In a culture that typically views aging as a period of decline, the Eden Alternative philosophy asserts that no matter how old we are or what challenges we live with, life is about continuing to grow. Through a collaborative partnership, Elders and Care Partners work to enhance well-being by eliminating the three plagues of loneliness, helplessness and boredom. Our Shalom Park Family are all active participants in the balance of giving and receiving.
