Eden Alternative (But, Doesn't Have To Be) - Dr. Bill Thomas



---This short talk could be about long-term care, anywhere!


---SYMBIOTIC – simplified...is when the staff depends on the resident/patient as much as the resident/patient depends on the staff. To go a step further...the patient needs the staff to lead as normal (for him) a life as possible. The opposite is true for the staff. His job is to help the patient achieve all of the above. The better the rapport, the better the necessary harmony that leads to improvement.




---The concern of the Nursing Home is for the patient to reach the highest and truest of himself. The patient should thrive + prosper in accord with his abilities, talents and intelligence. The job + goal of the staff is to make this happen (as much as possible) for the patient. Going from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset will accomplish this. Be Well.
