National Nursing Home Week begins on Mother’s Day May 13 and ends May 19, 2012. This year’s theme is “Celebrating the Journey.” Through the week we will have events to honor the lives and mile stones of the residents and the staff that care for them. Whether the day is filled with comedy or drama, nursing home residents and caregivers are co-authors and leading characters in each other’s life story.
The Honorable Mayor of Worthington, Al Oberloh, will be proclaiming National Nursing Home Week at South Shore Care Center on May 17, 2012. It is our opportunity to honor those who make our nation’s skilled nursing care centers special — residents, family members, employees and volunteers. Please join us in our celebration activities.
