Charter Assisted Living honors National Assisted Living Week

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.-Bowling Green is looking back because this is a season of reflection for National Assisted Living Week.

City commissioners and members of the Bowling Green community gathered together to honor national assisted living week with a proclamations and a balloon release.

This celebration focuses on the value of people who work in assisted living and the people who live in assisted living.

Jim Britt, the senior executive director Charter Senior Living, says, “Our residents here are not forgotten, they are a very special segment of our society, and I’ve always thought they were a treasure trove of wisdom, love, and knowledge that can sometimes go unrecognized and unappreciated.”

More than 20 years ago national assisted living week was established, and many senior living facilities choose this week to recognize those who play a part in assisted living.
