It’s National Assisted Living Week and we’re excited to celebrate all of our incredible Spring Arbor team members and our wonderful residents and their loved ones! Established by the National Center for Assisted Living more than two decades ago, National Assisted Living Week provides a special opportunity to recognize the important role of assisted living in America. We couldn’t agree more!
This year’s theme is “Family is Forever” and was inspired by poet Maya Angelou, who wrote: “Family isn’t always blood, it’s the people in your life who want you in theirs: the ones who accept you for who you are, the ones who would do anything to see you smile and who love you no matter what.”
We believe in the power of family and that family includes the people who care for us. That’s why our Spring Arbor team members focus on personalized and compassionate care. Those team members become an extension of our residents’ families. Everyone has the right to live, love and discover enjoyment in each day, regardless of the abilities that have been lost to dementia. Everything we do is built around this understanding, from daily activities to specialized art and music programs to the healthy and delicious food served. After all, HHHunt is guided by the philosophy that it’s how you live that matters.
So, how can you celebrate National Assisted Living Week? It’s easy! We encourage you to thank someone you know who cares for seniors. A simple message of kindness – whether in person, on the phone, with a card or even in a text message – can be powerful. We are so thankful for the dedicated and caring team members at our Spring Arbor communities in Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina. Thank you for all you do!
