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® – Rockside 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 means I have the opportunity to bring enjoyment and memorable moments to someone’s life. I am leading a team of people that creates a fun and energetic community where elders call home.
Our team creates joyful moments on a regular basis in your community. Activities are planned and designed to give opportunities for our residents that enhance their everyday lives through exploration, education, and health. The culinary department creates unique and enjoyable dishes. We also create large social gatherings for residents to attend, where they can socialize, dance, and enjoy themselves. Our wellness team enhances residents’ everyday lives through care, engagement, and communication.
Resident Wilma Szomoru says engaging in activities brings her the most joy living at VITALIA Active Adult Community® – Rockside. She likes being able to plan her day around what activities she and her friends want to attend. Her favorite memories (so far) of her time spent at VITALIA® – Rockside is, “Meeting Loretta and dancing the polka in the dining room.”
We plan to make National Assisted Living Week special in our community by celebrating our residents in Assisted Living all week with activities, parties led by culinary, and by creating a fun and high-energy environment.
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!
