The 32nd episode of our podcast, Rethink, is now available!
After a disheartening experience working in nursing homes, former director of nursing Susan Ryan spent years spearheading initiatives designed to keep the elderly out of institutional care settings at all costs.
But over time, she came to believe that there would always be a need for skilled nursing facilities to serve a specific portion of the aging population — just not the kind that have existed for decades.
As the senior director of the non-profit Green House Project, Ryan has traveled the country spreading the gospel of nursing campuses centered around small homes, with resident independence and autonomy at the heart of the care model.
It’s an initiative that could gain steam as regulators, operators, and investors look to a post-COVID future. Listen to this podcast to learn:
— How operators can work with regulators to implement unique, resident-centered designs
— Why Green House can give operators a competitive advantage in their marketplaces
— And more!
