Celebrating National Skilled Nursing Care Week

Formerly known as National Nursing Home Week, May 13-19, 2018 is now recognized as National Skilled Nursing Care Week. This week, established by the American Health Care Association (AHCA) in 1967, is a time to celebrate the many unique stories of skilled nursing care centers nationwide. That’s why this year’s theme is, “Celebrating Life’s Stories.”

Pathway Health would like to thank the health care professionals serving and working in skilled nursing care. We encourage all care centers to intentionally spend time this week discovering the personal experiences, events and relationships that shaped every individual in your care center to become who they are today. This small act of kindness will support a stronger sense of purpose and understanding within the community and your center.

“We are proud to honor the unique stories of those in the long-term and post-acute care communities,” said Mark Parkinson, AHCA President and CEO. “This National Skilled Nursing Care Week, we hope centers and community members alike take the opportunity to join us in this celebration of life.”

Celebrate National Skilled Nursing Care Week with AHCA and other skilled nursing care professionals this week.
