In October 2019, the Eden tribes came together to celebrate the growth of the Eden Alternative in Australia, New Zealand and now South East Asia. This was the first Eden conference held in the Southern Hemisphere since 2006. We were delighted that Dr Bill Thomas, founder of the Eden Alternative, could come downunder and share in the joy and growth of thie person directed model of care, across so many sectors.
Additionally, Person directed model of care requires the empowerment of staff, elders and visitors. In a Covid19 context, the past few months have seen many Eden Members rise to the challenge to continue to grow their care partner teams and to innovate and pivot the relationships amongst everyone.
Our international Eden tribe is proving that putting the person first is both challenging and exhilarating. Communities are thriving, staff are providing selfless service and to date, overall satisfaction has soared. We know there is more work to do. We know that we are all learning from each other. Our latest newsletters shares the highlights of the Eden conference as well as celebrating the growth of our Eden Registry members, Eden Associates and others.
