“The Eden Alternative philosophy asserts that no matter how old we are or what challenges we live with, life is about continuing to grow. Building on this new paradigm, it affirms that care is not a one-way street, but rather a collaborative partnership.”
On February 2, 2017, SHC of Greeneville hosted a Winter’s Dream Masquerade Ball. The elders in the community were eager to host a formal event where we could get all dressed up, eat, and dance. They worked diligently on crafting masks, creating decorations, and engaging the help from stakeholders. I experienced such laughter and pure joy as I watched the elders and stakeholders get their hair done, get their nails manicured, and get dressed up in formal gowns and suits.
