The American Health Care Association (AHCA) recently announced “Sharing Our Wisdom” as the 2020 theme for National Skilled Nursing Care Week (NSNCW), formerly known as National Nursing Home Week.

The theme strives to encourage families, their loved ones and residents to participate in “Sharing Their Wisdom.”

Ask your parents or grandparent, great aunt or uncle to tell you about their childhood, first job, favorite memory, or an experience that had impacted their lives. There is so much knowledge and value that we can learn from the senior community just by asking and listening. Now and through May 10-16, 2020, families are encouraged to write letters, text, or video call with their loved ones to share uplifting messages of support, love, and their wisdom.

Established by the American Health Care Association (AHCA) in 1967, NSNCW recognizes the role of skilled nursing care centers in caring for America’s seniors and individuals with disabilities.
