How Did We Celebrate National Assisted Living Week?

National Assisted Living Week® is an annual observance that provides a unique opportunity for residents, their loved ones, staff, volunteers, and surrounding communities to celebrate the individuals served in assisted living and learn more about this sector of long-term care.

If you didn't catch the fun on each community Facebook page, below are just a few ways we celebrated National Assisted Living Week's wonderful theme of "Capture The Moment."

National Assisted Living Week® is an annual observance that provides a unique opportunity for residents, their loved ones, staff, volunteers, and surrounding communities to celebrate the individuals served in assisted living and learn more about this sector of long-term care.

Capture the Moment” is this year's theme for National Assisted Living Week, which hopes to inspire residents to realize their dreams and seize the day. Simultaneously, the theme also supports reflection, as residents may look back on the pivotal moments in their lives. With the theme’s word play referencing photography, residents may refer to pictures or videos from their past. 
 
The theme also aims to remind assisted living staff that often the little, everyday interactions with residents can deliver high quality, person-centered care. Assisted living communities across the country are encouraged to organize activities and events during NALW that help residents celebrate their past while also enjoying the present.
 
As a result, deep connections are made. For many staff members, residents become family, and that bond can never be broken.
