Enliven resources and publications

Pre-admission booklet
Enliven’s pre-admission booklet is for new residents and their family. It provides useful and practical information about the things you’ll need to do, and think about, in the weeks leading up to and after moving into an Enliven home. Of course, one of our friendly team will talk through this information with you, but this booklet has all the information in one place so you can refer to it later.

Enliven Welcome Book

Welcome to your Enliven home
Enliven’s welcome booklet includes lots of information about settling into life at an Enliven home. Every resident that moves into one of our homes will receive a printed copy of this booklet.

Enliven’s philosophy of care
Enliven’s philosophy of care is based on the elder-directed, internationally-recognised model: the Eden Alternative. This poster outlines Enliven’s philosophy and the related principles and structure.
