Residents at Huntington Common are encouraged to get involved and meet their neighbors. Residents who serve on the elected Resident Council meet to discuss a variety of community concerns and activities, from addressing a desired menu item to determining the next community picnic so all residents reap the benefits.
At Huntington Common, there are two Resident Council Groups: one for the Independent Neighborhood and one for the Assisted Living community. The Independent Neighborhood’s Resident Council meets to discuss issues and events in the community and plan the quarterly Town Hall meetings attended by residents, the Executive Director and Care Managers. Coordinated by the Activities and Volunteer Coordinators, the Assisted Living community’s Resident Council meets each month.
Members of the Resident Councils are primarily residents, but resident advocates, such as close friends or family members, also participate. Resident Council Meetings include the following discussions:
- Identify resident concerns and propose resolutions.
- Communicate residents’ needs to the Executive Director.
- Inform residents of upcoming events, community updates and changes to the Huntington Common Management Team.
- Present and discuss ideas to enhance the daily life for Huntington Common residents.
