We here at Woodland Terrace at the Oaks have adopted Validation Therapy as a means to engage our memory care residents. You may say, what is “Validation?” To validate someone is to say that his or her feelings are genuine, powerful and deserve to be heard, understood and accepted. To validate someone is to show that his or her thoughts, opinions and memories are important and deserve attention and respect. To validate a disoriented older person is to do this with empathy, employing specific learned principles and techniques, assisting that person to relieve pent up emotions, express inner needs and resolve unfinished life tasks. It is our goal in our secured memory care unit provide an atmosphere that is enjoyable, relaxing, comfortable, and safe. We provide assistance with all activities of daily living, activities all day long and three meals day.
