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.
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!
