National Assisted Living Week Northwesterly Assisted Living: “Forever Proud”

In observance of National Assisted Living Week®, September 11 to 17, Northwesterly Assisted Living will host a series of events developed as a special opportunity to bring together residents, families, employees, volunteers and the surrounding community to celebrate “Forever Proud.”

“‘Forever Proud,' a patriotic theme, was chosen because the first day of National Assisted Living Week begins on the 10th anniversary of 9/11. While we remember the fallen, we also recognize the pride we feel as American citizens and in our community. Forever Proud also addresses one’s pride in work done well, family and friends, or a skill mastered. Feeling proud about our citizenship, community participation, friends and families is a universal feeling” said Ann Sevenich, Executive Director, Northwesterly Assisted Living. “This weeklong celebration is a demonstration of the commitment assisted living professionals feel when providing care and services to residents in their communities.”

Some of the week’s special events for the residents of Northwesterly include: Belgian Waffle Breakfast; Cookies & Card Players Social; trip to Mitchell’s Ice Cream; Edgewater Park Swing Band Concert; Special lunch featuring our new Chef Susan Hunter.
