Meet Your Instructor

Community Builder, The Eden Alternative Denise Hyde, PharmD, RPh

Denise was inspired to join the culture change movement in 1996, when she learned about The Eden Alternative, and the three plagues of loneliness, helplessness and boredom.

As a pharmacist, she had an epiphany that all of the medication recommendations in the world would not be sufficient enough to improve quality of life for older people.

No stranger to organizational change, Denise has firsthand experience initiating and implementing person-directed care (and all of the challenges along the way). Her change journey began in a Nebraska long-term care community and then expanded through her tenure as a mid-west Eden Alternative Regional Coordinator – a role that involved mentoring organizations committed to change across six states.

In 2009, she joined the Eden Alternative Home Office Team as Community Builder and has been learning from, and coaching, hundreds of core leadership teams in implementing person-directed care across the US and Canada ever since.

These sessions are optional and always recorded for flexibility. Self-directed learning happens on a proposed schedule and involves video lessons that you can view through your phone, tablet, laptop, or desktop at your convenience. In addition, PLUS students have the option to connect with and learn from each other through a private course community group. PLUS courses offer layers of learning potential, in addition to flexibility and convenience.
