The physical environment of each Green House is designed to be a real home. The innovative GreenHouse model moves from an institutional concept that serves the administrators, to a residential model that nurtures up to 12 elders in each home.
Green House homes fit within the current regulatory and reimbursement structures, and are thus able to nurture people of all abilities, disabilities and financial circumstances. Each home is reflective of those in the surrounding community and is chracterised by elements that are "warm, smart and green." Smart technology is used in the Green House model to create a comfortable and safe environment.
The interior materials, colors and furnishings project a sense of belonging for those living and working in the home. The elders private bedrooms allow ample sunlight and have easy acces to a common hearth, with a living room, open kitchen and dining area.
A green environment is one that supports growth thorugh meaningful interactions with life-enhancing natural resources, such as plants, natural light and therapeutic outdoor spaces.
Based upon "the conviction that we need a new framework around which to organize the experience of those who protect, sustain, and nurture our elders", the innovative organizational structure in the Green House model challenges the traditional nursing home hierarchy to create environments that empower elders and those who are closest to them.
The direct-care providers function within self-managed work teams to provide the day-to-day care for the elders and act as managers of the home.
These individuals called Shahbazim, partner with nurses and other clinical team members to create an empowered clinical care team of excellence.
The Green House model is person-directed, relationship-based care. The model embraces elderhood as an opportunity for continued growth and development. The Green House model creates an environment in which individual needs are met, because each person is deeply known and valued as creative, resourceful, and whole.
