2017: Building the Future – Beyond Better

While 2016 was an impressive year with more than 200 homes open and operating in 30 states, we expect to see that momentum continue in 2017!  It will be a year where we will see our first PACE Green House homes open in Michigan…and the first Green House homes will be opening in Rhode Island, where Saint Elizabeth Home broke a 20 year moratorium on new nursing home beds.

Here’s a quick look at how the year is shaping up for Grand Openings and Groundbreaking ceremonies:

July 6, 2016

For immediate release:

A groundbreaking ceremony was held today in Lake St. Louis, Mo for Cottages of Lake St. Louis!  State Rep. Justin Hill, Karen Vennard, Lake St. Louis Board of Alderman President, several Lake St. Louis Aldermen, and values business partners joined the festivities and ceremonial shoveling of dirt. DSC_0219

The ownership team of locally owned and operated Cottages of Lake St. Louis includes Focused Senior Communities, led by Al Beamer, IronRock Real Estate, led by Tom Hillman, Dr. Joseph Gira, and Barth Holohan.  Cottages of Lake St. Louis is financed through St. Louis Bank, built by GS & S General Contractors, designed by The Lawrence Group, engineered by Horner & Shifrin, with interior design by Invacare Interior Design.

Cottages of Lake St. Louis will be the first Green House homes in Missouri.  It is a whole new approach to Short Term Rehabilitation and innovative Skilled Nursing.  We are Skilled Nursing, differently.  Cottages of Lake St Louis will be built to resemble a traditional residential neighborhood.  A home away from home.

DSC_0215THE GREEN HOUSE® PROJECT in in 30 states and has spent over a decade creating a new vision for the future of elder care. The Green House model delivers better health and satisfaction outcomes than traditional nursing homes. And by creating a real home environment and providing elders with dignity, autonomy and choice, Green House homes provide people with the best quality of life possible.  The Green House model delivers high quality care. Close relationships with elders means that health issues are identified and treated earlier. And the calm, familiar, real home atmosphere in Green House homes improves the well-being and functioning of elders with dementia.

Our Values include:

  • Meaningful life focused on personal choices,
  • Consistent, compassionate, highly trained and empowered staff
  • Advanced, research driven medical services in a real home.

Construction has begun on a 5.2-acre site at 2885 Technology Drive, the southeast corner of Technology Drive and Feise Commercial Drive in Lake St Louis (near the Hwy. 364/I-64 interchange). The Cottages are 6 comfortable homes, each with a dining room, cozy family room with fireplace, den, spa and an open kitchen surrounded by 10 private bedrooms with private bathrooms. Each Cottage has a large landscaped patio with lush gardens and walking paths around the community.  State of the art therapy, nursing and activities services are an integral part of our total wellness plan. DSC_0198

This Green House Model for those needing skilled nursing for rehabilitation or skilled long-term care is new to the area, but has an amazing positive and proven reputation based on a decade of research. You can learn more at http://www.TheGreenHouseProject.org  In our homes the schedule of each Elder is decided by the Elder, not a calendar on the wall, beginning with natural awakening each morning. Our goal is to facilitate the Elders’ independence and ability to pursue their interests. Elders in each home share meals at their common table where family members are also encouraged to join.  Staffing ratios are among the best in the area, allowing for greater interaction and deeper relationships between Elders and caregivers.  This model gives Elders the ability to be a part of life in the home, planning, suggesting and/or engaging in activities and meals, or, sitting and chatting with the staff while they prepare the meal in the home.  It’s natural.  It’s common sense, and it works.  Our goal is to see every Elder live each day to the fullest.
