The Foundation's Green House Initiative was designed to: (1) increase the Green House adoption rates from 25 homes per year to 125 through intensive financing, marketing and policy activities; (2) develop a series of program evaluations; and (3) use the Green House Initiative as the catalyst for transforming institutional care at skilled-nursing homes.This project is part of a research collaborative to evaluate the Green House Project. The research collaborative will provide policy-makers and practitioners information on how the Green House model is implemented and how it affects care in long-term care facilities. The objective of this project is to identify structures and processes of care that relate to resident outcomes in various skilled nursing settings, with special focus on Green House homes. The researchers will engage in on-site data collection using interviews, observations and resident chart review. Deliverables will include written briefs for use by the national program office and grantees, presentations, journal articles and other activities with members of the collaborative research team.
