Well-Being: The Core of Daily Life

Creating and supporting well-being is the path to a life worth living. Semester 3 of the Eden Alternative Academy will apply the Eden Alternative Domains of Well-Being™ as the framework for creating a meaningful daily life. During the course of 8 weeks, participants will review and discuss each of the domains, which include identity, connectedness, autonomy, security, growth, meaning and joy. What makes the Domains of Well-being so powerful is how they root us in our own experience of what it means to be human. They personalize our understanding of what true care is by calling on us to reflect on what we each hold dear. The semester will focus on assessing, integrating and measuring the domains in the lives of all care partners (Elders, employees, families, volunteers, etc.). True community exists where everyone’s well-being is nurtured and supported. Join us to learn how to strengthen well-being for all.

This semester course consists of eight, 1-hour webinar events. New and seasoned care partners from a variety of roles, including Elders, family members and volunteers, are welcome to join us to network, share and learn.
