Expert in applied research for dementia, Dr. Cameron Camp, is the founder of the Montessori method for older adults. We are excited to be the first senior living community in the Midwest to work with Dr. Camp and offer a resident-centered approach to memory care. The Montessori method emphasizes a value-focused approach using the strengths and abilities available to each individual. With a focus on offering choice and meaningful social roles, the goal is to create a community that enables persons with dementia to remain connected with life. Residents are also given many social roles to provide them with a renewed sense of purpose and dignified freedom.
