Kenton Pointe Assisted Living Commemorates National Assisted Living Week®
A weeklong celebration kicks off this Sunday, September 9, and Kenton Pointe Assisted Living 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 Kenton Pointe is honoring this year’s theme, “Capture the Moment.”
“Often, it’s the little, everyday moments in assisted living between staff and residents that deepen bonds, enrich lives and improve care,” said Janet White, Resident Director of Kenton Pointe. “Our community’s seniors are unique individuals who still have so much to give, and we are honored to serve them during this pivotal time in their lives.”
“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 combating this issue, and Kenton Pointe offers life-enriching social activities to help residents continue to lead fulfilling lives.
“We encourage members of the community to come visit Kenton Pointe Assisted Living during National Assisted Living Week,” said Janet White. “Engaging with seniors can be a rewarding experience, and our residents will greatly appreciate the additional companionship and conversation.”

ABout National Assisted Living Week
National Assisted Living Week was created by the National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL) in 1995 to recognize the role of assisted living in caring for America’s seniors and individuals with disabilities. The annual observance inspires assisted living communities around the country to offer a variety of events and activities to celebrate the individuals they serve, as well as to help educate members of the public about this distinct aspect of long term care.
