This year, the National Assisted Living Week runs from September 9-15. This week is a chance for residents, their loved ones, staff, volunteers, and the community to recognize the role of assisted living in caring for America’s seniors.

Every year, the National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL) comes up with a theme for the week. This year’s theme is “Capture the Moment” which hopes to inspire residents to realize their dreams and seize the day. Assisted living staff can relive the tender moments of the residents in their care by referencing photographs or videos from the past.

This year’s theme showcases the importance of how assisted living caregivers support seniors with their everyday tasks, while also supporting their independence and honoring their individuality.

Consulate Health Care would like to recognize and thank our care center staff who treat their residents and co-workers as family each day.
