Rochester Presbyterian Home’s three residences are committed to the philosophy of the Eden Alternative.

Milestone 2 on the Eden Alternative pathway

We have reaffirmed our commitment to improving quality of care and quality of life for the people who live and work in our homes by mastering the second Milestone of “The Path to Mastery™: The Art of Creating a Caring Community.” This powerful tool developed by The Eden Alternative®, guides organizations through the process of transforming their culture to assure person-directed care practices. This pathway persistently reminds us that we must dismiss all remnants of the medical-institutional model of Elder care and assure that decisions and care plans honor the voices and preferences of each individual. We believe that the Eden Alternative path is the key to the highest quality of life for the Elders living in our residences.
