Greenhouse's First Fishing Trip! 

On June 22nd, 2015, Green House Living for Sheridan took 13 of our elders out to the Ranchester City Park for a picnic before our first fishing trip at the Ranchester City pond. The weather was absolutely beautiful and we had lots of bites! What fun!  
It was the first fishing trip ever for elder, Ann Greeley, who also caught the biggest fish! Family members Wayne and Barbara Ransbottom, along with Wayne’s sister, Susie, volunteered their time to help with the fishing and provided the fishing poles and bait. Wayne made the arrangements with the Game and Fish for Green House Living to acquire a special limited fishing permit so we can do this again in the future! Thank you to all the volunteers and staff members, Wayne, Misty, Bessie, Jennifer, Julie and Chris who helped our elders enjoy the day!

About 15 of our staff members and volunteers will be going through the certification training in a couple of weeks. Stay tuned to hear more about the implementation of this program for our elders’ life enrichment by enjoying the music of their era!

Creating loving homes where individuals live dignified, fulfilling lives
through quality care, personal choice and positive relationships



In 2005, the vision to build Green House cottages in Sheridan grew out of the wish of Sheridan caregivers who wanted something better for their loved ones. It progressed through a community needs assessment, partnership with the City of Sheridan, and the creation of a nonprofit legal entity called Alternative Elder Living, Inc. (AEL). Sheridan is the first community in the nation to create Green House homes through the will of committed and passionate citizens that believed in the mission:

Creating loving homes where individuals live dignified, fulfilling lives through quality care, personal choice and positive relationships.

Through the generosity of the Sheridan community with donations of over $3,000,000 and a USDA loan of $5.2 million, the four cottages have been built and are a home to many elders.

Alternative Elder Living, Inc. a 501(c )(3) organization dba Green House Living for Sheridan is a part of the national Green House Project. The national movement envisions homes in every community where:

  • Elders and others enjoy excellent quality of life and quality of care
  • They, their families, and the staff engage in meaningful relationships built on equality, empowerment, and mutual respect
  • People want to live and work
  • All are protected, sustained, and nurtured without regard to the ability to pay

There are currently Green House homes in 33 states. Go to the to find Green House homes throughout the U.S.
