One of our amazing residents, Jay Monson at Birch Creek Assisted Living (located in Smithfield, Utah) wrote this article sharing his experience moving into assisted living. We love seeing someone make the best out of an unexpected situation and helping others along their way. Jay says “…my room went from being completely empty to feeling ‘homey,”…” thanks to the help of his family and friends. Thank you to Jay for his kind words on our community and we hope that everyone has this same experience moving into one of our Communities under SAL Management Group.

Here is our next video in our Interview Series. The Hughes Brothers have been so amazing to sit with us and play their music for us. We have been enjoying these interviews and loved seeing your reactions to them. We hope that you enjoy this video and we can’t wait to share our next interview with you.
We are excited to bring to you our new Celebrity Interview Series. This series was created with our residents in mind. Especially during this time we know it is difficult for residents and their families to stay positive. We hope that these videos will help a little in focusing on the positive and maybe reminding you of some good times. Stay tuned for our first video!
During this time focusing on our mental health is just as important as our physical health. The residents in our community are being protected from COVID-19, but we are also trying to find ways to keep morale up. Our super activities directors have been so creative and have worked so hard on activities and entertainment. We wanted to share this video to help those who are struggling with being at home and away from family and friends. We hope you are staying safe and staying positive. We miss you and can’t wait to have you inside our doors again.
We hope that you had an incredible Mother’s Day this last Sunday. Even though conditions required us to stay away from our mothers we hope that you and your family found some way to make the day special. We did our best on our end to make the day memorable for those sweet women in our community that have made life better for all those around us. We are so grateful for the women who make our day brighter in our building. Our Super Staff put together fun Mother’s Day activities for our amazing residents. We look forward to when we’ll be able to welcome family and friends into our community again, but until then we hope you are staying safe and thank you for keeping us safe.
We’ve had a fun week so far, our activities have been enjoyable even though we are quarantined and not allowing the outside public to come inside. We were able to go on a beautiful afternoon stroll and enjoy the nice weather, we’ve had dance parties through our hallways with some of our Super Caregivers, we have singalongs in the evenings together, lots of fun crafts, and some wonderful and much needed window visits from family and friends.
What a new experience for all of us, but we are trying to make the best of it while keeping everyone safe. Stay healthy and check out our Facebook page for our other fun activities.

Throughout SAL Management communities we have some very creative residents, employees, and family members. We’ve been busy playing games, singing, dancing, parades, Easter celebrations, and lots of video chatting. Even though it has been a difficult time for all of us, we think that we’ve managed to make the best of things and still have a good time.
We are so grateful for those in our community and around us that have brought in donations of treats, games, flowers, supplies, and sweet notes. It has brought a smile to our faces and has been a great support to us during this time. We hope that you’ve been following us on our Facebook pages and keeping in touch with us as best you can. We’d love to hear from you and help us feel a sense of normalcy during all of this.
