Dear Residents, Families and Friends,
There is so much love to go around here at Kensington Park. This February, I want to give a special shout out to the people who bring so much of that love and heart to this community – our volunteers!
From local high school students to our Kensington neighbors, to KP family members and alumni family members, we are so grateful to have volunteers around campus each week. Our Highlands (Independent Living) Activities Coordinator, Allison, leads a wonderful program, placing volunteers in various spots around campus: assistance with activities, news discussions, garden club, bartending, support at community events, and much more! Each volunteer goes through an orientation to get familiar with the ins and outs of the campus, and then they get a feel of where they would like to help out.
Thank you to all our volunteers below – we appreciate all you do for our residents!

Also this month, don’t forget to take care of you. In honor of National Caregiving Day on Friday, February 17th, join Kensington Senior Living for CareCon 2023, taking place from 3–5 p.m. ET. This free, live-streamed event is packed with celebrity-hosted, expert-led panels and workshops for the comedy-loving caregiver. Tune in to learn tools for resilience and best practices to help ease the stressors that can come along with caregiving. Click here to register.
Finally, it is important we set aside time this month to recognize Black History Month. Our residents have various backgrounds and are able to share stories on the contributions of African Americans from all periods of U.S. history. And it is important to keep learning – whether it’s discussions around the enslaved people first brought over from Africa in the early 17th century, to African Americans living in the U.S. today. Throughout the month of February, our Activities teams across campus will include events celebrating Black history, from educational trivia games and discussions to Black music appreciation and more.
Share the love this month – both with others and yourself!
