Rochester, N.Y. – Each year the celebration of National Assisted Living Week (NALW) begins on grandparents day, so this year it takes place the week of September 8 – 14th with the theme, “Homemade Happiness.” More than 31,000 assisted living communities nationwide will be celebrating. Here at Wolk Manor, we are celebrating the entire month of September and we invite the community to join us for some of our special events.
NALW was established in 1995 by the National Center for Assisted Living to provide an opportunity to bring together assisted living residents and their families, employees, volunteers, and the surrounding community to thank them for the contributions they have made to our town. Many of our residents are former business owners, civic leaders, teachers, members of our armed forces, and other service providers who have made a significant contribution to our community, and we want to thank them. We also want to celebrate and thank the staff that provides care and services to our Wolk Manor residents, and the civic organizations that provide very necessary and valuable services to us, such as the volunteer fire department, EMTs, and health care providers, just to name a few.
Homemade Happiness events at Wolk Manor during September include:
9/5 & 9/12 – Resident art project, “Happiness in Assisted Living”
9/12 – Happiness Poem Writing
9/18 – Happiness Art Show (families, residents, staff)
9/19 – Spelling Bee
9/23 – Happiness Heroes Brunch for volunteers, civic organizations
9/23 – Open House for the public
9/25 – Wolk Manor staff lunch
9/26 – “Night Under the Stars” concert for residents & families
