The Validation Breakthrough by Naomi Feil

This extraordinary book shows caregivers how they can interact successfully with people with dementia by avoiding reality orientation and instead focusing on underlying emotional needs. Based on the principles of Erik Erikson and on subsequent decades of work with disoriented older adults, the simple techniques of Validation are easy to learn, take just minutes a day, and can be used by both family and professional caregivers. Let the powerful techniques of internationally recognized expert Naomi Feil help you reach confused older adults by establishing respectful, loving relationships that break the silence of withdrawal. Discover new ways to meet the challenges of caring for people with dementia! Touching, amusing, and informative, The Validation Breakthrough shows caregivers how to dramatically enhance the quality of their relationships with people in the early to middle stages of dementing illnesses. Helpful, practical strategies will show you how to stop patronizing and arguing with people with dementia and start building trust by stepping into their world. Eighteen poignant case studies illustrate how Validation is used to handle wandering, agitation, and other challenging behaviors--and reduce the sense of anger and frustration in caregivers and clients alike. Essential reading for long-term care staff, gerontologists, social workers, and family members, The Validation Breakthrough is transforming the way caregivers communicate with people with dementia


Creating Moments of Joy by Jolene Brackey

Jolene Brackey has a vision. A vision that will soon look beyond the challenges of Alzheimer's disease and focus more of our energy on creating moments of joy. When a person has short-term memory loss, his life is made up of moments. But if you think about it, our memory is made up of moments, too. We are not able to create a perfectly wonderful day with someone who has dementia, but it is absolutely attainable to create a perfectly wonderful moment; a moment that puts a smile on their face, a twinkle in their eye, or triggers a memory. Five minutes later, they won't remember what you did or said, but the feeling you left them with will linger.
