Ideas to Celebrate National Assisted Living Week

Ideas to Celebrate National Assisted Living Week

This year, National Assisted Living Week (NALW) is celebrated the week of September 11-17. The purpose of NALW is to recognize the efforts of those working in assisted living communities and to spread awareness about what these communities offer. This year’s theme is Joyful Moments.

Ideas to Celebrate National Assisted Living Week

Throughout the week, our Nye Health Services campuses will have special events and activities. If you have a loved one living in an assisted living community, this is a great time to visit them. If you don’t have a personal connection to an assisted living community, you can still participate in National Assisted Living Week by spreading the word about all the positive ways an assisted living community enhances the lives of those who live in them. Here are some fun activities and ideas to consider, so you can join in the festivities and show your support for assisted living facility residents and staff members.

1. Make a Card or Letter

Make a card or write a letter expressing your gratitude for everything staff members do for assisted living residents every day. You can drop it off at our campus or mail it to one of the campuses directly.

2. Give Flowers or Baked Goods

Give flowers or baked goods to assisted living team members to say thank you. If you have a neighbor or family member who lives in an assisted living community, you could also bring them a treat!

3. Schedule a Tour

If you or a loved one are considering assisted living services, call to schedule a tour! Our team members would love to show you around our campuses.

4. #AssistedLivingWeek

Spread the word about all the great things happening at assisted living communities during National Assisted Living Week by sharing this blog post on social media using the hashtag #AssistedLivingWeek.

5. Challenge Yourself

Challenge yourself (or someone you know) to learn something new this week! Take an online cooking class, start learning a new language, or pick up a new hobby. One of the best things about growing older is that it’s never too late to learn something new!

No matter how you choose to celebrate, we hope that you’ll join us in celebrating National Assisted Living Week. Assisted living communities and staff members provide essential services and support to seniors across the country. National Assisted Living Week is our chance to show our appreciation for all they do. Let’s show our support and join in the festivities!

This allows them to meet their needs in the moments that matter most! In addition, they’ll have access to savings tools and 1:1 financial counseling. We’re excited about this new benefit and hope it will increase team member engagement and retention.”

While many things have changed over the years, her commitment to providing excellent care to the residents has always been the same.

She was also the team leader for the Eden Journey program from 2005 to 2015. Today, Nette continues to grow professionally by leading the Mentor program for the Medication Aides. When we asked Nette what her favorite part of the job was, she smiled and said, “Working with the residents and getting to know them along with their families!”

Her team members will tell you, from her easy laugh and gentle and caring demeanor to her knowledge of her job and the residents she cares for, she’s the best!
