This caught my eye:
For senior living communities that provide the full continuum of living options, supporting the needs and preferences of residents who require long-term care is a high priority. The Green House® long-term care model is an innovative effort to “de-institutionalize” long-term care settings and practice. Green House homes are self-contained residences for six to 10 older adults who receive comprehensive care by a self-managed work team and clinical support staff. The homelike environment and person-directed model of care maximizes residents’ abilities, offers meaningful and engaging programs, and empowers staff. According to the survey, the projected growth in Green House and other small house models over the next five years will be significant. Less than 6% of senior living communities currently offer one of these models, but nearly one-third of respondents predict they will in the next five years.
