Green House Forges New Alliance with Pioneer Network

The Green House Project and Pioneer Network are entering an exciting new, formal alliance to strengthen the movement to transform eldercare in the United States.

By going forward together, the partnership will consolidate and reinforce our meaningful work and provide a single address for everyone looking to improve eldercare.  

Stay tuned for many more details in the coming months!

GHP Learning and Growth
The Organizational Outcomes Assessment (OOA) will soon be launched- benchmark your organization with other Green House sites.
This is NOT intended for all staff but rather a select few who have access to 2021 data related to: Financial outcomes/Satisfaction outcomes/Staff outcomes/Clinical data (for assisted living only; SNF data pulled from QI/QM's)
The assessment has been shortened and only takes about 30 minutes to complete.

Capturing data is another way of sharing the Green House story and making the case for this model.
Role of the Nurse Virtual Training a Success  

Late last month, the Green House Project held a virtual training for 30 nurses on the Role of the Nurse in Green House homes. The education covered the power and influence of the nurse, nursing partnerships and took a deeper dive on the importance of advocacy. Participants earned continuing education credit and had the opportunity to engage with other professionals across the Green House network.

GH Senior Director Presents - AJAS Conference
Green House Project Senior Director, Susan Ryan, presented a session during AJAS in early April. Ryan and a panel from Jewish Home Family, Aviva Senior Living and The New Jewish Home spoke about changing the workforce model and the importance of empowering staff in long-term care settings.
Practical incentives such as retention bonuses and an in-house staff grocery store are great examples of ways to increase staff retention and satisfaction, Green House members learned during a recent webinar.

During an episode of the “Deep Dive” webinar series on April 12, participants heard about innovative ways to support and reward staff working in Green House homes nationwide. As the workforce shortage in long-term care continues, ingenious ideas are needed to build trust with staff and recognize their efforts to provide high quality, person-centered care to elders.

Representatives from Brio Living Services in Michigan and Chelsea Jewish Lifecare in Massachusetts shared their successful programs designed to acknowledge workers for their efforts.
