To The Daily Sun,
National Assisted Living Week (NALW) will take place Sept. 8 – 14, 2013 and will feature the theme "Homemade Happiness." The Golden View Community invites you — the community at large — to join us in celebrating residents' lives and thanking volunteers, family members, staff and others at one of our "Homemade Happiness" events.
We will host an open house for prospective volunteers and the general public on Tuesday September 10 at 2:30 p.m. at The Inn at Golden View, Assisted Living. We are featuring a "Just Desserts" social. The Inn invites the public to join us for an all-you-can-eat spectacular feast of homemade desserts. We will be offering tours of the Golden View campus. Or join us on Friday 13th at 1 p.m. as we welcome a representative from The Office of Veterans Services to present the most up-to-date information on VA Benefits. Homemade Happiness celebrates the bond created by staff, residents and families as they build warm, welcoming, and vibrant homes for residents.
NALW was established in 1995 by the National Center for Assisted Living to provide a special opportunity to bring together residents, families, employees, volunteers, and the surrounding community to celebrate residents and the services provided by the staff within assisted living communities. Every year, the week long celebration begins on Grandparent's Day.
"Homemade Happiness" events also help us to say "thank you" to our assisted living residents, many of whom have made significant contributions to our community as business people, civic leaders, firefighters, teachers, parents, and grandparents.
