Courtyard Terrace Assisted Living Week 2015

COURTYARD TERRACE ASSISTED LIVING WEEK 2015 – “NOURISHING LIFE, MIND, BODY AND SPIRIT”

In observance of National Assisted Living Week, September 13-19, Courtyard Terrace Assisted Living in Hebron, Nebraska is hosting a series of events developed as a special opportunity to bring together residents, families, employees, volunteers and the surrounding community to celebrate “Nourishing Life, Mind, Body and Spirit”.

This theme celebrates the countless ways assisted living caregivers nurture the whole resident. Communities across the country work each and every day to ensure that the lives of their residents are fully nourished in each and every way. Conversely, residents nourish the lives of team members and volunteers by, with the support of loved ones, sharing their inspiring lives.  There is a true bond built between residents and their families, staff, friends, and volunteers that makes assisted living community a home for them.

“The ability to care for our elders is an awesome responsibility that Blue Valley Lutheran Homes does not take for granted,” said Nancy Fangmeier, Activities Director at Courtyard Terrace.  “This celebration recognizes the bonds built between residents and the assisted living professionals who are committed to providing person-centered care and services.”

Courtyard Terrace is kicking off the week with a special presentation by Richard Schmidt, “The Singing Cowboy” on Sunday, September 13th at 2:00 pm.  This special musical presentation is open to the public and free for all.  Please join us for this wonderful musical experience!

Just a few of our special events throughout the week celebrating “Nourishing Life, Mind, Body and Spirit” include a Fleece Blanket Project, Cindy Chinn and her Theremin, a sing along with Janelle Bruning and a ceramics demonstration with Lucky Stradley.  The week will end with a special Tailgate Party and watching the Huskers football game against Miami.

National Assisted Living Week is an annual event sponsored by the National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL) and Nebraska Assisted Living Association (NALA).  Established by NCAL in 1995, National Assisted Living Week provides a unique opportunity for residents, families, staff, volunteers, and the surrounding community to come together to share with our residents a variety of events and activities that show them how much we care for them.

Courtyard Terrace Assisted Living is a 41-unit assisted living community located in Hebron, Nebraska.  For more information on National Assisted Living Week, visit www.nalw.org or contact Blue Valley Lutheran Homes – Courtyard Terrace at 402-768-3900.  Please stop by and visit us!
