Taking a mid-way break from his Age of Disruption 2015 US tour, Dr Bill Thomas visits the United Kingdom June 15-19 to challenge ageing stereotypes and talk about how organizations can meet the needs of a savvy older consumer.
The Green House Project isn’t just making waves in the U.S. The model’s innovative transformation of nursing home care was the subject of a British Parliamentary hearing this week on the future of caregiving in the UK. A British researcher who recently visited the United States testified before the Parliament Health Committee Tuesday, Jan. 10, that Britain should look at the Green House model as the future of nursing home care.
Dr. Bill Thomas is currently traveling through Europe visiting partners in the Eden International community and also reaching out to long term care officials and advocates across the continent. He asked me to feature a new blog from one of the organizations he met with that supports building community and home-based networks to help meet the needs of adults and elders.
