Dementia Insights: Avoiding Burnout in Dementia Care
Burnout occurs when mental, emotional, and physical exhaustion take over. It can affect individuals and systems and is often evident amongst health providers and caretakers. Validation is a method for connecting and communicating with older adults who have cognitive decline.
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.
