Background Statement

Evergreen Community of Johnson County began in 1864 as the "Johnson County Poor Farm." The County maintained the operator to serve elderly persons without resources until 2002. The county has consistently supplemented funds for Medicaid residents to ensure a higher quality of care than Medicaid alone provides. Friends of Johnson County Nursing Center, Inc.was incorporated in 1997 as a 501(c) (3) organization for charitable giving to enhance the lives of elders. In 2003, the Friends took over operational responsibility as an independent non-profit.   At the end of 2003 our second mission was fulfilled by creating a second operational division, a geriatric education and training division. GERTI (Grow with Evergreen Resources for Transforming Innovations) provides much needed training to employees of nursing homes to master hands-on skills. All our instructors have distinguished themselves in their respective technical areas and in adult education.  

Evergreen Community serves as best practices in motion, testing new concepts and then helping other organizations succeed through GERTI education.   Further Evergreen Community serves 112 residents every day. Our staff of over 140 provides a person directed care approach allowing each resident to maintain choice, dignity and a meaningful life. We have a rich vibrant history of serving people no matter what their resources may be - believing that all persons deserve to live and be cared for in the best possible manner throughout their life.  Of the 112 residents who call Evergreen home, at any given time approximately 10% may be deaf or blind, 10% under the age of 65 and 12% receiving Hospice Services. 
Evergreen Living Innovations remains aligned with Johnson County Government for the use of their building and support, even though the operation is completely separate as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
Impact Statement

Evergreen Community serves community needs for low-income seniors needing healthcare services. Our success, and impact is demonstrated by our 95% plus occupancy rate, various awards, and survey outcomes. Approximately 80% the individuals residing at Evergreen Community are Medicaid recipients - one of the highest in Kansas and Johnson County. We focus on consistent care through consistent staffing with an innovative staffing schedule that provides residents with the same caregivers Monday through Thursday and then Friday through Sunday. Evergreen Community is one of six 'mentor' organizations in the State of Kansas through the PEAK Award. PEAK stands for Promoting Excellent Alternatives in Kansas nursing homes. Evergreen focuses on resident choice in all aspects of care along with meaningful activities and relationships.

With new leadership at GERTI in 2016, classes were offered in person throughout the State of Kansas as well as offered online. GERTI presented to over 330 people at various speaking engagements and taught 19 classes with 213 students attending from over 24 different organizations throughout the Kansas City area and the state of Kansas. Over 1,000 individual volunteers provided more than 2,900 hours of service to our residents and organization in 2016.

In 2016, our Board of Directors reviewed our Strategic Initiatives and they will continue to include:

  1. Quality Enhancement & Impact: ELI will consistently strive to provide the highest quality and person-centered care for those we serve.
  2. Finance & Business Building: ELI will focus on our future sustainability, ensuring we continue to provide innovative new services that meet the evolving aging needs, while maintaining focus on our fiscal responsibilities.
  3. Public Relations: ELI will enhance our voice and visibility to engage the greater community in support of our mission, advocacy, volunteers and fundraising initiatives.
  4. Governance & Board Development: ELI’s Board of Directors will build and maintain strong governance through stewardship, accountability and strategic planning to fulfill our vision and missions.
Needs Statement

Our top needs include remodeling of all shower rooms. We have remodeled three of four large whirlpool shower rooms. We estimate the cost to be an additional $25,000 per shower room. 

GERTI is seeking grants or funding of $35,000 to help underwrite education and consulting opportunities in the greater Kansas City area to improve long-term care. 

We need to grow and expand not only the number we serve, but also to diversify our services. With a waiting list we know there is a need.  We believe there are better ways to provide care and services to our seniors than the current model of institutional settings.   We are looking at ‘Home Care’ services or‘Services without Walls’. All innovation and change takes resources both in land, business plans, design and builds. We would welcome partnerships,and also funding opportunities of both land and donations to create and build new models of care.  
Evergreen Hospice Care, LLC, utilizes donations to assist in fulfilling patient end of life requests, housing and utility needs, and funeral/burial arrangements for those who are low income.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement

From the CEO:

At Evergreen Living Innovations we believe the care of individuals should be just that, about the individual.  That philosophy is the foundation for Evergreen Hospice Care, LLC.  As a non-profit we are focused on quality care and doing what is right for the individuals we serve at the end of their life’s journey. 

