​Sunday, September 11 - Saturday, September 17, 2016

Got ideas? Tell us:


 Keep the Spirit of NALW Alive


​The 2016 theme will be announced early in the year, but you can still celebrate NALW all year long!

  • Pick a date each quarter to hold a special event for a different group of individuals that make your community the best it can be.
  • Once month you can highlight residents, then next your staff, volunteers, and families. 
  • Create a community newsletter that celebrates all the wonderful things happening each and every day.
  • Share ways your community is improving lives on Facebook or Twitter.

The Planning Guide and Product Catalog for National Assisted Living Week will be released in the summer and will contain a variety of ideas for NALW 2016.


 NALW 2015: "Nourishing Life"


NALW 4 color logo 2015.jpg
The 2015 National Assisted Living Week® (NALW) theme – suggested by you – is “Nourishing Life: Mind, Body, Spirit.”

This theme celebrates the countless ways assisted living caregivers nurture the whole resident. Communities across the country work each and every day to ensure that the lives of their residents are fully nourished in each and every way. Conversely, residents nourish the lives of team members and volunteers by, with the support of loved ones, sharing their inspiring lives.
