Training and Education

Education is at the core of everything we do. Recognising that different people learn in different ways, we offer a variety of educational experiences designed to help individuals transform the culture of care and ageing in their organisations and the broader community.

The Eden Alternative, although based on a simple philosophy, is a comprehensive approach that has to be applied and lived by all people involved to ensure that the quality of life of residents and employees is improved.

For this reason, we suggest that employees on all levels, as well as families, must be informed, educated and encouraged to actively engage in their role in this culture-change process.

Successful implementation of the Eden Alternative requires a commitment from owners, boards of management, managers and all staff to support those within their organisation who are genuinely able to effect change when providing care services to elders or residents, including relatives and the wider community. Commitment requires deep understanding and insight.

How to Introduce the Eden Alternative to your Organisation

Eden Alternative:  Open Hearts, Open Minds

Open the hearts of everyone who lives and works within your organisation with this compelling introduction to the power of the Eden Alternative’s ten Principles. This learning experience is a meaningful way to introduce the way of life in a person-centred care culture, especially to board members and management or when welcoming new staff.  Once hearts are opened, minds will follow.

  • Gain a fundamental understanding of the Eden Alternative
  • Be inspired to join the culture-change journey
  • Learn why change is important to the well-being of the whole care partner team

Who should do this training?

  1. Board members and management staff before starting your Eden journey.
  2. It can be a routine orientation training done for new residents, family members and staff members to explain the Eden journey to them.

Presented: On request throughout the year.
