For years, Barry Berman and Betsy Mullen thought they’d built the best possible nursing home – to the point where people came from all over to see their state-of-the-art nurses’ stations and efficient meal distribution.
But then Barry’s own mother needed nursing home care at their facility, and he saw firsthand how quickly even the best institutional setting can take a physical and emotional toll on an elder.
That experience inspired Barry to explore the Green House model, and today, he and Betsy can’t believe they ever provided care any other way.
Listen in to learn how these executive leaders made the Leonard Florence Center for Living, part of Chelsea Jewish Lifecare, a place where elders and people with disabilities don’t just survive but thrive – and a place where staff members feel so valued that they’ve never had to use temporary agency workers.
