From May 13 to May 19, the American Health Care Association is urging everyone to celebrate National Nursing Home Week. The objective is not just to contact or visit loved ones in nursing homes, but also to celebrate the staff that cares for them.
This year’s theme is “Celebrating the Journey,” and nursing homes throughout the country have planned special events to honor the lives and milestones of its residents and dedicated staff.
National Nursing Home Week encourages everyone to celebrate the relationship between the staff, the residents, and their loved ones, as well as honor those that make the nursing homes possible.
While visiting your loved ones in nursing home facilities, be sure to look for signs of abuse. Unfortunately, the elderly can be prone to abuse and neglect. If you believe a family member has been abused by an employee, contact the nursing home abuse attorneys of Pohl & Berk, LLP at 615-277-2765 today.
