National Nursing Home Week (NNHW) 2014 comes and goes so fast we hardly have time to enjoy the success of it all. Nationally, AHCA witnessed an explosion of print media coverage and use of the theme’s graphic “Living the Aloha Spirit.” Affiliate newsletters aplenty (e.g. Hawaii) promoted the theme and the related themed-products sold out! The NNHW Facebook page  now has nearly 5,000 “Likes” and this popularity increases every year, so forward the page to your friends and ask them to “Like” it for 2015.

Speaking of Facebook, postings on the NNHW site are plentiful this year and we encourage you to visit the NNHW Facebook page and see what is going on across the country. While there, post some happenings from your facility (be sure you have all the right permissions). NNHW would also like to “Thank” the many organizations and FB sites, such as Therapeutic Recreation, which embraced NNHW 2014 and were truly partners in spreading news about it.

AHCA is already working on a theme for NNHW 2015, which begins on Mother’s Day May 10, and promises it will be another upbeat celebration with many familiar cultural sights and sounds.
