National Nursing Home Week, which began on Mother’s Day and ends May 19, is a special week to “Celebrate the Journey” of residents and honor them with a shower of community support.
This year’s theme of “Celebrating the Journey” is a perfect backdrop for a visit to loved ones, friends, and neighbors as they continue to write new chapters in the journals of their journey. Many skilled nursing care facilities across New York State will be hosting special events.
If you are unable to visit, please make a phone call, send a greeting card, flowers or even an email. This special attention will make someone’s day.
