Eden Alternative

In a culture that historically views aging as a period of decline, the Eden Alternative philosophy basis is that no matter how old we are or what challenges we live with, life is about continuing to grow.  Building on this new thinking, it means that care is not a one-way street, but rather a collaborative partnership. All caregivers and care receivers are described as “care partners,” each an active participant in the balance of giving and receiving.  Together, care partner teams strive to enhance well-being by eliminating the three plagues of loneliness, helplessness, and boredom.
