Using The Montessori Philosophy For Older Adults Living With Dementia: An Opportunity For Intergenerational Learning
This is a conversation with Lisa Armao the founder of the Montessori Intergenerational Learning Communities (MILC) in Denver, Colorado, that provides Montessori early childhood education for children ages 0-5 and Montessori programming to support aging adults living with dementia.
