Green houses

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) is investing $15 million over five years to support Green Houses, home-like alternatives to traditional, institutional nursing homes, according to a June 24 Wall Street Journal (WSJ) article. RWJF is working with the founder of the Green House movement, physician Bill Thomas, a Harvard Medical School graduate, who became "distressed" by his experience working in a nursing home. Green Houses are designed for seven to ten seniors, each with his or her own room, who dine together every night.