At Evergreen Community of Johnson County we have toiled to provide a palliative care program that is respectful of every individual’s choice. We strive to provide comfort and dignity to each individual reassuring them that they will not die alone or be forgotten. Evergreen Hospice Care employees serve with the same dedication and passion.

The employees of Evergreen Hospice Care feel it is an honor to serve individuals at the end of life’s journey. They understand the importance of providing peace and comfort during what can be a difficult and challenging time. They are there for the individual receiving care, family members, and loved ones. Hospice care is not a job but a passion to serve.

Our organization, Evergreen, is as the name means – long enduring, remaining fresh: lively, or interesting, and remain popular despite their age. We serve the most remarkable residents and it is an honor to be trusted by them, and their families, to ‘enhance and be a part of their life journey.’ 

From the Board Chair:

The current regulatory environment of post-acute care today does not allow the use of fiscal resources which could be applied in new models of post-acute care to provide superior resident care at lower cost.Our leadership team and board members are committed to positioning Evergreen Living Innovation for the future. Our pursuit of alternative pathways is challenging but has not paralyzed us. In fact it has helped us discover who we are. We have investigated models of care being provided in Europe. We have had engaging conversations with the Secretary of Aging & Disability Services (KDADS) sharing our new models of care ideas, resulting in developmental conversations with one of KanCare providers.  Our organization is committed to finding the new pathways in this era of healthcare transformation rather than reacting to it.

Description Innovative, compassionate long-term care addressing medical, physical, social, psychological, and spiritual needs. Dedicated to resident centered care model putting resident before task. Open dining times, do not wake residents up. Choices in food, bathing, activities and strive to meet the psycho-social needs first, and medical as normal part of care. Focus on involvement with community, family and relationships.
Category Health Care, General/Other Nursing Home Care
Population Served Aging, Elderly, Senior Citizens
Short-Term Success Residents live in neighborhoods, rather than hallways; they make as many of their own daily living choices as possible; they participate in activities they help plan and want to participate in; they have involvement in their care plans; they have access to neighborhood rooms for activities, breakfast, visiting, etc. Residents call this 'home' and feel part of a community.
Long-Term Success Those living in long term care will experience a quality of life that provides them with daily living choices, is based on a resident-centered care model where the emphasis is on their preferences, mental and spiritual health, and physical health and needs.
Program Success Monitored By Resident and Family Surveys are used to measure success. Both a Resident and a Family Council is set up to meet and give input for change and for appreciation. Quality Assurance measures are in place and nursing reports are mandatory. Every person, no matter what department, working attends one week of GERTI training at the beginning of employment so that they are well versed in Resident Centered Care. It is also in the continued family compliments of our organization, staff and the kindness they receive. Our families and residents are our customers, and we listen to their needs, and use their compliments as a gage for success.
Examples of Program Success The average census is 98% and there is often a waiting list due to word of mouth. Cards and letters from families give testimonials of the difference Evergreen has made or is making in the lives of their loved ones. The majority of residents able to do so participate in an appropriate number of events and activities. When we have new residents move in who had other experiences in assisted or long-term care facilities; and they tell us how thankful they are to be here. When a resident says - I cannot believe I get to sleep late and still get breakfast, the other place woke me at 5:30am! Those comments are why we are here, to treat people with dignity.

GERTI offers courses to improve aging services in long-term care. Our person directed care classes are for all staff working in the profession. Our Leadership and Management course enhances the ability to promote change, meet regulations and improve communication.  We also offer courses in dementia, nurse leadership, as well as death and dying. Our instructors have experience as administrators, directors of nursing, state surveyors, and social workers.

