I hope to do a piece on the Green House Project soon, but I saw this video today and had to share. I truly believe that this is the elder care model of the future, and it’s something we should all be advocating for.
My family was blessed. After two less than stellar years (putting it mildly) with Mom living in a traditional facility, we found what, in my mind, was (and is) elder care Shangri-La. Eason House, is an adult family home to five residents and follows many of the same principles as the Green House homes. Institutional care, even the cream of the crop, simply cannot compete. The ratios just do not permit this kind of individualized care and nurturing. It’s an amazing thing to witness first hand.
