Grand Rapids Seniors Community Hosts National Assisted Living Week Car Show

The National Center for Assisted Living, or NCAL, encourages living centers to hold community events to celebrate, which Majestic Pines Senior Living Community in Grand Rapids did with a food truck and car show on Wednesday.

Each year the week has a recurring theme, this year being “Joyful Moments”. The theme was chosen to create meaningful and enriching memories for those involved.

“Happy times are what we try to do every day at Majestic Pines, not just for a week,” explained Lynn Wirtanen, Community Coordinator for Majestic Pines Senior Living Community, “We try to create those happy times for our residents. who live here, whether it’s memory care, independent living or assisted living, we want it to be a happy and fun place.

The past two years have been difficult for healthcare workers and assisted living facilities due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is why the large attendance at the event was so impactful to see.

“This is probably the biggest event we’ve had since March 2020,” said Nichole Houg, General Manager of Majestic Pines Senior Living Community, “It feels good to welcome the community back to our building.”
