Dementia Insights: The Validation Method for Dementia Care.
We are proud to share our recent article in Practical Neurology: Dementia Insights: The Validation Method for Dementia Care. This article explores how physicians can and need to use elements of Validation in their daily work. Case studies are described giving the reader a concrete understanding of how these skills can benefit physicians and make their work more meaningful.
Validation Method Insights
In this video, Naomi Feil, founder of the Validation Method, a pioneering approach to empathically entering the world of elderly persons who are living with dementia, is interviewed about her life and work by neurologist, Daniel C. Potts, founder and President of Cognitive Dynamics Foundation.
Celebrate Naomi Feil’s Legacy
Over the past 40 years, VTI has created and delivered constantly evolving training programs, published four books in 12 languages, created films and built an international network of partnerships. Validation, once a maverick concept, is comfortably in-synch with contemporary thinking as Feil’s concepts have inspired a generation of ‘person-centered’ eldercare.
Our mission is to nurture respect, dignity and well-being in the lives of older adults living with Alzheimer’s Disease and related dementias (ADRD) and their caregivers by advancing education in the Validation method.
VTI’s vision for the future is that every caregiver and older adult experiencing age-related, cognitive decline will feel the joy and love of meaningful communication.
VTI has a network of 8,214 Validation certified workers, 860 group leaders, 449 teachers and 17 master teachers, around the globe. There are 24 Authorized Validation Organizations (AVOs) in 14 countries across Europe, Asia and North America.
