This article offers a look at culture change implemented at some U.S. long-term care facilities in a bid to deliver a more personal approach to senior care. The Green House is one example of this shift in senior living. In May 2004, Tupelo, Mississippi became the site of the first four Green Houses. Particular focus is given to the Green House Dining Experience training module developed by Morrison Management Specialists. Gary Morgan of St. John's Lutheran Ministries cites one of the obstacles to opening the Green Houses.
