About Us

For over 25 years, The Eden Alternative® has been on a mission to disrupt institutional approaches to care and eliminate loneliness, helplessness, and boredom. The landscape of aging services is forever changed by pandemic life. Person-directed care and the tools that put it into action are needed now more than ever to uphold and protect the well-being of elders and the people who support them as their care partners.

Through innovative education and consultation, we teach person-directed care. When organizations take the skills, tools, and resources we deliver and transform them into committed action over time, they get results.
Implementing organizations:
• Have employees who love their jobs and stay in those jobs
• Create highly engaged, self-directed teams with a strong sense of ownership
• Learn that happier employees’ equal happier elders and happier family members
• Discover that individualized care makes daily life easier, not harder
• Find that person-directed practices result in higher clinical outcomes
• See improved quality of life and overall well-being
