Program Description

“Validation Training Institute’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.”

Validation training program consists of classes, videos, books, and more.  

Validation techniques can help older adults with dementia to express what they wish to express whether it is verbal or non-verbal communication.

Validation practitioners focus on person-centered eldercare, should be caring, non-judgmental and open to the feelings that are expressed. The idea is that when feelings which have been suppressed for a long period are able to be expressed, people are able to increase communication and may be less likely to withdraw into further stages of disorientation.

Validation Training Institute has a network of Validation certified workers, leaders, and teachers across Europe, Asia and North America.
