National Assisted Living Week Theme Announced for 2013 – Homemade Happiness

The National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL) has announced that a logo for the 2013 National Assisted Living Week theme (NALW), Homemade Happiness is now available for download at www.nalw.org.

Homemade Happiness encompasses the connection that occurs in communities between the staff, residents, and families as they build warm, welcoming, and vibrant homes.  Celebrating the commitment of staff and friendships that form between residents, Homemade Happiness will be a time to recognize the efforts, small and large, of every individual in a community that turns a residence into a home for countless assisted living residents.  

NALW will be held September 8 - 14, 2013.  In the coming months, NCAL will issue a planning guide and product catalog centered on Homemade Happiness.  The planning guide will contain ideas that tie into the theme which help providers create their celebration events.  As NALW approaches visit NALW.org for updated information and resources.
