The article offers insights from long-term care facility operators in the U.S. on how they employ some Green House concepts in a non-Green House facility. Deb Santoro says she developed a step-by-step guide for culture change in a bid to help both clients and staff move away from an institutional to an individualized approach to senior care. Particular focus is given to the country kitchens opened at ACTS' retirement-life communities, along with the revamped menu at Rice Home.
