“Traditions of the Heart” is the theme of this year’s National Assisted Living Week, and Seasons at The Woodview is joining other facilities throughout the nation to celebrate. The week provides a unique opportunity to pay tribute to the personal connection that unites residents, caregivers, volunteers, families and friends.

“Traditions are a part of each individual’s history,” states Activity Coordinator Dawn Tuck. “Some are common, with small variations, some are from certain ethnic backgrounds and some are created by accident. We all have them and they have influenced not only who we have become, but who are family has become.”

Seasons at the Woodview is home to eighteen residents with Alzheimer’s disease or related memory disorders.

“With Alzheimer’s disease,” Tuck states, “residents frequently remember the past much more readily that the present, so this week we plan on stepping back in time to re-create some of those magical moments from the past. We invite the community to join us for any of our activities.”

“The week traditionally kicks-off on Grandparents Day, which we celebrated Sunday at a social with Fork Brotherhood. The remainder of the week is full.”

The week’s events include: Name that Tune on Monday at 10:30 and a marathon of board games at 2:30 p.m. Tuesday at 2 p.m. brings that favorite of so many - Bingo. Wednesday, September 16 a devotion service with Rev. Crenshaw will be held at 10:30 a.m. and at 2 p.m. residents will reminisce about old fashions. Thursday includes a recipe swap at 10:30 a.m. and a quilt show at 2 p.m. On Friday there will be a baby shower at 10:30 a.m. and at 2 p.m., residents will engage in some “sweet memories.” The week concludes on Saturday with a “Beans and Greens” celebration at 5:30 p.m.

National Assisted Living Week was established in 1995 to provide an opportunity to bring together residents, families, staff, volunteers and the community to celebrate the services provided within assisted living facilities.
