Local, Senior Living Community Celebrates ‘Season of Reflection’
The assisted living communities where our residents live are so much more than just that. They are places where caregivers, residents, family members, and communities come together as an extended family. Residents of assisted living communities are active members of the larger community, offering their knowledge, life experiences and involvement; their past contributions continue to be a vital part of our rich history.
Assisted living is a critical long term care option for older adults and individuals with disabilities that fosters choice, dignity, and independence; assisted living communities are committed to excellence, innovation, and the advancement of person-centered care.
The week of September 10-16, 2023, we celebrate National Assisted Living Week® and its theme “Season of Reflection.” This theme encourages communities to highlight the dedication of staff, the individuality of residents, and the deep connections formed in these settings. It is also an opportunity to welcome the sense of renewal that comes with the changing season. We hope the community will join us during this special time.
Check back often as will update with pictures from our many events scheduled this week, including a Proclamation Signing with Governor Kay Ivey, Senior Prom, Classic Car Show, Chili Cook-Off, Sock Hop and many more activities and events.
National Assisted Living Week was created by the National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL) in 1995 to recognize the role of assisted living in caring for America’s seniors and individuals with disabilities.
The annual observance inspires assisted living communities around the country to offer a variety of events and activities to celebrate the individuals they serve, as well as to help educate members of the public about this distinct aspect of long-term care.
