Michelle and a few of her colleagues in long-term care decided they needed to change the culture and quality of life for the residents of their skilled nursing facility. In their search for ideas, they turned to Dr. Bill Thomas’ “The Green House Project,” a non-profit organization dedicated to creating alternative living environments to traditional nursing home care facilities. The first changes they implemented were to create a sense of community among residents and staff, and to give the residents autonomy to make choices that effect their daily lives.
