As a society with a burgeoning aging population, there are many reasons to celebrate National Assisted Living Week September 12-18, 2010. It wasn’t that long ago that seniors who needed care had fewer options. Most either went straight into a nursing home or remained at home. Today’s seniors are expecting more, and the senior housing industry has responded by creating better and more diverse living options. Aegis Living, a national leader in senior living and assisted living communities, is helping revolutionize senior living by managing communities for all stages of life, including assisted living and memory care.
The National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL) is sponsoring National Assisted Living Week. The theme this year is ‘Living Life,’ which celebrates assisted living communities around the country who are offering their residents the environment and tools they need to achieve their goals.
"At Aegis Living, we know how important it is to provide the activities and experiences that fulfill our residents’ passions. We all want to live life to the fullest and pursue happiness, no matter what our age," said Dwayne Clark, chairman and CEO of Aegis Living.
