He urges all citizens to volunteer in an assisted living community, to visit friends and loved ones who reside at these communities, and to learn more about how assisted living services benefit the Parish of Ascension and the State of Louisiana.

National Assisted Living Week is to honor the contributions of assisted living communities for providing long term care to America’s seniors and individuals with disabilities.

This years theme is “Capture the Moment” which hopes to inspire assisted living residents to enjoy the present while celebrating the past. It is also meant to encourage assisted living staff to focus on the little, everyday interactions with residents to continue delivering high-quality, person-centered care.

Assisted living communities across the country organize activities and events which celebrate the deep connections between the dedicated staff members and residents. Mayor Barney D. Arceneaux signed a proclamation making September 9-15 National Assisted Living Week. He urges all citizens to volunteer in an assisted living community, to visit friends and loved ones who reside at these communities, and to learn more about how assisted living services benefit the Parish of Ascension and the State of Louisiana.
