E46 – Aligning Small House Values in a Non-small House Setting

Person-centered environments within small homes are, by now, well-known and highly regarded approaches to creating optimal environments for aging. This session examines two communities, the Village on the Isle and John Knox Village, both of which collaborated with The Green House Project to align with their values and make physical and environmental changes that are impactful, humanizing, and meaningful. The session examines the challenges, design processes, and outcomes of the work these providers completed—in one case within an existing Green House home on campus and in another with “small-house” values in a larger setting.
