On September 12, preschoolers and kindergarteners joined the seniors at Spring Hills Somerset Assisted Living to listen to the story Mama Do You Love Me to celebrate National Assisted Living Week (NALW). This year’s NALW theme was Family is Forever. Mama Do You Love Me tells the story of a child testing the limits of her independence, and a mother who reassuringly proves that a parent’s love is unconditional and everlasting. The book is set in Alaska with an Inuit family and many animals who live in Alaska. After the story, everyone colored pictures that go along with the people and animals in the book and enjoy a snack. The children came from the local KinderCare.
About National Assisted Living Week:
NALW kicks off on Sunday, September 10, 2017 with Grandparents Day. If continues through Saturday, September 16, 2017. This year’s theme, Family is Forever, was inspired by a Maya Angelou quote: “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.” NALW was created by the National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL) in 1995 to recognize the role of assisted living in caring for America’s seniors and individuals with disabilities. The annual observance inspires assisted living communities around the country to offer a variety of events and activities to celebrate the individuals they serve, as well as to help educate members of the public about this distinct aspect of long term care.
