Green Houses Growing in Numbers Across the States

    • June 24, 2008

The Green House concept is challenging traditional views of long-term care. Most individuals needing long-term care receive it in an institutionized setting. In contrast, Green House homes provide an environment in which residents receive nursing support without the care becoming the focus of their existence, by altering facility size, interior design, staffing patterns and methods of delivering skilled services to residents.

The Green House concept has spread from four Green House homes in Tupelo, Miss., to 50 Green House homes operating on 17 campuses in 12 states. With funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, NCB Capital Impact is providing technical assistance and pre-development loans to organizations to facilitate replication of the Green House model nationally.
