Thomas is an international authority on geriatric medicine and eldercare. Calling himself a “nursing home abolitionist,” Thomas is the founder of the Green House, a radically new approach to long term care that is being replicated in all 50 states with support from a $10 million grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. In the 1990s, Thomas founded the Eden Alternative, an innovative approach that brings plants, animals and children into nursing homes to improve the well-being of residents. His book What Are Old People For? How Elders Will Save the World was named 2005 Book of the Year by the American Medical Writers Association.
