  48. 48. The three plagues of loneliness, helplessness and boredom account for the bulk of suffering among our Elders – FFC, Loneliness, Isolation & Depression<br />An Elder-centered community commits to creating a Human Habitat where life revolves around close and continuing contact with plants, animals and children. It is these relationships that provide the young and old alike with a pathway to a life worth living. <br />Loving companionship is the antidote to loneliness. Elders deserve easy access to human and animal companionship. <br />FFC’s Guiding Principles “Eden Alternative”<br />

  50. 50. Guiding Principles “Eden Alternative”<br /><ul><li>Meaningless activity corrodes the human spirit. The opportunity to do things that we find meaningful is essential to human health.
  51. 51. Medical treatment should be the servant of genuine human caring, never its master. </li></li></ul><li>An Elder-centered community creates opportunity to give as well as receive care. This is the antidote to helplessness. <br />An Elder-centered community integrates daily life with variety and spontaneity by creating an environment in which unexpected and unpredictable interactions and happenings can take place. This is  the antidote to boredom. <br />Guiding Principles “Eden Alternative”<br />
  52. 52. An Elder-centered community honors its Elders by de-emphasizing top-down bureaucratic authority, seeking instead to place the maximum possible decision-making authority into the hands of the Elders or into the hands of those closest to them. <br />Creating an Elder-centered community is a never-ending process. Human growth must never be separated from human life. <br />Wise leadership is the lifeblood of any struggle against the three plagues. For it, there can be no substitute.<br />Guiding Principles “Eden Alternative”<br />
