 Green House Project Launches New Initiative to Partner with Providers, Developers

A leader in the long term and post-acute care culture change movement,The Green House Project, has unveiled a next-phase initiative called Green House 2.0. The goal of the new effort is to further help providers and developers improve quality of care in a person-centered environment, the group said.
 
Green House Project Senior Director Susan Ryan said the organization “recognizes the imperative to innovate and disrupt the status quo to meet the needs of a rapidly aging society.” The 2.0 initiative will offer even more avenues for the Green House Project to partner with senior living developers,
owners, and operators in “new and more accessible ways."
 
Green House 2.0 includes the use of the group’s Financial Feasibility Model (FFM). The FFM is a data and evidence-based tool meant to give prospective Green House partners a clear understanding of the financial impact of a new development (or the redesign of a traditional setting) to assure the long-term success and return on investment of each Green House home, the organization said. 

Another part of the initiative allows partners to tap into Green House’s ability to serve diverse populations. “Green House homes now include a cross section of people, including veterans and LGBTQ elders, as well as people living with dementia, individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities, and those with ALS and MS,” Green House said.

Prospective and current adopters are able to draw from these experiences to serve a multitude of populations “who deserve real homes and meaningful lives,” the group said.
 
The 2.0 model also now includes homes with short-term rehabilitation, “creating a consumer-driven 
experience with positive outcomes and paving the way for a more diverse payer mix and opportunities to serve a growing population of older adults.”
 
Other facets of the initiative are an expanded board of directors at the Center for Innovation, Green House Project’s umbrella organization, which will now include leaders from both the nonprofit and for-profit sectors of senior housing.
