The National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL) recently announced "Homemade Happiness" as the theme for the 2013 National Assisted Living Week which will be celebrated from September 8-14 this year. According to the NCAL, the theme celebrates "the bond created by staff, residents and families as they build warm, welcoming and vibrant homes for residents."  Visit the NCAL website to learn more.

With this theme in mind, we would like to recognize the Abbington Assisted Living communities in Powell, Pickerington, and Upper Arlington as Senior Agenda's pick for National Assisted Living week.  Visit their website to learn more.  These are small, single story, inviting communities with all inclusive pricing and most importantly - kind and caring staffs. They were recently approved for the Medicaid-waiver program which means they are now in position to provide homes for those who are and are not able to private pay.  They also pride themselves on specially tailored wellness programs which include falls prevention programs and more.

We interviewed key members within the organization recently on Senior Agenda including the Founder, President and an Activities Director.  Click here to hear that interview.
