Mid Coast Senior Health Commemorates National Assisted Living Week®

Mid Coast Senior Health joined tens of thousands of assisted living communities across the country in celebrating National Assisted Living Week®, Sunday, September 9 through Saturday, September 15.

"Often, it's the little, everyday moments in assisted living between staff and residents that deepen bonds, enrich lives and improve care," said Kim Watson, MS, SLP, MLNHA, Mid Coast Senior Health Administrator. "Our community's seniors are unique individuals who still have so much to give, and we are honored to care for them during this pivotal time in their lives."

This year's theme, Capture the Moment, helped to inspire assisted living residents to enjoy the present while still celebrating the past. Many adults 65 and older battle isolation and loneliness as they age, which can impact their mental, emotional, and physical health. Community engagement may be the key to combatting this issue, and Mid Coast Senior Health offers life-enriching social activities to help residents continue to lead fulfilling lives.

Mid Coast Senior Health Car HopActivities offered last week at Mid Coast Senior Health included a remembrance event, a picnic outing, musical entertainment, photo booth, and more. The week's signature event, Remember the Moment: Classic Car Hop, took place on Thursday, September 13. During the event, Mid Coast Senior Health hosted various local classic car clubs, staff dressed in 1950s attire, and families and community members joined residents for a 1950s themed dinner.

"We are grateful for the families and community members who joined us during National Assisted Living Week," said Watson. "Engaging with seniors can be a rewarding experience, and our residents greatly appreciate the additional companionship and conversation."
