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, VITALIA Active Adult Community® – North Royalton 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 automatically means you have two families, one at home and one at work. The scope of work and detail it takes to oversee the operations of a community is immense, but well worth it. The residents have lived their lives getting married, raising families, working, and experiencing war. They chose to continue to live their life in a vibrant, yet safe setting. It is 100% rewarding and an honor to be their leader.
Our team creates joyful moments on a regular basis in our community. We create a social calendar that allows us to capture photos of their fun and joyful moments. We sit and laugh with them, we listen, we bake, we walk the trails, we sing, joke, and tell stories. Utilizing the resident social profiles allows us to customize a calendar specific to those who live here.
We have no words for how much fun our resident Fred has in the community. He is all smiles, participates in all activities, enjoys the walking club, and is a sunshine to everyone’s day. You will find Fred in the middle of just about any activity as he states, “I enjoy everything they have to offer here.” Fred continues to comment on the beauty of VITALIA® and how it “perfectly feels like home.” Fred hasn’t found his favorite meal yet, but enjoys all that is on the menu.
We plan to make National Assisted Living Week special in our community. Our week will start with a celebration of Grandparents Day and a community-wide brunch. Each day the team leads will coordinate a specific plan outside of the regular calendar.
Follow us on Facebook to witness all of 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!
