The National Assisted Living Week ® (NALW) Planning Guide and Product Catalog is now available to download at www.NALW.org. This year’s Planning Guide and Product catalog contains innovative activity ideas and exciting products to highlight this year’s theme, “Keep Connected” recognizing the increasing opportunity technology can offer to enhance the care and overall experience in assisted living communities.
Beginning on Grandparents Day, September 11, and extending throughout that week until the 17, National Assisted Living Week® will be celebrated in assisted living communities across the country. The 2016 theme, “Keep Connected,” encourages assisted living communities to support opportunities for residents to use the latest communication tools to engage with the world around them. The theme aims to help overcome the myth that seniors are not interested in using or do not have the ability to learn new technologies.
Download the NALW Planning Guide and Product Catalog and begin planning ways to nourish the minds, bodies and spirits of residents, staff and volunteers. As you plan your events for the week, don’t forget to share your plans with your local media and “like” the National Assisted Living Week® Facebook page!
