Washington, D.C. –The National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL) today announced the theme, “Filling Life with Love,” for their 2008 National Assisted Living Week, to be held September 7 – 13, 2008.
National Assisted Living Week celebrates the exceptional involvement of families, providers, volunteers, and individuals from the local community who foster a truly caring spirit. The week also spotlights the crucial role assisted living facilities play in helping our nation’s elderly to live as independently as possible while enjoying a meaningful quality of life.
David Kyllo, Executive Director of NCAL stated, “This year’s theme of “Filling life With Love” emphasizes the need for all those connected to an assisted living facility – whether it be staff, residents, family members, or volunteers – to recognize and celebrate the lives of those they touch everyday.”
NCAL will produce a National Assisted Living Week program guide and product catalog that will be mailed to all members in June to aid them in their efforts to fill the lives of their staff and residents with love. As National Assisted Living Week nears, please check its website, www.nalw.org, will provide more information and ideas of how to fill lives with love.