Category Education, General/Other Adult Education
Population Served Aging, Elderly, Senior Citizens, Adults
Short-Term Success The numbers of persons involved in long-term care who take GERTI coursework, especially the direct caregivers (CNAs), will steadily increase, resulting in culture change to person directed care in long-term care communities throughout Kansas and Missouri. The persons taking GERTI courses will learn and understand the regulations that govern their communities and, as a result, will provide better care to residents. It is the CNA who said, she learned more in one week than she had learned in 12 years on her job! It is when students tell us they will never approach their job in the same way, but think about the resident first. It is seeing turnover rates of healthcare workers decrease. It is families and residents who notice the difference in care. These are the life changing moments that drive the GERTI mission.
Long-Term Success As personnel in long-term care complete the GERTI programs and return to work in their field and their communities, they will have the knowledge and resources to help them be successful in changing the culture to one of person directed care - where the person is first and the medical condition is second. All residents will be treated with respect, will have as much control over their lives as they can have, will have choices, and will benefit from knowledgeable and caring staff who want to stay in the long-term care field.
Program Success Monitored By Evaluations are utilized to determine that the course objectives are met, that students increased their knowledge, and that students feel the course(s) were worth their time and made a positive difference in their understanding, knowledge and skills in working with the residents needing long term care, and with other employees on their team. For the past year, overall evaluations have been 4.7 to 4.95 on a possible 5.0 scale. Many students have stated the courses should be mandated for everyone who works in any field of healthcare. We have many healthcare organizations who experienced such positive changes in their staff, they commit to send all of their staff through the programs. 
Examples of Program Success Since its inception in October 2003 through 2017, GERTI has trained over 15,000 healthcare personnel from over 449 organizations, provided consultations to long-term care communities as requested, and has been asked to share information at regional and national conferences for LeadingAge, Pioneer Network, along with Kansas organizations. Our own community, the Evergreen Community of Johnson County, is our benchmark - where we see staff turnover dramatically decreased and quality increased. This is due to the GERTI education, which is required for all Evergreen Community staff. Through repeated requests for the program throughout the State of Kansas, and increasingly, throughout the nation, we know it is needed and effective. 
Hospice is a specialized type of care for those who are facing a life-limiting illness. The majority of hospice care is provided in the patient's home, the home of a love one, or in a contracted long-term facility.  Hospice care is available to anyone, regardless of insurance or financial burdens. No one who needs our services is turned away because the cannot afford to pay for care. Experienced physicians, nurses, and other professional caregivers offer natural, medicinal and up to-do-date approaches to pain and symptom management, to provide peace of mind to help you and your loved ones live better with your illness.
Category Health Care, General/Other Hospice Care
Population Served Elderly and/or Disabled
Short-Term Success Evergreen Hospice makes arrangements for needed medication, and medical equipment and supplies as needed. The hospice team utilizes medications to assist in pain management as well as natural, alternative therapies.  They ensure a peaceful environment and comfortable setting for the patient. 
Long-Term Success
Hospice offers a familiar, stable environment. It provides competent professionals and a comprehensive care plan. Hospice is dedicated to giving your loved one dignity in their final days as well as respecting the person's wishes. Hospice lessens the financial burden and provides personal care and support designed to meet the person's specific needs.
Evergreen Hospice offers individualized plans tailored to meet the unique bereavement needs of individuals and families who have survived  a loss in the Johnson County area.
Program Success Monitored By
Family satisfaction surveys are reviewed as available.
Random drug testing is done on employees. All employees have a complete background check before hired. All volunteers are also required to have a complete background check completed before volunteering begins.
The team at Evergreen Hospice follows up with family members through bereavement services. They offer individualized plans for each family which include one-on-one visits, grief support groups, grief and loss education, and can help families make connections to outside agencies to help overcome obstacles in the grieving process.
Examples of Program Success

Evergreen Hospice Care is about more than helping each patient have a peaceful death; we exist to help each patient have the very best life possible—it’s what drives us to bring quality, individual care and support to our patients and their families.

