Questions Asked

  • What makes the green house a viable business model? How does the ROI compare to other senior living options?
  • Will you talk/explain more about self-managed team approach to operating the greenhouse home?
  • are there any visuals you can share
  • How can I find a greenhouse home for myself when I am ready?
  • Are there Greenhouse homes in the DC area?
  • It seems fairly obvious that this is a better model for care -- what do you think it will take to shift the entire or at least the majority of the nursing home system into this model? And what would be the road blocks to making this happen? There's so much talk of nursing home reform, especially since Covid.
  • please discuss pricing
  • How are Green House homes doing as far as staffing right now- compared to traditional SNF/AL?
