All across our nation, skilled nursing care centers create a unique spirit and community for residents and staff alike. Visit one of these nursing centers in your town or city, and you will witness the American spirit in action. Stories from proud veterans, immigrants and hardworking people of different faiths fill the walls of each center every day. This tapestry of cultures and experiences capture the essence of our proud country. Beginning May 14 to 20, 2017, the nation will salute skilled nursing care centers and the role they embrace in society with the theme “The Spirit of America.”

Check back in late February for the 2017 Planning Guide and Product Catalog.

Established in 1967 by the American Health Care Association (AHCA), National Nursing Home Week publicly honors the indomitable spirit of residents and staff who face each day with a sense of purpose and compassion.