Our most recent example is when we took a patient to lunch and an afternoon of slot machines at Hollywood Casino. The patient's granddaughter, as well as her entire Evergreen Hospice Care team, joined her in the fun.

Another example of a program success is our hospice team made arrangements for a patient to visit the Kauffman Center for Performing Arts. The resident was a 1944 graduate of the UMKC Music Conservatory. At this event, the Kansas City Symphony was performing music composed by graduate level students from the UMKC Music Conservatory. Evergreen Hospice Care is dedicated to improving quality of life through their program, “Just Live!” It was quite an honor to help this resident reconnect with per passion for music. Four hospice team members accompanied the patient on the outing.
CEO Comments
  1. Over 75% of Evergreen Community residents are on Medicaid, compared with a national average of 67% of nursing home residents and a County average of 55%. This fact demonstrates our commitment to the first part of our mission to serve seniors needing long-term care with quality care regardless of financial resources.
  2. Evergreen Community accepts residents with a high degree of acuity (high medical, physical or dementia-related needs). We also accept younger residents, who are living with challenges such as MS or a brain injury. Approximately 10% of our residents are under the age of 65; 10% are deaf and/or blind; 15% are receiving palliative care at the end of life.
  3. We strive to enhance life's journey for those we serve, and those who serve. This is reflected in our resident directed care approach to create a life that is meaningful for our residents - everyday. It is also reflected in our decreasing staff turnover rate, demonstrating our employees enjoy their work and find it fulfilling. We offer consistent schedules and enhanced educational opportunities.
  4. GERTI is an important vehicle to further improve long-term care, not only for our own residents, but also residents at other nursing homes and individuals in the community who need long-term care services. We seek to increase the pool of qualified, capable workers in the field, as well.
  5. We have "neighborhoods"where our residents live - not hallways A, B, C and D. We have residents, not patients. Evergreen is our residents' home, not just a work place or a business. Our goal is to always put residents first - making sure residents have choices and opportunities for meaningful life. Our staff builds relationships with residents as part of a holistic approach to ‘home’ and ‘family’.
  6. Evergreen Hospice Care, LLC was established in 2015. It is a not-for-profit hospice providing patient centered care to those who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness. The goal is provide peace and comfort that allows for life to be lived in the final stage with dignity and comfort. EHC's mission is to enhance the quality of life at the end of life's journey. Additionally, they work with grieving families to design individualized bereavement plans in order to walk with them on their journey through grief.

Organization Comments

We submit an independent Medicaid Cost report by February each year, then our Medicare and full financial audit is submitted in July. Our 2014 audit is available, as our 2015 audited financials will be available in fall, 2016.  We are limited by Medicaid and Medicare funding which requires operating on a tight margin. Fund raising, grants and donations are essential to our success for enhancements. Generally, most businesses spend 35% of their revenue on labor, however we are a very labor intensive business with more than 75% of our revenues on labor, and yet if we could we would add more direct care staff in order to meet the ever complex health care needs of those we serve. We, in some ways, are the "mom and pop" operation that went away because most could no longer afford to operate the nursing home business, so the evolution of corporations and chains emerged.  Evergreen Community of Johnson County is one of the few independent non-profit long-term care homes. Our revenue is spent to fulfill our mission - providing resident-centered care through our care giving staff. 

Our challenge is to expand and diversify our services in the ever changing healthcare reimbursement market.  We want to expand and serve more low-income persons in Assisted Living and Independent services yet raising the funds for building is challenging.  With a waiting list we know the need is there.  We also understand that aging services needs to change as demands change.  We believe building assisted living for low-income is the right thing to do and are working with Managed Care Organizations in Kansas on developing adequate reimbursement to make this possible.  It is wiser to create more options in Assisted Living with appropriate reimbursement than to force low-income to the highest cost option in skilled nursing homes.  Our challenge is funding and expansion.  We need land and a develop plan.
