A Look at the Green House Homes

 

The Green House Homes at Jefferson Park at Dandridge are unique among skilled nursing care. On-site we offer three cottages, with duly certified beds. Each cottage has 10 private rooms, private baths, den and dining areas. Spa rooms provide beautician and therapy services as well as a luxury bathing area. We are not typical assisted living facilities, but instead provide personalized skilled nursing care. The Green House homes were established in 2006 and are the first of the kind in Tennessee to provide this environment, while dramatically improving the quality of daily life for elders.

 

Unprecedented Elder Life

The setting of a Green House is akin to your own home.  Upon arrival you ring the doorbell and wait to be greeted by a Jefferson Park at Dandridge Greenhouse team member.  Once inside the home, you are greeted with an open concept community living space which boasts a hearth, entertainment such as television or books, kitchen and eating area. Each bedroom may be personalized by the resident with their own furnishings and decorations to create a personal touch. Thus, the Green House atmosphere is warm, cozy, and inviting. All rooms are separate and quiet, providing comfort and solace. The Green House homes offer a place for family to stay should their family member become ill. Photos in our gallery showcase that life at Jefferson Park Dandridge is an ideal setting for an elder to reside.

 

Self-Managed Work Teams

Staff teams work collaboratively at the Green House Homes to give personalized care to elders while fostering their continual progress. The Shahbaz is the closest companion to the resident and is present to establish positive life through nurturing, sustaining, and protecting the elder. All aspects of an elder’s life are sustained by the Shahbaz such as: food, personal care, safety, rehabilitation, medical attention, and recreation. The residents work alongside caregivers to develop a routine that suits their individual development.

 

Quality Skilled Care

As elders often have complex medical needs, nurses at the homes provide value-based care that align with each elder’s goals and objectives for their own health. Through clinical assessment, treatment and evaluation, nurses provide constant dialog to all involved. A Guide serves as a coach to direct, supervise, and support the quality of life of each elder. The term “Guide” is used to designate the style of leadership that is present within the homes. Guides oversee compliance, competence, and operational issues while monitoring and assisting Shahbazim and other team members.  The Director of Nursing (DON) monitors regulatory compliance and supervises nurses while assuring the highest standards of clinical attention are upheld. Another team member is the Sage, a volunteer from the community who provides wisdom and serves as an adviser, facilitator, counselor, and role model to the others in the administrative group.
