Long Term Care for Sheridan
Creating loving homes where individuals live dignified, fulfilling lives
The four Green House cottages are ideal settings to promote visits from family and friends. Congregation areas for gardening, entertainment and dining are perfect for meaningful conversations and rest.
Paramount to the Green House model is community. Through daily fellowship, Elders continue to live meaningful, connected lives. Family and friends of all ages feel welcomed by the lively and familiar environment, which allows those precious, intergenerational relationships to thrive without interruption.
- Central Living – Each cottage has a large, central living area which is the main gathering place for visiting, musical entertainment, tv and afternoon naps by the fire; volunteers and guests participate in spirit lifting activities with Elders on a regular basis.
- Beauty and Barber Shop – A whirlpool tub and salon is conveniently located inside each cottage’s spa room. Weekly beauty/barbershop services are available.
- Private Rooms – All rooms have a private bathroom and shower. Elders are encouraged to decorate and personalize their rooms.
