Green House Project offers an alternative to traditional nursing homes

Celebrating its tenth anniversary in February of last year, the center named after the late Chelsea philanthropist Leonard Florence was widely praised as “innovative” and “revolutionary.” The designations were due to its basic existence.  It’s unlike any other nursing home.

The senior living industry will never be the same

"The Green House model costs no more to the consumer than traditional facilities and offers a philosophy of care that emphasizes quality of life, emotional well-being, and elder choice. That has led to everything from better clinical outcomes to higher levels of family and elder satisfaction and lower depression rates among elders."

Interview with Edie Morgan, Founder of The Mustard Seed Project

The word “facility” was outlawed when talking about the Green House Project. The word “home” evolved to mean “facility” in the past, but we’re taking it back and embracing the real meaning. It’s never going to be exactly like a person’s very own home, but the concept of care revolves around each individual and their preferences and their needs, their lifestyle, their skills and abilities, their memories.

Mustard Seed Begins Building First Home for KP Elders

“What we’re building is a Green House Project model; it’s a small-hearth home model, so for example if there’s a resident whose family wants to come and bake cookies, they can do that in the common kitchen. The whole effort is to make it feel like home and not a facility."

A New Culture of Aging

Join Green House Project founder Dr. Bill Thomas, Green House adopter Matt Trimble of Saint Elizabeth Community, and Navigator Elder Homes of New England CEO Renee Lohman for a discussion about Navigator's new Green House-inspired development on Martha's Vineyard, as well as the overall future of elder-directed care.

Calling All Elders

"Once fully funded and all regulatory boxes checked, elders needing nursing support or rehabilitation will have the option of communal living with private bedrooms and baths, shared living and dining space, a country kitchen, and a sense of independence. In other words, a place that provides licensed, skilled nursing, but contained in a setting that feels and looks more like home."

Give your residents the best life!
