National Nursing Home Week May 12-18 2013
We’re proud to announce the 2013 theme for NNHW: Team Care. NNHW will be observed in skilled nursing facilities throughout America, beginning Mother’s Day, May 12 and continuing through May 18,
NNHW’s theme recognizes residents and patients in long term and post-acute care settings, the dedicated staff who care for them, and the value of care planning where everyone “pitches in” for optimal outcomes. The observance is an opportunity to involve families, community members, youth, and others in a community-wide show of support and respect for these individuals and the staff who provide care or support services. Activities are designed to foster intergenerational contact, strengthen family relationships and to encourage volunteerism by individuals and local organizations.
