Leadership, COVID, & the Small House Model

Susan Ryan sits down with Jill Wilson and John Ponthie, two senior living providers that operate more small house/Green House homes under their organizational umbrellas than anyone anywhere.

Jill Wilson is president and CEO of Otterbein Senior Life, a faith-based not-for-profit ministry based in Lebanon, Ohio, and John Ponthie is co-owner of Southeran Administrative Services, a Sherwood, Ark.-based company that provides administrative support services for 36 nursing homes, including four campuses that encompass 33 Green House homes.

This compelling conversation takes a look at what drives these two innovators to do what they do and why they love the Green House model.

They each make the business case for the Green House/small-house model, as well as describe the experiences of the homes amid the pandemic.
