National Nursing Home Week
Nursing home staff members and residents will conduct special activities and events Sunday through May 20 in observance of National Nursing Home Week.
Here's what I've decided. Canada is the long-term care employee of the world.
This week, nearly 1 million certified nursing assistants across the nation have been celebrating National Nursing Home Week as they render their special care services to nearly 1.5 million residents living in skilled nursing centers.
National Nursing Home Week kicks off Sunday, with a wide array of activities expected under the 2011 theme "Fulfilling the Promise." Nursing home employees and residents will be spotlighted in activities locally and regionally through the following Saturday. Many opening day events will involve community and family outreach in connection with Mother's Day activities.
A Senior Olympics, turtle races, sprucing up the outdoors. These were just a few events held around the country to honor National Nursing Home Week (May 9-15).
