The best soil for joyful moments is always found in places where relationships are deep, rich, and intensely meaningful.
Learn more on Eden Alternative

Welcome to Eden Alternative Mauritius, the Journey to Elder Centred Communities​

The Eden Alternative is a philosophy that seeks to change the culture of today’s old age homes, long term care facilities, and other residential care settings from sterile medical institutions to human habitats – environments where residents want to live and carers enjoy working.

Eden Alternative communities encourage the continuation of residents’ personal growth rather than their decline and value what’s important to the person – like individual routines, pets, plants and other unique aspects that makes life worth living.

Through education, consultation, and outreach, The Eden Alternative offers person-directed principles and practices that support organisations in addressing the unique needs of individuals, fight loneliness, helplessness and boredom and enable well-being, longer and healthier lives – reducing the need for medical interventions and drug therapies.

“Improving the lives of older people and their carers by transforming the communities in which they live and work.”
