Jewish Senior Life: A Unique Partnership with an Amish Community Solves a PPE Problem
At Green House we often say “It’s all about relationships” and that certainly was the case for Green House partner Jewish Senior Life (JSL) in Rochester, N.Y.. Early on in the pandemic, JSL had trouble finding PPE that was accessible and affordable. 

An Unlikely Connection
It’s a story of creativity and relationships. The JSL team wondered if the local Amish community might be able to help. This is when JSL Chief Information Officer Travis Masonis stepped up to make a crucial connection.

Green House in the News
The Green House model has garnered nearly 70 positive press hits in prominent national, international, and local outlets since April 2020. Even greater are the number of articles, webinars, and discussions about the future of seniors housing that call for all-private rooms, “more homelike spaces,” small-home built environments—all of which are hallmarks of the Green House model.

Following are highlights of our recent coverage:

Steve Nash Examines his Unique Call to Leadership
In this week's Elevate Eldercare podcast, Susan Ryan sits down with Steve Nash, president and CEO of the Stoddard Baptist Home, which has a legacy of caring for elders in the Washington, D.C., metro area since 1902.

In addition to his numerous leadership roles, Steve was also a recipient of a national grant for training nursing home administrators by the National Caucus and Center on Black Aging.

Steve's stellar leadership capabilities are impressive, and became even more obvious to me as we talked about leading his staff through the pandemic over the least year.
