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.

Song: Halfway to Heaven

“Halfway to Heaven” is a song written for Joyce Ann Barczyk by her husband John Barczyk. There are a lot of songs about Alzheimer’s disease, but John felt there was something missing in all of them – hope. John’s goal was to frame the long hard struggle as a journey with many identifiable steps along the way, and help sufferers and their families find comfort in each successive crisis. When the song was shared with Kaitlin Ridgeway, a board-certified music therapist with Hospice of Michigan, she sang it to Joyce and then to other patients. Kaitlin commented, “I have played that song for other patients and families and every time they find such an emotional connection to the words.”

Kaitlin recorded “Halfway to Heaven” on her phone and sent it to John. John added an introduction he recorded on his phone and some images. That is what you will hear and see in the video above.

Joyce was a wonderful wife to John for over 50 years, a mother to four great kids, and an RN for whom no sacrifice was too great. She had a ready smile that never dimmed and faced her diagnosis with courage and determination. Joyce will be remembered for the comfort and joy she lovingly displayed to others. As a nurse, a friend, a mom, and a grandmother, she was always willing to offer help and support.

Joyce Ann Barczyk, of Lakeville, Michigan, passed peacefully on July 14, 2022 after a long, hard battle with early onset Alzheimer disease.
