Liberty Court to celebrate special week

National Assisted Living Week will take place Sept. 8-14 and will feature the theme "Homemade Happiness." We invite the community at large to join us in celebrating residents' lives and thanking volunteers, family members, staff, and others at one of our "Homemade Happiness" events. 

We will host an open house for prospective volunteers and the general public on Monday at Liberty Court Assisted Living, 124 Liberty Court, Dixon. "Homemade Happiness" celebrates the bond created by staff, residents, and families as they build warm, welcoming, and vibrant homes for residents. 

National Assisted Living Week was established in 1995 by the National Center for Assisted Living to provide a special opportunity to bring together residents, families, employees, volunteers, and the surrounding community to celebrate residents and the services provided by the staff within assisted living communities. Every year, the week-long celebration begins on Grandparents Day. 

"Homemade Happiness" events also help us to say thank you to our assisted living residents, many of whom have made significant contributions to our Dixon community as business people, civic leaders, firefighters, teachers, parents, and grandparents. 

To learn more about our open house, contact Diane Hawkins at 815-285-2000 or visit Join us and the more than 31,100 assisted living communities nationwide who are creating celebrations for all to enjoy.

Note to readers – Diane Hawkins is the executive director at Liberty Court Assisted Living.
