The Eden Alternative® Philosophy
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. Building on this new paradigm, affirms that care is not a one-way street, but rather a collaborative partnership.
Eden Gardens is formally accredited by Accreditation Canada. This rigorous and comprehensive, independent review of all aspects of care, administration and governance standards.

One of Eden Gardens’ distinct differences is that care and service are person-centered. We believe that it takes everyone involved with the resident’s care to promote their well-being from the families to Eden Gardens care partners and volunteers, even our pets to help support residents to manage their own lives to the best of their abilities.
Accreditation = Commitment to Quality
In May of 2019, Eden Gardens was accredited with Exemplary Standing from Accreditation Canada. Our organization has exceeded the requirements of the accreditation program and was awarded the highest standard. Read a copy of Eden Gardens Accreditation May 2019 Summary Report.
Eden Gardens is formally accredited by Accreditation Canada. This rigorous and comprehensive, independent review of all aspects of care, administration and governance is an ongoing investment we make to continually improve our high standards.
Accreditation Canada is a not-for-profit, independent organization, teamed up with Health Standards Organization (HSO.) They provide national and international health care organizations with an external, peer review process to assess and improve the services they provide to their patients and clients based on standards of excellence.
Accreditation Canada’s programs and guidance have helped organizations promote quality health care for over 55 years.
Accreditation involves all members of the organization, from our board of directors, to frontline staff, as well as members of the community including residents and families, and our community partners. It allows us to understand how to make better use of our resources, increase efficiency, enhance quality and safety, and reduce risk.
