The Green House Project

Orientation & Overview

Why is the Green House Project Different?

The Green House model of elder care creates small, intentional communities for groups of elders to focus on living full and vibrant lives. The model is a radical departure from traditional nursing homes and assisted living facilities – offering individual, intimate spaces and staff that help elders live better and with more independence. In a Green House home, elders receive a high level of personalized and professional medical care and support with daily living, without feeling that their lives are being disrupted or overtaken.

The Green House model replaces large, impersonal, nursing facilities with inviting, comfortable, social living spaces that research shows help elders to live happier, more satisfying lives.
