Watch as Alzheimer’s Patient Lights Up!
Naomi Feil, creator of the validation therapy technique, shares a breakthrough moment of communication with Gladys Wilson. Wilson was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2000 and is virtually non-verbal. The technique is founded upon the principle of communicating with the patient even if they don’t appear to be able to respond or speak. By doing this, the connection with the patient strengthens. As we can see in this video, the results of trust and communication can be quite surprising. The 87-year-old patient amazingly begins to respond to the touch, eye contact, and the speech of Naomi. Watch and share this inspiring musical moment!
