California Senate Committee approves a new nursing home licensing category that would allow Green House homes in the state

“It puts the ‘home’ back into nursing home.”  That’s how California Senator Elaine Alquist (D-San Jose) described SB 1228 when addressing the Senate Committee on Health this week.

The bill would create a new health facility licensing category for a small house skilled nursing facility that is either a standalone home or consists of more than one home providing skilled nursing care in a noninstitutional setting.

David Pierce of Mt. San Antonio Gardens, a continuing care center in Pomona, explained that his organization has been pursing approval to build a Green House home for years.

  1. We are the architects for the first Green House (prototype) at Mt. San Antonio Gardens: D.S. Ewing Architects, Inc.

    Hurray! The “culture change” that everyone in California keeps talking about seems to finally be getting some legs.

  2. After spending a considerable amount of time understanding the goal of the Greenhouse Project, I am unaware of any other extended care setting that matches the deep desire for all of us to be connected to one another and the search for mastery in our lives.

    It may be a couple of decades before I my level of dependency increases to need a place like The Greenhouse Project, but thank you Dr. Thomas for your vision and all who are involved daily in its implementation.
