‘The Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly’ and The Green House model: An Innovative and Cost-Effective Partnership for Comprehensive Care

The first Green House homes included in a Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) partnership will open in early February, joining together two of the nation’s most promising long-term care models.  The Harry and Jeannette Weinberg Green House homes, located in the Thome Rivertown Neighborhood in Detroit, Michigan will serve approximately 21 lower-income older adults who are otherwise able to live safely in the community, but who are currently residing in skilled nursing facilities.  According to Capital Impact Partners, serving these older adults in Green House homes with the support of PACE, compared to providing care in a traditional nursing facility, is expected to save the state’s Medicaid system about $130,000 per year.
