Hopkinton, Massachusetts–In observance of National Assisted Living Week®, September 7 to 13, Golden Pond will host a series of events developed as a special opportunity to bring together residents, families, employees, volunteers and the surrounding community to celebrate “Magic of Music.”

The “Magic of Music” celebrates the role music plays in the daily lives of assisted living residents. The theme also celebrates the bonds built between residents and their families, friends, staff, and volunteers that make the assisted living community a home for them.

“Music provides comfort, joy and enhances the lives of residents,” said Shelley Ryan, Director of Admissions/Marketing for Golden Pond. “This celebration recognizes the bonds built between residents and the assisted living professionals who are committed to providing residents with person-centered care and services.”
