A Cluster-Randomized Crossover Trial of Montessori Activities Delivered by Family Carers to Nursing Home Residents with Behavioral and Psychological Symptoms of Dementia [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
One-on-one structured Montessori-based activities conducted with people with dementia can improve agitation and enhance engagement. These activities may however not always be implemented by nursing home staff. Family members may present an untapped resource for enabling these activities. This study aimed to evaluate the impact of the Montessori activities implemented by family members on visitation experiences with people who have dementia. This study strengthens the evidence base for the use of the Montessori programs in increasing well-being in nursing home residents. The findings also provide evidence that family members are an additional valuable resource in implementing structured activities such as the Montessori program with residents.
