Labor Day can serve purpose in different ways to different people. For some, it’s a day to be off work or school and on the lake. For others, it’s the unofficial end of the summer season and the last day for the pool. Still yet, for some it’s a day to simply rest from all of the time and labor they have put in over the past year.
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, Labor Day was established in 1882 as “a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.” No matter how it is spent, Labor Day has always been dedicated to those who have served and worked to make our nation what it is today, and usually rest is involved.
At Dominion Senior Living, every day is like Labor Day. Not in the sense that the residents take a trip to the pool, but for the fact that their time at Dominion is a season of rest from the years of labor they have given to provide for their loved ones. These senior adults are the very people who poured their energy and efforts into their chosen line of work and contributed to America’s great state. Dominion provides every resident with wonderful living quarters, but more importantly, amazing care from a staff with the heart to serve those who have served us.
Just because this is a season of rest for Dominion’s residents doesn’t mean they are bored or sleep the whole day. In fact, it is just the opposite! Each senior adult has their own daily schedule based on their healthcare needs. They also have ample opportunity for activities, social interaction, games, and other great events to keep them active and alert. Their individual schedule may need to remain consistent each day, but you can bet there are a few fun Labor Day activities planned every year. This season of life should be enjoyable for the residents because, after all, they put in years of hard work and service and deserve the break. Guests, family, and friends are always encouraged to stop in for a visit to help brighten someone’s day, too.
Just as this holiday serves as a way to bless the hard-working society of our nation, Dominion Senior Living strives to bless the great people of the Southeast for their many years of dedicated labor. This year, as you enjoy Labor Day, take a minute to thank a senior adult for their dedication and service to this country. As you enjoy this holiday, remember the true reason we take a day off work.
