Culture change in aged residential and community care

The Eden Alternative is a culture change model of care which enhances and harmonises other care models in residential aged care and community care settings.

The aim is to eliminate the three plagues of loneliness, helplessness and boredom across the continuum of care, including for people living with dementia.

Our key focus is to transform aged care and community care environments from a medical care model to a human habitat model that focuses upon the client or resident directing their care. This model of resident directed or client directed care is like no other and is universally applicable.

The Eden Alternative Domains of Wellbeing add a new dimension to the term ‘person directed care’. Through our accredited training, workshops, Eden Registry membership and consulting services, we aim to empower organisations and services (including staff, residents, families, visitors and volunteers) to provide opportunities to create home and enable people to live a life with meaning and purpose, no matter their frailty.

The foundation of true culture change is achieved through the Eden Alternative.
