Sept 13 – Sept 19th 2009 is National Assisted Living Week.
“This year’s theme, ‘Traditions of the Heart’ pays tribute to the
personal connection that caregivers, relatives, and volunteers have
with nearly 1 million people residing in more than 38,000 assisted
living and residential care communities nationwide,” said David Kyllo, The National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL)’s executive director.
NCAL established National assisted living Week in 1995 to
provide a unique opportunity to bring together residents, families,
employees, volunteers, and the surrounding community to celebrate
residents and the services provided within assisted living residences.
