"NCAL established National Assisted Living Week® in 1995 as a way to promote assisted living to the public. It provides a unique opportunity for residents, families, staff, volunteers and the surrounding community to come together to celebrate and enjoy a variety of events that show the residents how much we care for and love them. The 2011 celebration will be held Sept.11-17."
