The Validation Method in Memory Support
We select only the most compassionate caregivers to work in our memory support program. Then, we provide extensive training on our specialized approach to care. All Connections coworkers are trained on the Validation Method. This communication technique helps residents and their caregivers build trusting relationships. Through empathetic listening, Validation trained caregivers help residents express their emotions. This approach is proven effective in reducing anxiety, a common symptom of dementia.
