The Green House Homes at Traceway offer a wonderful alternative for those who desire a small, intimate atmosphere, while maintaining privacy. Each home consists of 10-12 private bedrooms with private baths surrounding a spacious living area complete with a fireplace, large kitchen and a dining table where meals are served family style. The aroma of home-cooked meals fills the air each day as staff and residents prepare three home-cooked meals a day. Skilled nursing care is provided in a cozy home-like atmosphere. These were the first Green House homes in the nation.

Sponsoring Organization History
Respect for aging is central to the Bible’s teaching. Concern for elders is found in the stories of both the Old and New Testaments, and we recognize the contribution elders have made to family and community throughout the ages. This is the theological base upon which Methodist Senior Services has built our ministry. We share this rich heritage with the Mississippi Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church, whose dreams led to our birth more than forty years ago. Decades later, we still share this commitment to hold the wisdom and experience of God’s older children in high esteem. Mississippi Methodist Senior Services is the proud developer of the first Green House residences in the United States. Mississippi Methodist Senior Services serves over 1,600 residents on eleven different campuses, and more than 600 additional individuals through Senior Services’ Outreach Programs (such as Meals on Wheels, Homemaker and Transportation Services). The Traceway Retirement Community in Tupelo has independent living cottages and assisted living, in addition to 10 operating Green House homes. The Riggs Manor Retirement Community in Raymond offers independent living apartments and personal care studio apartments,and has two assisted living Green House homes in operation.
