An Amazing Conversation with Naomi Feil – A Pioneer in Healthcare

Listen Live or Listen at Your Convenience Tuesday – Jan 3rd, 2023 – 2pm EST, 1pm CST, 12pm MST, 11am PST & 7pm London GMT, 9pm South Africa SAST, and on the 4th at 6am in Australia AEDT

Today, Eilon Caspi will be cohosting with Lori La Bey as they interview the one and only Naomi Feil. Joining us will also be Naomi’s daughter Vicki de Klerk.

A little background on Naomi Feil:

Naomi Feil is the developer of the Validation Method. She was born in 1932 in Munich Germany, graduated from Columbia University with a Masters degree in Social Work. Naomi developed the Validation method between 1963 and 1980, through practice, as a response to her dissatisfaction with traditional methods of working with the severely disoriented old. The older population was her client base.

In 1982, she published her first book, Validation: The Feil Method. Her second book, The Validation Breakthrough, was first published in 1993. Naomi and her husband Ed, have made many films and videos about aging and Validation. Since the mid-1970s, Naomi has done over 1000 workshops in the United States and Canada, plus almost 1000 workshops in Europe and Asia.

She can easily be called, the God-mother of ‘person-centered’ care.

Vicki de Klerk-Rubin is Naomi’s daughter and since 2014, she has taken on the role of Executive Director of the Validation Training Institute. She is a Dutch-trained, Registered Nurse, holds an MBA from Fordham University and is a certified Validation Master.

Today Lori La Bey will talk with Jane Dwinell who is an RN, Unitarian Universalist minister, and an author who lives in Vermont. She and her husband, Sky Yardley, chronicled his years living with dementia in their blog, and then in a book, Alzheimer’s Canyon.

Join the conversation as we learn about Jane and Sky’s journey. 

Feel free to call in and ask you questions or make a comment at (323) 870-4602.

More About the Authors:

Sky Yardley & Jane Dwinell were together for 36 years. They raised two children, for many years had a small farm, and retired in their fifties to travel and do volunteer work. They both had successful careers—Sky as a family mediator, and Jane as an RN, freelance writer, and Unitarian Universalist minister. In 1992, Jane authored Birth Stories: Mystery, Power and Creation. As an avocation together they designed and built seven houses and renovated two others.

Sky was diagnosed with “probable early stage Alzheimer’s disease” in the summer of 2016. He had been showing signs of memory loss since 2012, most significantly since 2015. He was 66 when he was diagnosed. Jane was 62. Sky died in 2021, after chronicling with Jane his five-year decline from this fatal disease, the sixth-leading cause of death in the US.
