"Learning about The Eden Alternative was transformative for me. Loneliness and boredom, when expressed by my mother, were things I thought were within her control - she could fix them by doing this or that. And everything I did as a 'caregiver', although done with love, helped perpetuate her feelings of helplessness.

I had heard the term 'care partner' used, but it wasn’t until taking an Eden Alternative training that I truly understood the importance of being a partner in care and how vital it is to creating a collaborative care partner team. As an Eden Educator, I have the honor of inspiring others to partner with those they support in a way that truly makes a difference.”
