Additional Information on the Greenhouse Project:

The Greenhouse project was adapted in 2011for the purpose of “intentionally designing homes that enables those living and working in the home to experience privacy, dignity, intimacy in  a real home. By transforming the traditional nursing home in these three major ways, people who need high levels of clinical care can have their needs met without that being the focus of their existence.”
