The Validation Breakthrough  The Validation Breakthrough

Simple Techniques For Communicating by Naomi Feil

Publisher's Description:

Internationally recognized authority Naomi Feil describes Validation, a remarkable program for reducing caregiver burnout and improving the lives of people with dementia. Feil shows caregivers how they can avoid conflict and stress by validating feelings rather than focusing on confusion. Fifteen compelling case studies illustrate the simple but effective techniques that are appropriate at each stage of dementia. Used in thousands of nursing facilities around the world, these techniques can restore dignity and reduce anguish by helping people with dementia communicate with those around them.

Sensitive and insightful, The Validation Breakthrough is an essential resource for families, friends, neighbors, home health aides, doctors, nurses, social workers, and long-term care staff living or working with people with dementia.
