Validation Techniques for Dementia Care

Validation Techniques for Dementia Care

The family caregiver's guide to Validation! This practical resource will show family caregivers how to use the effective Validation method to improve communication and interactions with individuals with Alzheimer's disease or other dementias. Developed by internationally recognized expert Naomi Feil, M.S.W., the Validation method is a way to communicate with disoriented older adults by validating their expressed feelings rather than factual reality. This empathetic approach helps caregivers breaks through the common silence and pain of withdrawal and interact with greater compassion and respect.Validation for Family Caregivers includes a thorough discussion of Alzheimer's disease in straight-forward language accessible to all readers. The philosophy and practices behind the Validation method and its success are also addressed. Verbal and non-verbal techniques, including use of open questioning, rephrasing, mirroring, and consistent eye contact, are explained with detailed examples. Plus, the book includes realistic case studies that illustrate Validation in practice and its benefits for a variety of families.
