Bridge Haven included on the Eden Registry
26 February Bridge Haven was accredited as an Eden Alternative registered home. The Eden Alternative is a philosophy of care based on the core belief that ageing should be a continued stage of development and growth, rather than a period of decline.
The evaluation went well with staff demonstrating how they are working to the principles of Eden Alternative through their care delivery. The assessor commented on what she was impressed with and spoke with staff, residents and visitors during her visit to fully assess everyone’s views on embedding the Eden Philosophy within the home. Staff were positive about starting their Eden journey and were fully aware of the need to put residents at the centre of their day to day decisions about their care. Residents also gave positive feedback, as did all the visitors.
Bridge Haven is now the seventh Avante Care & Support care home to be accredited by the Eden Alternative.
Studies show that implementation of The Eden Alternative is a powerful tool for improving quality of life and quality of care for those living in care homes. Also, homes that have adopted Eden as an organisational-wide philosophy have found that there is improved staff satisfaction and retention and significant decreases in use of medication.
Well done to the team at Bridge Haven Care Home.
