LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION memorializing Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to
proclaim September 11-17, 2016, as Assisted Living Week in the State of
New York

WHEREAS, Residents of adult care and assisted living communities
contribute their wisdom, life experiences and knowledge to the active
roles they hold in their communities; their past contributions continue
to be a vital part of our State's rich history; and their future
contributions and participation deepens the community life and activity;
and
WHEREAS, This Legislative Body is justly proud to memorialize Governor
Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim September 11-17, 2016, as Assisted Living
Week in the State of New York, in conjunction with the observance of
National Assisted Living Week; and
WHEREAS, The number of elderly and disabled New Yorkers, and Ameri-
cans, is increasing; and
WHEREAS, The National Center for Assisted Living proudly created
National Assisted Living Week, and together with its affiliate, the New
York State Center for Assisted Living, is dedicated to promoting high
quality, principle-driven adult care and assisted living services with
an everlasting commitment to excellence, innovation, and the advancement
of person-centered care; and
WHEREAS, The theme of the 2016 National Assisted Living Week is "Keep
Connected" which recognizes the increasing opportunity technology can
offer to enhance the care and overall experience in assisted living
communities, and acknowledges the myriad of ways assisted living staff
and supporting business partners are revolutionizing the care provided
in these communities through innovations in technology; assisted living
can further this focus by embracing tools that fit the needs and prefer-
ences of the individuals they serve but also reminds us that sometimes
the best relationships are formed face to face; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
memorialize Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim September 11-17, 2016
as Assisted Living Week in the State of New York, and to encourage all
citizens, both young and old, to volunteer and visit friends, family and
loved ones who reside in adult care/assisted living communities, and to
learn more about this vital segment in the spectrum of care and how it
benefits our State; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to The Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo, Governor of the State of New
York.
