Family Matters

Enjoying Moments That Matter,
Making Memories That Last
Willowbend’s signature Family Matters program carves out opportunities for residents to enjoy fun-filled quality time with their families, while creating cherished memories that last a lifetime.
Family Matters is one of our most popular events, offering themed celebrations at our Willowbend community where family and residents gather over a delicious dinner and live entertainment. And the best part is, we plan everything!

Some of the best family memories come from holiday get togethers, whether it’s aunt Susie’s famous egg nog during a game of charades or grandpa Joe’s piano lessons on Silent Night. That’s why Family Matters regularly includes holiday-themed events during Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s, Valentine’s, Easter, and more.


Our Thanksgiving feast of family favorites and fun Christmas activities, like White Elephant gift exchange or caroling, capture the glowing holiday spirit and are loved by all. By combining both old and new holiday traditions, you can continue to make new memories at Willowbend.

Our Halloween Bash is another guaranteed crowd pleaser that transforms our community into a spooky night of costumes, trick-or-treating, and candy-eating. You’ll find residents decked out in costumes as they pass out candy to children in their families and from the community.

In-between holiday events, Family Matters hosts a wide range of exciting and engaging activities, including live bands for dancing and movie nights of beloved classics, like Gone With The Wind and Breakfast At Tiffany’s. Family Matters reminds us that the time spent with family is what matters most.
