Green House WorkshopsGHP House workshop.png

Green House workshops are designed to give forward-thinking providers and developers more in-depth information about The Green House Project (GHP) and the highly innovative small-house model of long-term and post-acute care, our Best Life dementia care approach, and our Cultural Transformation consultancy services for those who want to make substantive changes in their care model but cannot build new. In 2020, Green House workshops will be held throughout the year in eight cities across the the country and in Canada.

Workshop Details
There are two types of Green House workshops--those that are one-day events and those that are two-day events. At $99 per person, the one-day workshop begins at 10 a.m. and concludes at 4 p.m. It consists of an overview of the Green House model and other services provided by the organization, as well as the following elements:
  • The Green House Project (GHP) values and essential practices and an exploration of how the model is reflected in various communities.
  • The growing evidence base, which shows positive financial, clinical, and quality of life outcomes.
  • Innovative tools and resources that GHP offers.
  • Conversations with leadership and staff from an operating Green House organization about their experiences.
  • A tour of a Green House home, where possible.

The one-day workhop (or day one of a two-day workshop) is for those interested in learning more about the model and considering the next step in bringing the Green House philosophy to their communities.

Our two-day workshops include Day 1 (as described above) followed by a second day of more in-depth discussion and information. Day 2 of the workshop is $495 for the first person from an organization and $375 for each subsequent individual from the same organization. The day takes a much deeper dive into the key factors that affect the development, financial viability, and ROI of Green House homes. It is highly recommended for the following stakeholders who are ready to take the next steps toward developing the Green House model: senior living architects, developers, and experienced operators.

Experts will lead you through essential components to becoming a Green House adopter as follows: 

  • Determining optimal sizing for a project;
  • Selecting sites and their considerations;
  • Designing tips to create small and real homes;
  • Working with state agencies on CON and licensing approvals;
  • Streamlining the construction process; and
  • Finding and assessing Green House Project management expertise.

Also on tap for the second day are practical tips, case studies, and lessons learned from both for-profit and non-profit organizations around the development of Green House homes. For those interested in attending Day 2 of the workshop, it is highly recommended to have previously attended an overview workshop (such as Day 1).
