Exploring Green House Core Values Real Home

first_imgby, Rachel Scher, The Green House ProjectTweetShareShareEmail0 Shares“I want to tell you a story about the beginning of The Green House model”…“Part of being home is being where you belong,” states Dr.Bill Thomas.  When he envisioned The Green House concept he wanted to create a home rather than a “home-like” environment. He wanted every Green House home to feel warm and inviting and be a place of safety and refuge. Most importantly, he wanted the individuals living and working there to create home together.Join Dr. Bill Thomas as he reflects on what it means to create Real Home, and how this value is foundational to The Green House model.  To radically transform long term care, Dr. Thomas had to manage the technical aspects, while bringing the “heart and soul” back into the paradigm.  It is an interesting question, “what is home?”, because it isn’t necessarily a building or an address, but rather a feeling, of safety, refuge, relationship.  Green House homes strive to fit into the culture of the surrounding community through intentional design that looks and feels like a real home.It has been 10 years since the first Green House project opened its doors, and we are marking this occasion by highlighting a different aspect of this model each month.  The first three themes are the foundation that ties all Green House homes together: Real Home, Meaningful Life and Empowered Staff.  Each aspect of The Green House model has power on its own, and the real beauty occurs when they all come together to create something new, something special… a synergy that impacts the lives of those who live and work there.Enjoy this video, on Real Home and stay tuned for Meaningful Life… Related PostsTweetShareShareEmail0 SharesTags: home Innovation THE GREEN HOUSE Projectlast_img read more
