The Green House Project
THE GREEN HOUSE® Project offers a model for long-term care designed to look and feel like a real home. Over the last decade Green House homes have set a new standard for quality care with a model that is both proven and practical.
Today there are hundreds of Green House homes open or in development in the majority of states. Our evidence-based model has been proven — through independent research — to be effective, feasible and sustainable. Our technical assistance is a big reason why The Green House Project has become a preferred partner in helping organizations meet demands of the changing long-term care market.
The Eden Alternative® is an international, non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to creating quality of life for Elders and their care partners, wherever they may live. Focused on changing the culture of care since the early 1990’s, this approach to person-directed care initially came to life in nursing homes and has since expanded its reach to all care settings, including home care and residential care for people living with different abilities. The Eden Alternative firmly believes that culture change unfolds one relationship at a time, and that deep change can only take root when the entire continuum of care is involved. Through education, consultation, and outreach, it currently offers three applications of its principles and practices to support the unique needs of various living environments, ranging from the nursing home to the neighborhood street.
