A Green House home is a small house for elders who need help with daily activities. Unlike a traditional nursing home, The Green House home is much like a private home with an open kitchen, a hearth, a single dining room table and lots of natural light.
The Green House model enhances the quality of life of an elder by emphasizing privacy, dignity, meaningful activity, relationships, and independence as well as improved quality of care.
Don’t take our word for it! Below, a group of elders describe living in Green House homes in their own words at the 2010 Annual Green House Meeting and Celebration.
