Crosby Commons Wins 2016 Connecticut Assisted Living Association Award


The Connecticut Assisted Living Association (CALA) recently announced their Annual Award Winners for 2016! This trade association, formed in 1995, has served to promote and support assisted living providers through education, programming and newsletters, legislative and public policy advocacy, and assessment of organizational best practices. Each year, CALA chooses various assisted living organizations to receive awards based on their exemplary practices, programs or individuals.

This year, CALA has awarded Crosby Commons, an independent and assisted living community located on the Wesley Village campus in Shelton, CT, with the Best Practices Award for Managed Residential Services in the Activities category. Crosby Commons was selected for this prestigious award for their “Law Enforcement Appreciation Day” program where fifteen Shelton police officers visited the campus for a lunch hosted by the community's residents. They shared laughs, stories, smiles and handshakes before the officers each left with a “Law Enforcement Survival Kit”, made by the residents of Crosby Commons, consisting of candy and thoughtful messages of encouragement. This innovative program encouraged meaningful connections with the local community while bringing together wisdom and friendship in an extremely rewarding way!Residents with SPD-176632-edited.jpg

Crosby Commons is owned and operated by United Methodist Homes (UMH), a local, mission-based, not-for-profit organization based in Shelton, CT. In addition to this award, UMH was also the recipient of the 2016 CALA Best Practices Award in Marketing for their Online Caregiver Link as well as the Staff Recruitment and Retention Award for their Supervisor Training Program.
