A Green House home fosters the same feeling and experience you get from living in a real home.
Green House Living for Sheridan
Creating loving homes where individuals live dignified, fulfilling lives
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.
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.
- 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.
Green House Living for Sheridan’s goal is to enhance
the quality of life for Elders in long-term care.

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:
To provide long-term care in loving homes where every person lives a dignified fulfilling life.
The Green House Difference
My Aunt was a resident at Whitney Cottage for almost 4 years,” she wrote, “and, in all that time, she and I experienced a culture of unvarying skill, caring, good humor and acceptance no matter the time of day or night or who was on duty.” She added: “May we all end our days and experience our passing in such an environment of professional competence combined with unconditional love.”
“I don’t know how the name ‘Green House’ originated, but I do know that Great Grandma has bloomed and grown in the caring hands of the staff here.” And from the same family; “Mom and I felt welcome here from day one. The Green House has a homey feeling and easily adapts to each Eider’s needs. The super staff is professional, caring, and respectful.”
Senior living without the institutional feel of long corridors, rows of patients, or stacks of staff. Each cottage offers a range of services that is delivered personally, without the hierarchy that stresses pecking order over service. Beautiful location, with safe places to walk or wheel around.
