The Idea that Spurred the Movement: 10 Years of The Green House Project

By / Posted on November 5th, 2013

It is hard to believe that it has only been 10 years since the first Green House homes opened in Tupelo, MS. It all began when Green House founder,  Dr. Bill Thomas, had a radical idea that people should age in real homes, rather than institutions.  The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation agreed, and this model has served as a catalyst for significant social change.  To date, 1579 elders, veterans and people with disabilities live as full and meaningful lives in Green House homes, and gaining momentum to bring this model to a community near you.

Be sure to watch the below video to see the impact that this model made on long term care, and what the future holds.
