Providence Health Care’s residential care homes have adopted the Eden Alternative as the guiding philosophy of care. The Eden philosophy is based on 10 principles that provide guidance to staff about how we can help elders continue living meaningful lives when they become too frail to live independently. The philosophy helps us keep a daily focus on reducing the feelings of loneliness, helplessness and boredom we know are often experienced by elders living in care homes. For more information visit our Eden AlternativeEden Philosophy page or consult any staff member wearing an Eden pin.

Residential Care for Me
Residential Care for Me is an innovation and improvement project happening at all five Providence Health Care residential care sites. Led by the site and program leaders of residential care at PHC and supported by the PHC’s Research & Design team, Residential Care for Me strives to understand what happens in residential care by piecing together the individual experiences of people who live, work and visit our sites.
