National Skilled Nursing Care Week

​​​​​​​​​​​Established in 1967 by AHCA, National Skilled Nursing Care Week (NSNCW) celebrates the essential role that skilled nursing care centers play in providing high quality 24-hour nursing care to millions of America’s seniors and individuals with disabilities.  ​

This year’s NSNCW theme—Cultivating Kindness—is inspired by the many acts of kindness that happen in skilled nursing care centers every day. Research has found that practicing compassion and kindness not only can improve health and well-being but can also strengthen human connections and bonds. Staff, residents, families, and members of the local community are 
encouraged to come together to participate in activities that cultivate and spread kindness during this special week, which begins on Mother’s Day, May 14th through May 20th, 2023!

Over the coming weeks, be sure to share with us your stories, pictures, videos and/or how YOU plan on celebrating ​by tagging us at @NationalSkilledNursingCareWeek on all AHCA social platforms including our NSNCW Facebook channel​ using the hashtag #NSNCW.
