Greenhouses - The New Trend in Nursing Homes

National Pubic Radio ran an interesting series of stories over the past two days about some new nursing home arrangments that seem to be working well for the elders who live in them.  The new arrangements involve having elder residents live in a house, affording them personalized care while at the same time providing them with a more family-friendly living space.  Unfortunately, it is not clear that those in the nursing home industry will be willing to make the change due to the fact that Medicaid budgets are not the most stable (to say the least).  [bm]
