Green House Homes
Where love matters
For more than 40 years, Porter Hills has been at the forefront of providing care and services to older adults in our community. We continue to build upon our legacy of providing each individual the freedom and flexibility to live his or her best life, while constantly striving to improve the care and comfort of those we serve. In that spirit, we are pleased to offer THE GREEN HOUSE® home model of skilled nursing. Porter Hills’ Green House® homes provide improved quality of life through a dramatically new way of organizing the care and the life of elders in need of a nursing home setting.
What is a Green House?®
Step into Porter Hills’ Green House® homes and you’ll see why this place is different. It is a place that focuses on life, and its heart is found in the relationships that flourish here. In process and structure, THE GREEN HOUSE model provides a natural environment that promotes a meaningful experience with elderhood and the later stages of life. The Green House model is a de-institutionalization effort that restores individuals to a home in the community with the full range of personal care and clinical services expected in high-quality nursing homes. The small scale of home, the varied functions of the staff, and the flattened hierarchy allow more opportunities to know an elders identity, understand, and meet their needs which results in meaningful primary relationships. Porter Hills’ Green House® homes embrace this new model while being fully licensed nursing homes.
