Kim Alpert is a Diversional Therapist and Montessori Accredited Trainer with

seven years’ experience dealing with dementia specific clients. Kim provides

unique therapies that addresses each client’s specific needs in the comfort

of their home and provides loved ones with the necessary emotional support

as dementia has an effect on the entire family.

Necessary tools are provided to empower clients to remain independent

for longer while maintaining their dignity. Kim personally trains all involved

with her clients on how to deal with complex behavioural patterns. Kim is

also involved in training and assisting nursing homes in providing cutting edge

ideas for their diversional therapy programs which are both therapeutic as

well as enjoyable to enhance the quality of their residents’ life.

Holistic approaches that Kim employs includes: cognitive stimulation,

gentle exercise, creative therapy, sensory therapy, cultural/spiritual wellbeing

and socialisation to ensure a happier and healthier lifestyle while having fun

through meaningful activity.

“Persons affected with dementia are no different to you or me; they have

the same needs to feel loved and wanted and to be treated with dignity and

respect,” says Kim.

“It’s not how long we live but rather the quality of how we live. Enhancing

quality of life and nurturing the soul is paramount.”

Diversional therapy helps empower clients into feeling once again in

control, and agitation and anxieties are reduced and therefore provide a

positive outcome for the individual and their loved ones.
