If you’re looking for an assisted living facility that appreciates Hanukkah, also known as the Festival of Lights, then Beverly Hills Carmel is the place to be. The festivities at the facility make residents feel welcome, included and part of the Hanukkah celebration. Below are more details about the holiday, along with what to look for in an assisted living facility.
Hanukkah is a celebration in the Jewish faith of when the Maccabees led the people to reclaim the Temple from the Syrian-Greek empire in ancient times. After the victory, the menorah inside the Temple was lit using a minimal amount of oil. There was only enough oil for one night, but the candles remained lit for eight days. It is this miracle that Jewish families all over the world celebrate during Hanukkah.
Residents at the Beverly Hills Carmel can participate in the Hanukkah celebration with staff members and fellow community members, making the holiday special and exciting. The staff members work to ensure that residents of the Jewish faith get to enjoy the holiday as much as possible. Whether it’s decorating residents’ rooms, playing games or giving gifts, residents can rest assured that their Hanukkah at the Beverly Hills Carmel will be one to remember.
What to Look for in Assisted Living
Hanukkah will end on Jan. 1, right as we welcome the New Year. And what better time than a new beginning to find a place you can truly call home. Choosing an assisted living facility isn’t always easy given the many options available. But there are specific things to look for and consider that can make the process simpler. Most facilities offer 24-hour care and support, along with three meals a day and assistance with a variety of routine daily tasks. For instance, staff members can assist you with everything from getting dressed to laundry services and transportation.
When making a selection, it’s important to consider the quality of the facility and its accommodations, the longevity of staff members and the general mood and atmosphere in the community. If the facility looks well-maintained and the staff members are friendly and available to help residents, it’s a good sign the community will be a fun place to live. If current residents seem happy and engaged, that's an indicator the facility is well-run and that the staff truly cares about residents’ well-being.
