We are more than excited to invite you to an extraordinary event! Come and join us in our celebration of Naomi Feil's 90th Birthday!

On the 22nd of July, a special interview with Naomi will premiere, followed by a Facebook live event to celebrate a mom, a pioneer, a wife, and the incredible woman who is the ‘godmother’ of person-centered care.

As a 4-year-old refugee from Nazi Germany, Naomi Feil grew up in the Montefiore Home for the Aged in Cleveland Ohio, where her father was the administrator and her mother, the head of the Social Service Department. The older adults were her direct neighbors and friends. This gave Naomi unique empathy and insight into the world of disoriented elders which became the foundation stones for the Validation method.
In 1982, with the help of a few supporters, she created the Validation Training Institute (VTI) as a vehicle for spreading information on the method, as well as training practitioners and trainers.

Over the past 40 years, VTI has created and delivered constantly evolving training programs, published four books in 12 languages, created films, and built an international network of partnerships. Validation, once a maverick concept, is comfortably in-synch with contemporary thinking as Feil’s concepts have inspired a generation of ‘person-centered’ eldercare.

To celebrate her amazing journey we have created a special birthday fundraiser - Y 90 $ 90, Donate $90 to celebrate Naomi’s 90th birthday. Continue her legacy of inspiring generations of person-centered elder care.

And what is a birthday party without a gift!

To say thank you to all of you for donating, we want to give you a special limited edition e-book with some of the most powerful words by Naomi along with stunning artwork created by Amber ten Brink. All the gifts will be sent to your email, so please when you donate add your email address.
