National Assisted Living Week
National Center for Assisted Living established National Assisted Living Week® (NALW) in 1995 as a way to promote assisted living to the public. It provides a unique opportunity for residents, families, staff, volunteers, and the surrounding community to come together to celebrate and enjoy a variety of events that show the residents how much we care for and love them.
This Year’s Theme: Forever Proud
Because this year’s National Assisted Living Week® begins on the 10 year anniversary of 9/11, it was important for the theme to reflect the pride we feel as citizens and active members of the community. The events of 9/11 were tragic, but they also brought our country together. Countrymen helping countrymen and a spirit of rebuilding helped to foster a renewed sense of national pride for many. But it is not just national pride that “Forever Proud” addresses. Pride in a life of work done well. Pride in an achievement that will outlive its creator. Pride in a local community or sports team. Pride in family and friends. Pride in a skill mastered or being developed. This is a time to celebrate what has been and will be accomplished. A proud moment or event is something we never forget. This is an opportunity to share these moments with the community and those we love. Assisted Living communities around the country will be celebrating, remembering, and showing their pride together.
Join us with your friends and families to enjoy the many special events planned. We always have room for one more guest. We too are Forever Proud!
