Georgia Holiday Program Encourages Public to Visit Skilled Nursing Centers

The Georgia Health Care Association's (GHCA) successful "Share a Moment of Love this Holiday" campaign encourages the public to visit residents of skilled nursing centers during the holidays. The program, now in its second year, has already helped to bring holiday cheer to nursing care centers across Georgia.

In his interview with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Deke Cateau, administrator of A.G. Rhodes Health & Rehab in Atlanta reflected on why it is particularly important to spread holiday cheer to residents.
"[The holidays are] a time when a lot of residents reflect," said Cateau. "They think about the loved ones they have lost over the years. People assume that all of our patients have families that live here locally. We have many residents whose families may live out of town. We have some who do not have family support at all, which emphasizes the needs for campaigns like this."
