National Assisted Living Week Begins Sunday

A week long celebration kicks off this Sunday, September 9, and Maple Glen Senior Living Community in Shelton is joining tens of thousands of assisted living communities across the country for the festivities. National Assisted Living Week® continues through Saturday, September 15, and Mason County is honoring this year’s theme, “Capture the Moment.”

Both the Mason County Commission and the Shelton City Council have proclaimed the week National Assisted Living Week.

“Capture the Moment” hopes 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 Mason County offers life-enriching social activities to help residents continue to lead fulfilling lives.

Such activities will be offered this week at Maple Glen and include:

  • Sunday brunch to celebrate grandparents day from 10:30 AM to 1 PM.
  • Monday’s theme is the 1950’s.
  • Tuesday is Western Day with line dancing at 11 AM and at 1 PM the Mason County Historical Society’s Kristin Fabry will make a presentation on logging.
  • Wednesday is Hawaiian Day and the Shelton Mason County Journal’s John Lester will be talking about the history of newspaper production at 1:30.
  • Thursday’s theme is South of the Border and at 11 AM, the Mason County Commission and the Shelton City Council will be proclaiming the week National Assisted Living Week.
  • The fun wraps up with Friday’s Italian Day and the history of the Mason County Forest Festival.
