Being a part of The Green House network is an opportunity to be a part of something that is bigger than yourself! This is never more true than when we come together for our Annual Meeting and Celebration. This year is certain to be a revolutionary time in Boston! Registration began this week for Peer Network members to attend the Sixth Annual Green House Meeting and Celebration at the Omni Parker House in Boston, MA.
Last year’s well-attended Annual Meeting in Grand Rapids, MI, ignited much enthusiasm about the importance of this annual gathering of our community:
“The Green House Annual Meeting and Celebration was a great opportunity to network with peers from all over the country and discuss the joys, challenges, and unique situations that arise in working in the Green House model. The chance to brainstorm, swap ideas and stories with others who are passionate about elders, and the future of elder care, was an invaluable experience.” – Mimi DeVinney, TR Specialist, Eden Associate (St. John’s Home, Rochester, NY)
“I always find the Green House annual conference to be a great source of networking and an opportunity for a “jump-start” in areas that I may need a boost. One impact particularly from last year’s conference was Dr. Thomas sharing his vision that every house has a story.” – Rhonda Wolpert, LNHA (Mennonite Memorial Home, Bluffton, OH)
This year’s theme, “Revolutionizing Elderhood” acknowledges the two Green House Projects open and thriving in Massachusetts, embodying the amazing revolutionary spirit. The Leonard Florence Center for Living and The White Oaks Cottages at Fox Hill are our hosts. In addition to celebrating the triumphs of these homes, we are excited to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Green House Project at our meeting this year.
We are excited to spend time with Green House adopters from across the country who are open and in development learning, information-sharing and networking during this celebration. Click here to take a look at this year’s brochure!
