National Skilled Nursing Care Week
April 27, 2022
The American Health Care Association (AHCA) recently announced Creating and Nurturing Connections as the 2022 theme for National Skilled Nursing Care Week (NSNCW), formerly known as National Nursing Home Week.
This theme celebrates the reliable and strong commitment that each skilled nursing care staff member has to providing high-level quality care and improving the lives of every resident and family member within their care. During the last two years, staff members have found themselves “wearing many new hats” due limited visitation and social distancing, staff from all departments have stepped up to provide essential emotional support and social connections residents, staff, family and friends needed.
Now and through May 8-14, 2022, families, residents and staff are encouraged to team up together for a project, game, craft, exercise or hobby. Form a connection by learning something new from one another or share a laugh over a fun game checkers. Stay on track with your daily or monthly move goals with an accountability partner. Team up with others to make a group presentation to share.
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.
