Keynote Speaker: Tom Wagenlander

Tom’s wish of a lifetime is for a world where people take it upon themselves to grant wishes for our oldest generations and take the time to see seniors as the selfless, caring, accomplished individuals they are.
Tom’s more or less a WOL lifer, having joined the organization in 2010 after working in nonprofit event management and the political arena. The privilege of growing up professionally with the organization has provided him the back ground, foresight and ambition to take WOL to the next level.
When, he’s not annoying WOL staff with his questionable musical taste, bad jokes and dumb pranks he’s outdoors scaling mountains, skiing, camping or travelling the world in pursuit of the next big adventure.

What is a Green House Home?

The Green House Project is a dramatic new approach to skilled nursing facilities that is responsive to these changing desires for long-­‐term care. Created by geriatrician Dr. Bill Thomas in 2003, the model is based on three fundamental core values: Real Home, Meaningful Life, and Empowered Staff. In just over a decade, the Green House model has become a nationwide movement that is revolutionizing skilled nursing facilities by transforming eldercare by offering real home settings with a close-­‐knit community among residents and staff.

A Meaningful Life

The Green House® model is person-directed, relationship-based care. The model embraces elderhood as an opportunity for continued growth and development. It creates an environment in which individual needs are met because each person is deeply known and valued as creative, resourceful and whole. Everyday tasks, such as personal care, bathing and mealtime, are seen as opportunities to support elder autonomy, decision making and meaningful engagement. Elders cultivate relationships with neighbors of all ages, and continue to serve as integral members of their communities.

Empowered Staff

The Green House® model is person-directed, relationship-based care. The model embraces elderhood as an opportunity for continued growth and development. It creates an environment in which individual needs are met because each person is deeply known and valued as creative, resourceful and whole. Everyday tasks, such as personal care, bathing and mealtime, are seen as opportunities to support elder autonomy, decision making and meaningful engagement. Elders cultivate relationships with neighbors of all ages, and continue to serve as integral members of their communities.

Real Home

The physical environment of each Green House® home is designed to be a real home. The innovative Green House®model moves from an institutional concept that serves the administrators, to a residential model that nurtures up to 10 elders in each home. Green House® homes fit within the current regulatory and reimbursement structures, and are thus able to nurture people of all abilities, disabilities and financial circumstances. Each home is reflective of those in the surrounding community and is characterized by elements that are “warm, smart, and green.” A warm home is a welcoming place of comfort, safety and refuge. The interior materials, colors and furnishings project a sense of belonging for those living and working in the home. The elders’ private bedrooms allow ample sunlight and have easy access to a common hearth, with a living room, open kitchen and dining area. Smart technology is used to create a comfortable and safe environment that fosters the well-being of elders and those who work with them. A green environment is one that supports growth through meaningful interactions with life-enhancing natural resources, such as plants, natural light and therapeutic outdoor spaces.
