs tailor-made training programmes for them. Research results indicate that the ‘Group-based Montessori Method for Dementia (MMD) Programme’ effectively enables elderly participants to demonstrate their strengths, affirm themselves and enjoy a more active and meaningful life.
