Willing to drive farther for a Green House home:


A house… and a whole lot more.

Green House homes are a way of life for the elders thriving in them, the teams working in them, and the healthcare providers who believe in them.

What makes The Green House Project different?

  • A national brand.
  • An evidence-based model backed by study after study proving it works.
  • A team of expert consultants helping providers create them.

Celebrating more than 17 years of success, the Green House movement is transforming long-term and post-acute care nationwide. It is the most radical, yet common-sense solution you’ll ever experience.

What is The Green House Project? It’s the most natural way of:


  • Nurtures elders in a circle of care.
  • Enables deep relationships between Elders and caregivers.
  • Turns the institutional organizational chart upside down.


  • Provides a home for 10-12 people, with private room/baths, that harmonizes with the neighboring community.
  • Creates a real home environment with an open kitchen, great room, and easy access to the outdoors.
  • Meets federal and state licensing requirements.


  • Respects flexible routines and personal preferences.
  • Nurtures a familial experience around a common dining table.
  • Welcomes friends and family members.
  • Encourages personal growth and enables Elders to continue to pursue their interests and passions.
