Assisted Living Week—which starts on Grandparents Day each year—is the perfect time for communities across the country to raise awareness of Assisted Living services and honor members of their community. This year, Assisted Living communities throughout California marked the past, present, and future by taking a look back at happy memories, celebrating what makes their residents unique, and getting excited for the future of their communities.

 

During Assisted Living Week earlier this month, residents of The Kensington Sierra Madre enjoyed an evening of television nostalgia and music with Johnny Crawford, best known as one of the original Mouseketeers and for his role as Mark McCain in The Rifleman.

According to Steve Sciurba, Director of Community Outreach for The Kensington Sierra Madre, Crawford entertained the crowd with his singing talent and his impressive rope tricks. Residents also enjoyed refreshments and hors d’oeuvres supplied by the community. It was a festive, memorable night for all.

According to Sciurba, Crawford has been the band leader of a vintage dance orchestra since 1992.

Thank you to the Assisted Living providers across the state who offer a valuable service to California’s seniors and make their lives better every day. How did you celebrate Assisted Living Week in your community?
