WISER Professionals – An Approach to Dementia Support

This intensive two-day workshop is designed for professionals working in the care sector, whether it be home care, community care, residential or hospital setting.

Participants will develop knowledge and skills in:

  • Applying the Principles of Montessori into their service
  • Developing knowledge and understanding of how memory works
  • Creating supportive and prepared environments
  • Activities and roles the Montessori way

The WISER Approach encourages staff members to empower people living with dementia to be as independent as possible, for as long as possible.
