St. John’s Green House Project Brings Elders Back To Their Communities

On the heels of opening the 100th Green House Project home in the nation, we’re getting ready to celebrate another landmark — St. John’s Home Green House Project in New York will be the first in the nation to bring elders back to their hometowns to live in homes throughout the greater Rochester community.

St. John’s will open it’s first two Green House Project homes this fall in the community of Penfield followed by additional homes throughout the community. Elders from Penfield currently living in St. John’s Home will have the opportunity to move back to their hometown to be near family, friends, their church congregation and take advantage of other community resources.

The Penfield Green House homes are located about 10 miles from St. John’s Home main campus in Rochester. They will be the first decentralized Green House homes to open. Other notable community-based Green House Projects are in development in Sheridan, Wyo. , and Baltimore (see also Wyoming Launches First Community-Driven Green House Project Eldercare Homes and Get Excited For Maryland’s First Green House Project).

“Anyone who needs nursing home services will have the opportunity to live in a home environment,” Green House Project Guide Rebecca Priest told Rochester’s Channel 13 ABC News. “Whether you have dementia or any type of need as you age you should have the opportunity to stay in your community and this is the first time in the U.S. we’re making it possible to do so.”

Channel 13 aired a three-part series on St. John’s Green House homes this week. Click here to learn more about St. John’s Green House homes.
