|Validation method classes benefit professional caregivers of people with memory loss|
St. Benedict’s Senior Community’s passion is to impact the quality of living for those with dementia. We are proud to shed light on this devastating disease by providing education and support to health care providers, community members and direct care providers who are caring for people with dementia. Validation is a practical way of working that helps reduce stress, enhance dignity and increase happiness. Most of all, participants gain an appreciation of what their loved one or patient is experiencing and feeling. When one can “step into the shoes” of another human being and “see through their eyes,” one can step into the world of disoriented people and understand the meaning of their sometimes challenging behavior. The four-session spring course begins April 16. For details or to register, visit centracare.com. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
