Today’s episode of WHYY’s morning live call-in show Radio Times is focused on the idea of “aging-in-place” and the movement away from large traditional nursing homes. Radio Times blog reports:
Changes are also happening in the world of nursing homes where gigantic institutional facilities are being retooled into smaller, home-like environments. This hour, we’ll explore the aging in place movement and some new ideas that are revolutionizing nursing homes.
Joining host Marty Moss-Coane is Dr. Bill Thomas, founder of The Green House Project, Eileen Sullivan-Marx, associate dean at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing and Joseph Coughlin, director of MIT’s AgeLab.
