Lynda Erasmus, General Manager, Methodist Homes
“It is my pleasure to give you feedback on the difference I have seen in our villages after our involvement with the Eden Alternative.
Our aim at Methodist Homes over the past three years has been to have every staff member attend the three or one day training course and every contractor attend our one day sessions.
We have had Residents attend some of the courses and they have been so impressed that they have gone ahead and done presentations to Rotary and U3A groups that they are part of.
To visit a village and see from gardeners to maintenance to carers stepping up and building relationships with residents and watching resident involvement in daily activities in the home, in the garden and in our care centres has been a highlight for me.
Knowing that each one of ‘us’ has a role to play in making our villages and care centres a better place for not just the Residents but for us all. There is no one role more important than the other, has given our staff and contractors a new perspective on Team and how important their positions are.
Thank you for this opportunity and I trust that as Eden grows we will have lives changed and relationships strengthened that will change our villages and care centres forever!”
