Montessori Moments in Time Program

Memory Care, what does this mean? We think it means; to enrich the lives of our community, residents, families and employees through extraordinary experiences. The Montessori Moments in Time Program is designed to capture our residents' special moments at any given time, validate them, and help them live fully in those moments. This is accomplished through the following five directional paths: Life Engagement, Dining Experience, Team Promise, Family Connections and Health & Wellness. We have based our program on Naomi Feil's Validation Theory: People who are in the late stages of life might have unresolved issues that drive behaviors and emotions. Reciprocated communication of respect which communicates that others' opinions are acknowledged, respected and heard and that they are being treated with genuine respect as legitimate expression of their feelings rather than marginalized or dismissed. This is our Memory Care.

Randa Handler’s Classroom PDF Books

Are you a school teacher looking for a mainstream way to talk diversity and tolerance? Free PDF files of Randa Handler's books are available for your classroom. Teachers have shared online how they've found her books helpful, through reviews and 'lesson plans'. Even though picture books, their high word count (about 2500) targets early readers. Handler is an international journalist, publicist and publisher. In 2003, her publishing efforts launched an educational series of children’s books with Miss America 2000, Claire’s Adventures, that are still being used as ‘lesson plans’ by elementary school teachers. She has released five children’s books to instill in kids an appreciation of differences. Cubbie Blue and His Dog Dot (Book One), and What’s Up with Mike? (Book Two), a fantastical series populated with multi-ethnic characters. The Thanksgiving Dinner Platter, a fun book that explains why Thanksgiving is more than Turkey Day and introduces a similar celebration in Japan; If I Were King, is a fun animal tale about a feisty zebra trying to find her turf. One of her most popular children’s books, Boy Who Spoke to God, attempts to open dialogue about different religions with early readers using a fairy tale setting and multicultural characters.
