Established by the National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL) in 1995, National Assisted Living Week® recognizes the role of assisted living in America while providing a unique opportunity for residents, their loved ones, staff, volunteers, and the surrounding communities to recognize the role of assisted living in caring for America’s seniors and individuals with disabilities. The annual observance encourages assisted living communities around the country to celebrate the individuals they serve while simultaneously educating members of the public about what assisted living truly looks like.
This year, The Fremont Senior Living is celebrating the 2022 theme of “joyful moments” from September 11th to September 17th by recognizing how each department plays a role in creating joy for our residents and staff members.
Being a leader of a senior living community allows me the opportunity to create a welcoming atmosphere that is full of life for our seniors. It is important as a leader that you take the time to truly listen to your residents, staff, and family members. The rewards in working with seniors is a gift of the heart.
Our team creates joyful moments on a regular basis in our community. We enjoy hosting events that include the staff and residents together enjoying life. It can be something as small as sitting outside while listening to music and enjoying the breeze or it could be as grand as our recent staff and resident carnival. We are lucky to have such incredibly caring staff who enjoy taking the time to not only help our residents, but to make them feel important on a regular basis.
We plan to make National Assisted Living Week special in our community. We are still working on the details, but it will be epic and focused on creating moments of joy. We have talked about a few different ideas and will be confirming them at this week’s department director meeting.
Follow us on Facebook to witness all our joyful moments, but especially from September 11th to September 17th as each department celebrates National Assisted Living Week and the many ways each team brings joy to our community staff and residents!
