The Green Hill Green House® Homes, the first of it’s kind in New Jersey, are located in a neighborhood setting on the Green Hill property in West Orange, New Jersey. Each Green House is a self-contained home for ten (10) nursing care residents who enjoy private bedrooms, and bathrooms centered by a living area with a hearth, an open kitchen and dining area. With the look and feel of a real home, the Green House model combines small homes with a full range of personal care and clinical services. The model’s operation and design is crafted to de-institutionalize skilled long-term care, and return dignity and a sense of wellbeing to residents, their families, and staff.
Family and friends are welcome to visit residents at the Green House Homes and to participate in daily activities. The Green House Picnic is just one of the many events held throughout the year at Green Hill Inc., for Green House Homes and Green Hill Legacy residents.
