An Interview with
Dr. Bill Thomas
What is the difference between the Eden
Alternative and the Green House Model?
Bill Thomas: The Eden Alternative

they are, with the stuff they have, in
the building they own. The Green House
is, what I like to call, the Eden
Alternative on a clean sheet of paper.

and the capability to start over, the
Green House is the way that you want to

Tips for Caregivers
With more than one million people affected with
Parkinson’s disease in the United States today, there are many issues

With the majority of those who are diagnosed over
the age of 60, there are still many people who are diagnosed as young as
age 30. Caregivers need to be aware of not only the issues that
Parkinson’s poses for their loved ones, but ways that they can help

just trying to wrap my head around this whole thing. We have a
daughter who just graduated from college and a son who will be a
junior in high school. This has been tragic for our whole family.
