An Eden Alternative Perspective
This 1-day learning experience, available both as a do-it-yourself training kit and as an in-person training, explores the art of building meaningful relationships as the fundamental building block of care that puts the person living with dementia first. Participants gain a powerful appreciation for the role of sensitivity, awareness, and presence in identifying the needs of those living with dementia in long-term care communities. By reframing our perspective of what’s possible, we create a culture of care focused on the continued growth and development of people living with dementia and design a life worth living for all!
