Who is it for?

Managers, owners, staff and anyone involved in or interested in the cultural change beyond person centred care.

How will it benefit my organisation and me as an individual?

The Eden Alternative TM is part of a worldwide culture change movement that seeks to ensure that person centred care replaces institutional and medical models of care. It is a philosophy based around ten principles and is a different approach to the way we care for our elderly in long-term situations and in their own homes. Through companionship, being able to give and receive care and the re-introduction of spontaneity into our homes we eradicate or manage the loneliness, helplessness and boredom that cause the bulk of suffering amongst our elderly. Training to introduce the Eden Alternative philosophy gives participants the opportunity to experience the mindset change and the paradigm shift required to achieve this culture change and to ensure its sustainability.

Communities that have adopted the Eden Alternative philosophy have benefited two-fold; increased well-being for their residents and clients, and increased job satisfaction for staff.
