The Team Gleason House for Innovative Living is a residential facility located within St. Margaret’s Skilled Nursing Residence in the Mid-City neighborhood of New Orleans. The Team Gleason House empowers the residents to live with continued purpose through the use of leading-edge technology. Despite physical limitations, residents can control much of their environment; regaining the ability to open doors, change television stations, raise their bedroom shades, and call for the elevator with the use of eye-gaze technology. Team Gleason House is proof that people diagnosed with ALS can not only continue to live productively, but can also thrive.
The true impact of Team Gleason House is felt by the families of its residents. Knowing that a loved one is receiving the highest quality of care in an environment that is both safe and stimulating is invaluable. The ripple effect of this peace of mind extends healing and hope to families who can feel broken by the effects of this disease.

“Living at the Team Gleason House motivates me to be more independent than if I were at home. The loving, caring staff treat me like family, and I have created many friendships with other pALS in the facility. I’m forever grateful.“
