Eden Alternative Training

The Eden Alternative ® is not a program, but rather a philosophy that seeks to address what Dr. Bill Thomas calls the three plagues of nursing homes: loneliness, helplessness and boredom.  Read more here.

Cheryl George and Suellen Beatty are the Eden regional coordinators for western Canada, and present the following Eden Alternative ® Training sessions:
-Introduction to the Eden Alternative ®, a one-day course taught at your facility
-Eden Associate Training, a three-day course offered at your facility or at the Sherbrooke Community Centre
-Untie the Spirit, a two-day follow-up to Associate Training, offered at your facility or at the Sherbrooke Community Centre
