The article reports on a new Green House plan to create at home comfort as well as social opportunities for long term nursing home patients. This plan is required to follow the same nursing home regulations and the costs are similar. Each home will provide for six to ten residents with private rooms and open kitchen and dining areas. Social activities and daily care are included. The goal is for the elderly to reside in a more private comfortable environment and also to have daily and clinical assistance available.
