Deadline for Statewide Project Submissions

Each community will be asked to compile and submit photos of your residents as they participate in hobbies and events that make them happy. Be sure to describe the activities, take lots of pictures of residents as they participate, and ask them for quotes about the enjoyment they get while doing something they love. AALC will display all the entries at the State Capitol to showcase how Supportive Living communities continue to provide a positive, fulfilling and happy environment for today’s seniors and individuals with disabilities.

Together, we can raise awareness of the Supportive Living program and the reasons residents firmly believe, “Happiness is Ageless!”

Creating Your Happiness is Ageless Overview 
AALC will select the most creative “Happiness is Ageless” overview display in the halls of the State Capitol in April to showcase how our Supportive Living communities are creating healthy and happy living environments for residents.
