Validation is a way of working and communicating with older people who have dementia and it is particularly focused on people who are in later stages of dementia. It makes use of sensory methods of communication such as touch, song and movement to build relationships and connect with the interests people had and the activities they engaged in at earlier times in their lives. University College Cork (UCC) is delighted to host a Validation workshop with Mrs. Naomi Feil, founder of Validation, on 30 May 2014 from 9.00am – 17.30 pm in Room G01 at the Brookfield Health Sciences Complex.
