NEWPORT BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 7, 2012) - Vintage Senior Living announced today that its family of retirement communities is participating in the National Center for Assisted Living's (NCAL) annual National Assisted Living Week (NALW), Sept. 9 to 15. To kick off the week, Vintage Golden Gate will host an Annual Art Exhibit to bring together residents, families, employees, volunteers and surrounding communities. Residents at each of the 24 Vintage communities are offered artistic programs throughout the year that celebrates this year's NALW theme, 'Art for the Ages.' NCAL chose the theme to appreciate creativity and recognize all forms of art and how it enhances lives.
"'Art for the Ages' celebrates the artist in everyone. Whether it's a resident's painting or a local school choir, art inspires and shapes people's lives," said Deanna Cason, Vice President, Vintage Senior Living. "This weeklong celebration is a demonstration of Vintage Senior Living's commitment to provide the best care and services to residents in each of our communities."
As one of the many programs offered to support resident creativity, each year Vintage Senior Living hosts a winter art program in its communities across California and Washington. The friendly competition encourages seniors to submit a self-made piece of art representing winter or the holidays. The winner's artwork is featured as the Vintage Senior Living company holiday card.
"The 'Art for the Ages' events help us to say 'thank you' to our assisted living residents and employees, many of whom have made incredible contributions to their communities and the world," said Cason.
NALW was established in 1995 by NCAL to provide a special time for residents, families, employees and friends to celebrate residents and the services provided by the staff within assisted living communities.
