The Eden Alternative

Why We Are a Member Community of The Eden Alternative

As a member community of The Eden Alternative, Clermont Park knows wholeheartedly that no matter our age or abilities, life is about continuing to grow. Building on this new paradigm, The Eden Alternative approach affirms that care is not a one-way street, but rather a collaborative partnership. The Eden Alternative offers training and programming aimed at building partnerships between older adults and care partners that eliminates the three plagues of aging – helplessness, loneliness and boredom for older adults.
