Hi Fiona, I am also very interested in the Eden Philosophy Therapy. It is a philosophy that acknowledges that long term care organizations can and should be transformed into true ‘human habitats’; places where our elders would spend their days ‘living’ instead of waiting to die. I am glad to say that in the place I work for we are all well entrenched in this concept. Our residents can choose the time to bathe and the time to dine among other things which differ from the programmatic approach used in many organizations. We also have a wonderful, friendly garden with wide cement paths for wheelchairs, a gazebo with tables and chairs, a large table for craft, a BBQ, elevated herb and vegetable patches, chicken pen and fruit trees.
