Nursing home week under wayNational Nursing Home Week, which began on Mother’s Day and will end Monday, is a special week where residents, caregivers, families, staff and volunteers honor and celebrate nursing facility life.
This year’s theme is “Love is Ageless” and is a perfect time to visit your loved ones, friends and neighbors as many facilities will be holding special events. If you are unable to visit, please make a phone call, send a card, flowers or even an e-mail – this special attention will make someone’s day.
Take this time to reach out and let someone very special know that you are thinking about them now and throughout the year.
