Remember nursing home residents
National Nursing Home Week, which ends Saturday, is a special week for residents, caregivers, families, staff and volunteers. This week is a perfect time to visit or contact your loved ones, as many facilities will be holding special events. Take the time to reach out and let your loved one or acquaintance know that you are thinking about them now and throughout the year.
In addition to celebrating Nursing Home Week, member facilities of the Kansas Health Care Association will be kicking off the Second Annual Distinguished Citizen Award Contest. This is a statewide contest honoring the lifetime achievement of people living in nursing homes. Please contact your area home or go to www.khca.org for more information.
