Twenty-two staff members recently graduated from a three-day Green House Project training program at Healthia, ACH Group’s first purpose-built small household care home. This was the 6th Green House Project CORE training provided to Healthia staff since the home opened in August 2023.

The Green House Project training program helps us achieve our person-directed care and living model at Healthia, focusing on the values of real home, meaningful life, and empowered staff.

The feedback from staff was extraordinary. Comments such as “I have never enjoyed training like I just have” and “It was an experience to remember” underscored their enthusiasm.

🌟 Our Healthia team is fully committed to delivering this new model of care, with residents at the heart of everything we do. Their daily rhythm shapes life within our homes.
