At Eden Care Communities we refer to Elders, Families, Staff, Volunteers, and Community stakeholders as "Care Partners". We strive to combat the three plagues of loneliness, helplessness, and boredom. Together as Care Partners we can combat helplessness by not only giving care, but being open to receiving care.
We encourage every care giver to accept care from others and be a care partner. It can be as simple as returning a kind smile to a stranger or taking the time to say "you are very welcome" when you are thanked for the care you provide.
