This week marks National Nursing Home Week, a designation that has been incorporated into the celebration of Older Americans Month since 1967.

The week spotlights nursing home residents and staff who create supportive and caring environments in which to live and work. The year’s theme, “The Spirit of America,” provides an opportune message to honor everyone who contributes to our state’s nursing homes – residents, family members, employees and volunteers.
