Susan Ryan sits down with Roger Myers, president and CEO of Presbyterian Villages of Michigan, (PVM), headquartered in Southfield, Mich. He talks about bringing the first Green House homes to Michigan as the second organization in the nation to embrace the innovative model.
Myers talks about how the decision was made, balancing risk with pursuit of innovation, and the impact of the model on his team and the elders who live there. He shares the scope of services and geographical reach of PVM across the state, including the proliferation of the Program for All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (known as PACE) and home- and community-based services options—initiatives and services that exemplify the guiding vision and values of the organization.
For those unfamiliar with PACE, Myers provides a snapshot today of what it is, why it’s important, and what PVM is doing broadly to address affordability, accessibility, and diversity and inclusivity across the continuum. He goes on to describe the synergistic partnership that has brought a better quality of life experience to the Green House community located on the Detroit waterfront.
