The Leonard Florence Center for Living in Chelsea, MA reflects a new model of care in nursing homes. Equipped with revolutionary technology that allows residents to live active and independent lives, the Center is the first urban Green House® in the country,. The six-story building is designed from the bottom up to look and feel like a real home, with open kitchens, fireplace living rooms and floor to ceiling windows in every room.

Today, the Center cares for more individuals living with ALS than any place else in the world. What’s even more unique is that residents, many of whom are completely immobilized, can control lights, turn on the TV, call for the elevator, open doors and raise window shades, all with help of a computer and sensor that tracks head and eye movements for instruction. This technology enables them to move independently through the entire residence, vastly improving their quality of life. For the residents of The Leonard Florence Center, this freedom is an incredibly precious gift. 100% of the proceeds from this two-mile walk will benefit the LFCL residents and these revolutionary homes.
