It’s a Small World

Tom Burke

As long term and post-acute care professionals are about to celebrate “National Nursing Home Week,” May 8 to 14, 2016, and May is Older Americans Month, this is an excellent time for everyone to reflect on their role and how best to contribute to improving the lives of residents, patients and clients, as well as improving both the skills of the professional and the public perception of the profession.

The American Health Care Association (AHCA), which established the special week in 1967, has chosen this year’s theme to be “It’s a Small World, with a Big Heart” to commemorate a historical time for older adults:

Join with others in the profession to recognize National Nursing Home Week. It’ll be fun! Let the community see that skilled nursing care centers are, indeed, operating in the fast lane of health care, yet at the pace of older adults and other vulnerable individuals.
