Tren is a resident at an aged care facility. He was no longer able to feed himself and required full staff assistance. As a result of implementing a rehabilitative approach to care and using fine motor skill activities based on Montessori methods, Tren has re-learned the skills required to feed himself again.
This is one example of a rehabilitative approach to care that focuses on individual strengths, abilities, needs and interests. A contemporary approach to dementia care which is gaining momentum throughout the world.
