Living life a little alternatively A decision we made back in 2009 to adopt the Eden Alternative means that we have a different DNA to other care homes. The core concept of the Eden Alternative is simple: Care environments are habitats for human beings that should promote health, wellbeing and growth rather than facilities where the frail and elderly stagnate and decline. The Eden Alternative philosophy contributes to preventing and eliminating the plagues of loneliness, helplessness and boredom. It is encapsulated in ten principles that form part of a rigorous learning, implementation and registration process overseen and consistent with the international, not-for-profit Eden Alternative organisation. Since adopting the Eden Alternative, Knox residents have had a higher level of wellbeing. Knox is much more lively and spirited. There is continuing evidence of more spontaneity, increased care and family engagement. Knox ensure companion animals, children and plants are part of our daily lives, just as they might have been earlier in life.

unique and loving it

Every day is a gift. Our mission is to make sure we add more to the fulfilment and enjoyment of every single one.
