Treasure our elders
National Nursing Home Week, which is scheduled to begin on Mother's Day, May 13, and end May 19, is a special week where residents, caregivers, families, staff and volunteers honor and celebrate nursing facility life.
This week is a perfect time to visit your loved ones, friends and neighbors as many facilities will be holding special events.
If you are unable to visit, please make a phone call, send a card, flowers or even an email--this special attention will make someone's day.
Take this time to reach out and let someone very special know that you are thinking about them now and throughout the year.
This year's National Nursing Home Week theme is "Treasure Our Elders."
