Long term care in a real home setting
An innovative model of nursing home care
Saint Elizabeth GREEN HOUSE® Homes opened in 2017, bringing a new and innovative model of nursing home care to Rhode Island. The four Green House Homes are located on a cul de sac adjacent to Saint Elizabeth Home in East Greenwich.
In the GREEN HOUSE® Homes, (four small nursing homes each with 12 residents), care is provided by a Shahbazim, ( this is a special name to identify the caregivers, who are specially trained certified nurses aides). These caregivers are the heart of the homes, interacting with the residents, they build relationships and support meaningful living and activities. The Shabazim in the house also cooks and does laundry, while engaging with elders.
Registered Nurses follow physician orders and administer medications, and nursing treatments to residents and have the opportunity to build strong relationships with both the residents and the caregiving team. Additionally, a team of professionals (nursing, social work and dietary) collaborates to provide optimal care to residents, with the "Guide" leading the teamwork amongst all GREEN HOUSE® Homes staff.
