This year theme for National Skilled Nursing Home Week is one to celebrate! According to the American Healthcare Association;
National Skilled Nursing Care Week, formerly known as National Nursing Home Week, is one of the most important events of the year for nursing homes.
Held annually since 1967 and always beginning on Mother’s Day, National Skilled Nursing Care Center Week (NSNCW) is May 12-18, 2019. The observance is sponsored by the American Health Care Association and recognizes the role of skilled nursing care centers in caring for America’s seniors and individuals with disabilities.
We love this years theme!
“Live Soulfully” is the 2019 theme for National Skilled Nursing Care Center Week
The American Healthcare Association offers insight on the theme:
“What are you doing for yourself and others every day? What makes you happy? How are you contributing to your happiness and the happiness of others? Every day, skilled nursing centers assist our seniors and people with disabilities in living their happiest and best lives. Whether it’s planting, cooking, reading or listening to music, these centers pay it forward by helping individuals find their own happiness to improve quality of life. In 2019, National Skilled Nursing Care Week (NSNCW) will focus on living soulfully. This week will celebrate skilled nursing centers, and their residents and staff, by showcasing how they achieve happy minds and healthy souls. This coming May, show us how you Live Soulfully.”
The American Healthcare Association went all in providing great ways to carry out this theme in your SNF. Check out a few links to ordering the them collections to join in the celebration!
For all of the hard work and dedication it takes to ensure our Residents are provided with the best care possible. We want to say Happy Nurses Week, Happy Nurse Day, Happy NAC Day, & last but not least
HAPPY NATIONAL SKILLED NURSING HOME WEEK!!
