A weeklong celebration kicked off this Sunday, Sept. 9, and Kenton Pointe Assisted Living is joining tens of thousands of assisted living communities across the country for the festivities.
National Assisted Living Week® continues through Saturday, Sept. 15, and Kenton Pointe is honoring this year’s theme, “Capture the Moment.”
“Often, it’s the little, everyday moments in assisted living between staff and residents that deepen bonds, enrich lives and improve care,” said Mary Anna Best, activities director of Kenton Pointe. “Our community’s seniors are unique individuals who still have so much to give, and we are honored to serve them during this pivotal time in their lives.”
“Capture the Moment” hopes to inspire assisted living residents to enjoy the present while still celebrating the past. Many adults 65 and older battle isolation and loneliness as they age, which can impact their mental, emotional and physical health. Community engagement may be the key to combatting this issue, and Kenton Pointe offers life-enriching social activities to help residents continue to lead fulfilling lives. Such activities will be offered this week at Kenton Pointe and include:
— VA seminar with Chris Arkenau on Sept. 14 at 10 a.m. Chris will discuss the aid and attendance benefit for veterans and their widows, which could help pay for assisted living
— Cruise In on Sept. 15, 5-8 p.m.
“We encourage members of the community to come visit Kenton Pointe Assisted Living Community during National Assisted Living Week,” said Best, “We will have fun activities throughout the week and would love to have the community join us for the scheduled activities or just stop by to tour the facility and have some fun with our residents. Engaging with seniors can be a rewarding experience, and our residents will greatly appreciate the additional companionship and conversation.”
