The Eden Alternative® Philosophy

The Eden Alternative® approach to caregiving is more than medical care. It is about improving the well-being of individuals and their care partners. At Holly Nursing Care Center, we share the Eden Alternative® values of innovation, integrity, community, empowerment, and passion.

The Ten Principles of the Eden Alternative®

  • Principle One: Loneliness, helplessness, and boredom are painful and destructive to our health and well-being.
  • Principle Two: A caring, inclusive, and vibrant community enables all of us, regardless of age or ability, to experience well-being.
  • Principle Three: We thrive when we have easy access to the companionship we desire. This is the antidote to loneliness.
  • Principle Four: We thrive when we have purpose and the opportunity to give, as well as receive. This is the antidote to helplessness.
  • Principle Five: We thrive when we have variety, spontaneity, and unexpected happenings in our lives. This is the antidote to boredom.
  • Principle Six: Meaningless activity corrodes the human spirit. Meaning is unique to each of us and is essential to health and well-being.
  • Principle Seven: We are more than our medical diagnoses. Medical treatment should support and empower us to experience a life worth living.
  • Principle Eight: Decision-making must involve those most impacted by the decision. Empowerment activates choice, autonomy, and influence.
  • Principle Nine: Building a collaborative and resilient culture is a never-ending process. We need to keep learning, developing, and adapting.
  • Principle Ten: Wise leadership is the key to meaningful and lasting change. For it, there can be no substitute.
