Celebrate National Assisted Living Week

To the Editor:

National Assisted Living Week® (NALW) will take place Sept. 9 – 15 and will feature the theme “Art for the Ages.” We invite you — the community at large — to join us in celebrating residents’ lives and thanking volunteers, family members, staff and others at one of our “Art for the Ages” events.

We will host a community picnic for prospective volunteers and the general public Sunday, Sept. 9, at Riverside Assisted Living in Royalton. The “Art for the Ages” is about celebrating creativity and appreciation of all forms of art and how art enhances everyone’s lives.

NALW was established in 1995 by the National Center for Assisted Living to provide a special opportunity to bring together residents, families, employees, volunteers and the surrounding community to celebrate residents and the services provided by the staff within assisted living communities. Every year, the week- long celebration begins on Grandparent’s Day.

The “Art for the Ages” events help us to say “thank you” to our assisted living residents, many of whom have made significant contributions to Royalton as business people, civic leaders, firefighters, teachers, parents and grandparents.

To learn more, contact Denise Karst, manager at (320) 584-6484. Join us and the more than 31,100 assisted living communities nationwide who are creating celebrations for all to enjoy.  — Denise Karst, Royalton
