WATCH: Small homes are changing nursing home culture

Nov 21, 2017

Small Homes are being called “a new alternative to home care” and an effort to redefine nursing home culture. Think a family kitchen experience rather than served meals, elder decision making as opposed to top-down management calling all the shots, professional home-environment attire rather than medical scrubs just to name a few differences. A Small Homes project is currently underway at St. John’s here in Rochester. We recently stopped by to meet one of the elders and learn a little more about this new concept.
