Celebrating National Assisted Living Week 2017

We just got through with another National Assisted Living week. This year the theme was “Families are Forever” and that is so true. Here at Carrington Court we are all one big family.

“Family isn’t always blood, it’s the people in your life who want you in theirs: the ones who accept you for who you are, the ones who would do anything to see you smile and who love you no matter what.”- Maya Angelou

First we kicked things off with a wonderful trip to the State Fair!

One day we made collages of pictures from magazines that brought back great family memories, another day we made family trees, and we also made houses from paper sacks, Home Sweet Home!
