Are you new to the Eden Alternative? Check out this introductory overview of the Eden philosophy and model in action from an independent caregiving expert.
Earlier this week the radio program “Transition Aging Parents” with Dale Carter broadcast an episode focused on the Eden Alternative in an interview with caregiving coach Holly Whiteside, author of the Caregiver’s Compass. Dale and Holly discuss how the Eden Alternative transforms nursing homes from cold institutions into warm communities where both elders and their care partners can thrive and grow.
“The Eden Alternative is seeking to remake the experience of aging around the world.”
Eden’s vision: To eliminate loneliness, helplessness, and boredom.
Eden’s mission: Improving the lives of the Elder and their Care Partners by transforming the communities where they live and work.
