What Makes a Green House Home? How You Decide Matters – May CARE Connections

How does problem solving affect nursing practice and quality of care? Read about SoN research into innovative nursing homes in the May issue of CARE Connections, the monthly newsletter of the School’s Center for Aging Research and Education.

Here’s an excerpt:

As a physician for a Green House Home with very low hospitalization rates describes it, “There’s no … you know, sneaking in and out or missing someone going down the hall. When you have an open area like in the cottages, people are bumping into each other constantly. So if the OT [occupational therapist] is there, they [the physicians] bump into them. … You see people, and they mention things to you.”

This month’s CARE Connections also includes a profile of CARE Affiliate and Assistant Professor in Human Development and Family Studies Kristin Litzelman, and news and events relevant to older adult health. Read the issue here.
