If providers have their way, they'll be welcoming untold numbers of guests and dignitaries into their facilities in the coming days. The LeadingAge national Homecoming Week starts Sunday and extends through the following Saturday. Providers are urged to remind their area leaders and other key players of the operator's important role in the fabric of the community. This includes as a caregiver, employer and overall steady presence. This year's theme is "Inspire, Serve, Advocate." Various services, art exhibits, open houses and other entertaining events will take place around the country.
