The Eden AlternativeTM affirms that care is not a one-way street, but rather a collaborative partnership. All caregivers and care receivers are described as “care partners,” each an active participant in the balance of giving and receiving. Together, care partner teams strive to enhance well-being by eliminating the Three Plagues of loneliness, helplessness, and boredom. Focused on changing the culture of care since the early 1990’s, this approach to person-directed care initially came to life in nursing homes and has since expanded its reach to all care settings.
The Regina Lutheran Care Home has been a registered home with Eden Alternative since 2010. Broadway Terrace is the first assisted living complex to be registered with the Eden Alternative in Western Canada.
