Living the Good Life…How the Green House Model Supports People Living with Dementia

By / Posted on May 18th, 2016

“Some people discover their personal mission early in life. For me, decades of life experiences and events would eventually become masterfully woven together to reveal a tapestry of passion and purpose to make life not just worth living for elders, but to actually enable them to live the good life.”  

Susan-Frazier_8924The above quote is from The Green House Project Senior Director, Susan Ryan.  It’s how she chose to open her Ted Talk style presentation at the spring conference for the Association of Jewish Aging Services (AJAS).  Susan was one of many thought leaders sharing her personal experiences and passion for Elders and how every person should be “Living the Good Life”.  As you will see in the video below, Susan takes you on a journey that will introduce you to some special elders that touched her life and made her realize that life can be different!


 (The talk with Susan begins 39 minutes into the video)

We hope to provide a blog series in the near future entitled “Living the Good Life” based on the lives of other elders living in GH homes.
