Elevate Eldercare

Mar 6, 2024

Naomi Feil, who originally developed the Validation method of supporting and communicating with people living with dementia, died this past December 24 at the age of 91.

This week, we’re celebrating Naomi’s life with her daughter – and fellow champion for the dignity of people living with dementia – Vicki de Klerk-Rubin, executive director of the Validation Training Institute.

Join us for a fascinating conversation about Naomi’s life, including her early-life escape from Nazi Germany, her formative experiences with elders, and the spread of the Validation method around the world.

Seeing the human behind the diagnosis of dementia was a far more radical idea when Naomi first planted the seeds of Validation, and the entire eldercare community owes her a great debt. We hope you’ll tune in to learn more about her life and then spread the timeless message of Validation.
