The Eden Alternative
Switzer has recently started to implement the Eden Alternative, a philosophy which supports the view that no matter how old we are or with what challenges we live, living is about continuing to develop spiritually and mentally. We believe that care is not one-way, but rather a collaborative partnership. To this end staff and residents are encouraged to join together in activities to alleviate loneliness, helplessness and boredom.
The Mission of the Eden Alternative is “To provide health care in an atmosphere where love and life can spontaneously combust”.
