MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - Brookridge Heights Assisted Living and Memory Care kicked off the last day of National Assisted Living Week on Friday.
The care facility did this by hosting a senior prom for its residents. Staff members contacted local police officers, local firefighters and even military officials to join the party.
Brookridge Heights' executive director says she's happy the community did come to support and connect with residents on a more personal level.
"We work a lot with our police and firemen officers, and what typically happens is that they're coming to our building in the time of an emergency, so it's really nice for them to come and spend time with us when we're not in an emergency situation, where they're able to get to know our residents and have fun with them,” said Jennifer Huetter, the Executive Director of Brookridge Heights Assisted Living and Memory Care.
Assisted Living and Memory Care staff hope to bring an even bigger and better event for residents soon.
