The Courtyard Assisted Living Hosts Senator Jim Nielsen During Assisted Living Week

While Assisted Living Week was over a month ago, we are still enjoying hearing about the wonderful events our members held. Today, we’re taking a look back at details from state Senator Jim Nielsen’s (R-Roseville) visit to The Courtyard Assisted Living, an Adventist Health/Rideout community.

Carol Pickard, Director of Assisted Living Services for The Courtyard, shares, “We hosted Senator Jim Nielsen on Friday the 14th. The Senator gave a talk to the residents about current issues and then opened it up to them for questions. He was here nearly an hour.” She adds that refreshments were served afterwards and the event was enjoyed by all in attendance.
