“As an Activity Professional, you are part of a vitally important profession that helps people live a life that is full of fun and meaningful activities. The holistic and person-directed approach to caring for our elders you provide is a sight to behold.

You are the heart and spirit of your facilities. We encourage you to take a minute to acknowledge the great work you do and give yourself and your staff the credit deserved!

Now as never before, attention is being directed concerning care of our elder and disabled citizens and greater attention also is directed  to those who provide hands-on-care. National Activity Professionals Week (NAPW)  provides a timely opportunity to foster and showcase the wonderful things that Activity Professionals create.

NAP Week is January 23-27, 2023. The NAPW theme and the theme of the Annual NAAP Conference is “Adventure Awaits”.”  Check out all the activities, ideas and information on the NAAP website.

From my many years of personal experience, activity professionals are awesome individuals – indeed the heart and spirit of every senior community.  They provide activities that encourage our residents to engage (re-engage as well) in life and adventures within our communities – immediate and outside our 4 walls for adventures, as this year’s theme represents.  These professionals awaken the spirit of residents, staff and visitors every day.  Their enthusiasm and dedication is inspiring and contagious – the best kind of contagious!

Thank you for all you do – we so appreciate you!!
