National Assisted Living Week September 12-18

The senior living community has overcome immense challenges during the past year. The arrival of this year’s National Assisted Living Week® (NALW), September 12 – 18, 2021, provides an opportunity to celebrate assisted living, and all of those who contribute to the assisted living industry.

What to Know About National Assisted Living Week

The National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL) founded the first National Assisted Living Week in 1995. Since then, this special week has been observed annually. Assisted living communities all over the country celebrate the residents they serve, and they participate in this special event with activities and celebrations of their choice.

While this week provides an opportunity to celebrate the country’s seniors and individuals with disabilities, it also provides a valuable opportunity to spread public awareness about assisted living. According to the NCAL, “National Assisted Living Week is a wonderful opportunity to honor the individuals who reside, work, and volunteer in these communities. It also gives the general public the opportunity to learn more about this sector of long term care.”

The NCAL has created a NALW planning guide with ideas for potential activities and media coverage. You can also download the press and media packet of time-saving templates.

Many of us know someone who has either worked or resided in an assisted living environment.  Celebrating National Assisted Living Week gives us a chance to recognize all of the staff, volunteers, and communities that play a vital role in making these facilities a success.
