Residents Create “Joyful Moments” Around the World  

NORTH BETHESDA, Md., Sept. 21, 2022 – Thanks to creative imagination and fun-filled activity planning, residents of The Terraces at Tuckerman Lane “set sail” for a fun-filled cruise around the world in celebration of National Assisted Living Week® in September. 

By all accounts, the exciting activities exceeded expectations with a travel-themed journey, offering participants the chance to create “Joyful Moments,” according to Margaret Hubbard, LNHA, executive director of The Terraces at Tuckerman Lane. “The Assisted Living Week celebration provided us with a way of celebrating our residents with a variety of different experiences for them to enjoy.”

The National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL) established National Assisted Living Week in 1995, offering opportunities for residents and their loved ones, center staff and volunteers to recognize and celebrate the importance of assisted living care in the community for seniors and individuals with disabilities. The theme of this year’s celebration, “Joyful Moments,” allowed centers to get creative in developing unique and fun ways to further deepen the sense of community for residents at The Terraces at Tuckerman Lane. 

With stops in South America on Monday, Caribbean Islands on Tuesday, China on Wednesday and Africa on Thursday, residents woke up to a new virtual “cruise port” every day. They were treated to guided tours, food and signature drinks and plenty of opportunities to get moving including Spin Fit (a tour of the countries) and Samba Fitness. The adventure concluded with a local celebration of The Terraces at Tuckerman Lane’s “home port” on Friday.  

There were smiles all around as participants enjoyed all the daily activities. Many residents at The Terraces at Tuckerman Lane said they were delighted with the opportunity to experience so many countries in one week, Hubbard added. 

Additionally, segments of OneVoice, a resident-driven podcast program, were featured throughout the week with stories themed, of course, with “Joyful Moments.”  

“This generation has given us so much and Assisted Living Week is a time to celebrate them,” Hubbard said. “We want our residents to feel special and experience new places they may have never been.”
