Finding the spark in assisted living

Letter to the Editor

To the Editor, 

Learning that a loved one needs long-term care is difficult. We wish they could live at home forever, but for some, moving to an assisted living community may be the best option to ensure their safety and wellbeing. That doesn’t mean life is over. 

At Pennington Square Assisted Living, we not only help our assisted living tenants with managing their health and daily tasks, but we also provide many life-enrichment programs that engage residents holistically. It’s about getting to know each tenant so we can cater to their interests and help them stay active and happy. 

This week we celebrate National Assisted Living Week and its theme “A Spark of Creativity.” It reminds us that creativity is good for the mind, body and spirit – especially among older adults. 

No matter our age, disability or diagnosis, each of us has the capacity to create, and therefore, live. The staff at Pennington Square are honored to help our tenants live life to its fullest every day. They are, after all, the spark that drives us to do this work. And we are committed to getting creative as well by finding new, innovative ways to continuously improve the care and services we provide.
