Happy National Assisted Living Week! This year’s theme is Joyful Moments. I love this focus, as it perfectly encapsulates the heart of senior living. We’re in the business of caring – and in spreading joy to our fellow teammates and dear residents.
Where I find joy
I found joy in senior living from my first experience as a caregiver. I got to know my residents on such a unique, intimate level – in a way you can’t get in any other industry.
I fell in love with resident stories, with their histories and passions. Through my career I found pride in mine and my team’s accomplishments – from our quality awards from AHCA/NCAL to deficiency-free state surveys to team members earning awards and recognition at the annual OHCA convention.
My calling is senior living, and I’m honored to unite with a team of people equality passionate and equally dedicated to living our mission “to enhance the life of every person we serve” and each of our seven core values.
To our incredible assisted living team members, thank you for pouring your heart into these residents. Thank you for showing up day after day and providing the high level of quality care our residents deserve. We truly wouldn’t be the organization we are without you.
To our dear residents, thank you for trusting us. Thank you for choosing Arete Living as your home. We’re honored to serve you and help enhance your life.
To our family members, thank you for trusting us with your loved one’s care. When you choose Arete Living, you and your loved one become part of our community. We’re thrilled to have you – thank you for your trust and support.
