National Nursing Home Week Unites Communities

Today, thousands of America’s skilled nursing care centers and local communities are celebrating National Nursing Home Week® (NNHW). This year's annual observance began on Sunday, May 14, and will continue through Saturday, May 20. 

Established by the American Health Care Association (AHCA) in 1967, NNHW recognizes the role of skilled nursing care centers in caring for America’s seniors and individuals with disabilities. This year’s theme, “The Spirit of America,” honors the bond shared among staff and residents through special events and activities that capture the American spirit.   

Skilled nursing center providers and members of the public can share their celebrations throughout the week on social media with the hashtag #NNHW.

Check out the NNHW Facebook page to see how centers across the country are participating in the celebration and visit our website for last minute ideas and planning guidance.
