The Green House Project is looking forward to the opportunity to participate in the AHCA-NCAL Independent Owners Conference. The Green House Project is a radically new, national model for skilled nursing care that returns control, dignity and a sense of well-being to elders, their families and direct care staff. In the Green House model, residents receive care in small, self-contained homes organized to deliver individualized care, meaningful relationships, and better direct care jobs through self-managed team of direct care staff working in cross-trained roles. Green House homes meet all state and federal regulatory and reimbursement criteria for skilled nursing facilities. Recent research shows that Green House homes significantly improve quality of life and care, create better direct care jobs, cost the same or less to operate than traditional nursing homes, and save the healthcare system costs associated with avoidable hospitalizations and pressure ulcers.
