Validation Therapy Shows Respect for Life [VIDEO]

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to live without a sense of connection to the outside world? Many elderly ones with cognitive impairments and dementia live with a longing for closeness to others.

Gladys Wilson, an 87-year-old woman diagnosed with non-verbal Alzheimer’s, is one who wants to connect to the world around her. Naomi Feil helps her to do this by using validation therapy which employs touch and music to reach inside her world so that she can communicate.

Validation therapy is a truly beautiful way to show honor and respect for the feelings of those who are unable to express them. So next time you touch another person or sing a song that others recognize, remember you are impacting that person for a lifetime. A truly awe-inspiring thought indeed.
