Use these failure-free activities—created using Montessori education principles—to enhance the skills needed by adults with dementia to perform activities of daily living.

Volume 1 features 41 step-by-step activities that support skills for self-feeding, dressing, preparing simple meals, participating in recreational activities, and more.

Volume 2 promotes increased opportunities for socialization, including intergenerational programming, group activities, ideas especially for men, and sensory stimulation exercises.
