Happy Assisted Living Week!
From the staff of Crossing Rivers Health Assisted Living
Happy Assisted Living Week! At Crossing Rivers Health Assisted Living, we've planned a week-long celebration in honor of this annual observance that provides a unique opportunity for residents, family members and friends, staff, volunteers and the community to recognize the role of assisted living in caring for seniors and individuals with disabilities.
The theme for this year’s celebration of National Assisted Living, Family is Forever, was inspired by a quote from poet Maya Angelou, ‘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.’
This is so true at Crossing Rivers Health Assisted Living. Our residents are truly our second family.
We kicked off Assisted Living Week yesterday - on Grandparents Day. We hosted a Friends & Family Potluck and invited those special people in our lives to join us for a delicious meal and toe-tapping musical entertainment. The River City Ruckus Band played old-time favorite tunes. We then cheered on Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers and celebrated their win over the Seattle Seahawks at Lambeau Field.
Other activities planned for the week include:
- Monday morning religious prayers
- Pampering with manicures and hand and chair massages
- A pet therapy visit from Wendy Smethurst and her dog, Beans
- Musical entertainment provided by Dan Hurley
- An outing to the Yellow River Dairy Goat Farm, apple treats and Culver’s frozen custard
- Matinee movie and popcorn
- Dollar Bingo with dollar bills and fall seasonal gifts on the prize cart (a resident favorite)
