Rise Up, Register, and Join Us in Atlanta
Today, we officially launch Early Bird Registration for our 9th Eden Alternative International Conference scheduled for May 3-5, 2018. I love the “Rise Up” theme we’ve chosen for the conference because it is such a perfect fit for what The Eden Alternative is all about. It speaks to taking action, and let’s face it, changing the culture of aging requires focused, committed action by all of us.
Our willingness to take action is what sets us apart from the many who are content with the status quo, which we see as unacceptable. Without taking action, our enemies… loneliness, helplessness, and boredom… will always win out. Yet, only you can choose what action to take, and this, too, parallels the Eden Alternative Philosophy. Yes, we have the Ten Principles and 7 Domains of Well-Being to guide you, but ultimately you decide how to use them and put them into practice. You can make them your own.
The same is true with our “Rise Up” theme. Make it your own and decide how you want to bring it to life, just as you do with The Eden Alternative. I encourage you to take action now and do whatever it takes to find the time and the financial resources to come to Atlanta, so we can all “Rise Up” together, whatever that means to each of us, and be renewed and refreshed in our quest to create well-being for Elders and all of their care partners everywhere.
