Next #ProviderChats Kicks of NALW on Monday, September 14

It’s a decision that one typically doesn’t contemplate until the situation is upon them: whether or not to place a loved one into assisted living.

Assisted living communities serve individuals who need help with every day activities and some health care services but do not require 24-hour skilled nursing care services for extended periods of time. These communities offer a unique mix of companionship, independence, privacy, and security in a home-like setting. The philosophy of assisted living is built on the concept of delivering person-centered care and services to each individual resident.

September 13-19, 2015, is National Assisted Living Week (#NALW). This year’s theme is “Nourishing Life: Mind, Body, Spirit.” The theme celebrates the countless ways assisted living caregivers nurture the whole resident. Communities across the country work each and every day to ensure that the lives of their residents are fully nourished in each and every way. Conversely, residents nourish the lives of team members and volunteers by, with the support of loved ones, sharing their inspiring lives.

Join #ProviderChats Monday, Sept. 14, from 1-2 p.m., for another terrific discussion. Experts from Brookdale Senior Living and Good Samaritan will help friends and families make sure they get the most from assisted living in mind, body, and spirit.
