 In Past Events

The Eden Associate Training is Life Changing!

The Eden Alternative® is a principle-centered approach to culture change, and the Certified Eden Associate Training is the most widely practiced, comprehensive approach to person-centered/person-directed care. More than 50,000 people have gone through this training world-wide, with more than 1,300 Certified Eden Associates in GA.

Certified Eden Associate Training (CEAT) is an in-depth, interactive, educational exploration of what is required to successfully implement and sustain person-centered practices. It conveys the WHAT, WHY, and HOW of person-centered/person-directed care and the culture change that is required for initiating and maintaining it over time.

This online, interactive training offers practical tools that are the heart and soul of person-centered care planning as required by CMS (The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services).

Communities with Certified Eden Associates on staff have:

  • Drastically reduced turnover and employees who are far more satisfied with their jobs;
  • Increased satisfaction and well-being from Elders and their care partners;
  • A better sense of community, team empowerment, and sustainability; and
  • Improved financial performance.
