NaomiNaomi Feil the Founder of  the Validation Program shares and celebrates her 30 year journey shifting our dementia care culture with us on Alzheimer’s Speaks.

Naomi Feil, is one the true leaders in dementia care, working hard to shift our dementia care culture way before most even knew there was a need to do so.  This was a fun and interesting interview with one of my idols in dementia care.  I have been honored to meet Naomi on several occasions during the past few years and she is one of the most gracious and kind people I have ever met.  Below is a bit more about Naomi, if you are not familiar with her work.

Naomi Feil, M.S.W., A.C.S.W., is the developer of Validation. She was born in Munich in 1932, and grew up in the Montefiore Home for the Aged in Cleveland Ohio, where her father was the administrator and her mother, the head of the Social Service Department. After graduating with a Masters degree in Social Work from Columbia University in New York, she began working with the elderly. Between 1963 and 1980 Mrs. Feil developed Validation as a response to her dissatisfaction with traditional methods of working with the severely disoriented old-old people who were her clients. In 1982 she published her first book, Validation: The Feil Method, which was revised in 1992. Her second book, The Validation Breakthrough, was published in 1993, and updated and revised in 2002. Feil and her husband have made many films and videos about aging and Validation. Feil is the Executive Director of the Validation Training Institute and a popular speaker in North America and Europe. Since 1989 she has toured Europe 3 times a year offering workshops in Validation to participants in Germany, the Netherlands, Scandinavia, France, Belgium, Italy, Great Britain, and Austria. Her books have been translated into French, Dutch, German, Italian, Finnish, Danish, Swedish, Spanish and Japanese.
