September 13-19, 2015 is National Assisted Living Week. Across the United States, hundreds of assisted living communities will come together this week to celebrate with a variety of events to celebrate the role of assisted living communities in the lives of Senior Adults. The theme for this year’s events is “Nourishing Life: Mind, Body and Spirit”. The focus of activities this year is to demonstrate how assisted living communities nourish the lives of the senior adults who call them home.
At Great Oaks Management, several activities will bring families, friends, volunteers, staff and our senior adults together to celebrate. Sunday, September 13th is National Grandparents Day and each of our communities will celebrate with a Grandparents Day Brunch. Grandparents nourish the Spirit of their grandchildren and family. Join our communities on Sunday to share the Spirit of Grandparents.
On Wednesday, September 16th, Great Oaks Management communities will take a mid-week break to celebrate how our communities nourish the body of our residents with a Milkshake Social. Come join in the fun as we “shake things up” and share a flavorful milkshake and a little dance music with our residents.
Finally on Friday, September 18th, we will wrap up with week with a Family Game Night at our communities. Social interaction is fun, but it also helps build strong brains and nourishes the mind of our residents and supports our families. Come join in the fun and “tease your brain” with a night of family fun at our communities.
Assisted Living Communities are places where senior adults grow and flourish in a safe and nurturing atmosphere. Drop in one of our communities this week and see what all the excitement is about.
