An interactive webinar with Vicki de Klerk-Rubin, the Executive Director of the Validation Training Institute (VTI). The Validation method motivates older adults with cognitive decline to communicate more, relieve stress, and enhance dignity and happiness in their final stage of life. The COVID-19 pandemic and the quarantine have been a trigger for many older adults living with cognitive decline and a reason why so many residents in nursing homes and memory care communities are experiencing anger, sadness and withdrawal. Along with the increased isolation they are living with, many older adults have also experienced a trauma or crisis earlier in their lives and unresolved feelings from those events are being brought to the surface during this current global event.
What you will take away from this webinar:
- Know at least 5 specific reasons that might be the reason for angry outbursts, consistent crying or withdrawal
- Practice 3 specific techniques that lead to empathy
- Use 3 Validation techniques for engaging older adults with cognitive decline
1 free NAB, NCCAP, NCCDP and/or NCTRC CEU for those who attend the live event
