Abstract/Notes: Abstract Aim. Montessori activities were implemented in nursing care of older adults in the home environment with the aim of creating meaningful, inclusive, and failure-free daily activities that improve their quality of life. Material and methods. In-depth comparative case studies with exploratory methods were used based on structured interviews and observation of four purposely selected older adults with and without dementia in the home environment. The data was collected using the Montessori methodology, which was divided into five phases. Results. Diff erent types of activities and roles were developed based on the individual’s abilities and interests. The participants felt more independent and self-confident in the performance of planned activities and satisfied that they are busy during the day and engaged in activities that contribute to their better mobility and health. Conclusions. Implemented activities can facilitate the inclusion of older adults in the daily routine of family life, increase the quality of life and the possibility of self-care in the home environment.

Abstract/Notes: Montessori-based Activity Programming (MAP) was adapted for Veterans Affairs (VA) Community Living Centers (CLCs) and aims to increase independence and meaningful engagement in residents with cognitive impairment. The Montessori model prioritizes offering choice, knowing and harnessing a resident’s abilities, and enabling them to carry out purposeful roles and activities. Any perceived deficit in cognitive functioning is “circumvented” by preparing the environment to support maximum independence. The implementation of MAP-VA in VA Western NY CLC involved 3 lodges, 52 staff, 16 champions, and 65 CLC residents. Standardized implementation measures demonstrated improvements over six months in five domains assessing development of a resident-directed community. Hypothesized outcomes included improved national percentile quality improvement (QI) rankings related to psychological symptoms and medications (e.g., depressive symptoms and use of antipsychotic/antianxiety medications) and physical functioning (e.g., less falls and ability to move independently). Scores six months prior to the implementation of MAP-VA (April, 2018 to September, 2018) were compared with scores during six months of implementation post training (November, 2018 to March, 2019). Compared to pre-intervention QI measures related to psychological symptoms, a clinically meaningful trajectory of symptom decrease was observed with rankings during implementation (e.g., depressive symptoms, amount of antipsychotic medications). Likewise, compared to pre-intervention QI rankings regarding physical functioning, post-training rankings showed a trajectory of improvement (e.g., help with ADLs, ability to move independently). Implementation of the MAP-VA intervention demonstrates preliminary evidence for improvement in QI measures related to psychological symptoms and physical functioning. Implications for QI efforts in VA CLCs will be presented.

Abstract/Notes: [...]Montessori prescribed it. A prepared adult allows children to practice essential executive functions and self-regulation skills like working memory, mental flexibility, and self-control. According to the Harvard University Center on the Developing Child, opportunities to develop these skills have lifelong benefits to the child. According to a study in the Journal cf Child and Family Studies (2012), factors like income and parent education levels did not have a significant impact on children's self-regulation skills.
