A Unique ApproachThe four phases of Validation.
Validation has proven to be a powerful way of communicating and engaging with older adults whose memory is impaired. Krissy teaches the 4 remarkable techniques & how to apply them in different situations.
Our mother has been attending That Place You Know for some time now. A friend told us about this amazing care center, and from day 1 we have never looked back. Krissy provides a nurturing family atmosphere in which my Mom feels totally comfortable, and is thriving. It takes a very special person to welcome people into their home on a daily basis and to be a caregiver at that! She fully engages our Mom with activities including cooking, baking, art, and music. Knowing that our beloved Mama is safe, happy and well cared for is a blessing that no words can adequately describe, and we are so very grateful. ~Iris M.
Krissy Wuerdeman brings care to people living with dementia to another level. I have known Krissy on a personal and professional level for two years now, and seen first-hand how she changes the lives of those around her suffering from dementia and similar memory care deficits. Krissy sheds new light for the caregivers, families, and other professionals trying to understand this debilitating and often times confusing disease process. Her understanding of dementia and pioneering skills lead the way for the future of caring for those who suffer. Krissy’s techniques using validation method REALLY WORK! I have witnessed this new and revolutionary technique in action on Krissy’s mother as well as several other people she has volunteered to help along her journey. She is a true blessing, passionate, and above all selfless. A true inspiration to caregivers everywhere, and a light of hope for those we care about most. Original testimonial link. ~ M. Clauss, LPN
