A Kaiser Health News article, Maryland’s First Green House Project Nursing Home Aids Low-Income Seniors, described a new community on the site of the old Memorial Stadium in Baltimore.
Associated Catholic Charities will run the Green House Residences at Stadium Place.
Am I mistaken or is does the headline contain an oxymoron? Is it possible to have a Green House Project Nursing Home? I think not, given that Dr. Bill Thomas calls himself a nursing home abolitionist. The two concepts most definitely should not appear in the same place!
