Eden in Oz & NZ Ltd is now offering training courses for carers and staff involved in Aged Care, Community and Dementia Care in Singapore!
In early October 2017, we held the inaugural three day Certified Eden Associate course, which is the foundation course for culture change. With four countries represented (Malaysia, India, Singapore and Australia), this group of change agents were able to learn and understand that to provide a person directed care model, first requires personal transformation. Each person was able to take away with them a tool kit of ideas, template and the knowledge that they can make effective change in their care home, retirement village, community centre or ashram.
One of the most critical first steps is to ask the Elder or Older person what they want their care to look like. "Nothing about me, without me" is a phrase that is resonating throughout the Senior care market, especially for those living with a dementia diagnosis. It is a phrase that is absolutely relevant for anyone, who is reliant upon others for support in their daily living.
Worldwide, we are able to demonstrate progressive and sustainable change through the implementation of the Eden Alternative philosophy of person directed care.
We are very excited that the Eden Alternative has provided an opportunity for care partners in other Countries to be the change and to make a difference in not only their own lives, but those whom they serve.
Our next Open session is planned for 2018. Can't wait that long? Then consider an in-home training course for your team.
The fear to change is education...and the Eden Alternative provides you a framework for culture change that goes beyond planned programs and events. It is a whole of organisation approach that ensures greater depth of understanding and knowledge of a future where older people are supported, enabled and revered.
As Ghandi says, "Be the change you wish to see in others".
