This week, Pridemark Builders are framing the first community Green Houses at St. John’s Home in Rochester. These two homes, about 11 miles from our nursing home in the town of Penfield, will house 20 elders from our community in the center of a new townhome development.
This placement will ensure that the Green Houses are part of a true multigenerational community. We have already received great support from the Neighborhood Association and plan to weave the elders into the fabric of their new community. To help with this integration, we are giving a priority for the homes to people who previously lived, or have family ties, in the town of Penfield.
Two other homes in the town of Henrietta, 5 miles from St. John’s Home, will be built later this year. The future of “aging in community” is now!
