In 2003, Dr. Terry Lum, Dr. Rosalie Kane, and a team of researchers from the University of Minnesota began a two-year study of the first Green House homes in Tupelo, Mississippi, collecting information from residents, primary family caregivers, and staff.
This paper details the outcomes related to the residents’ families. The study was published in the Health Care Financing Review, Winter 2008-2009/Volume 30, Number 2, and was funded by the Commonwealth Fund. (PDF, 396 KB, 17 pages)
