As part of National Skilled Nursing Care Week (NSNCW), which runs from May 12 to 18. The theme for this year’s national observance, “Live Soulfully,” celebrates skilled nursing centers, their residents and staff, by showcasing how they achieve happy minds and healthy souls.

“We are proud to celebrate the residents, staff and families in our center and community,” said Matt Hartman, executive director of the Illinois Health Care Association (IHCA). “This year, we share the happiness of our residents and staff through storytelling, art, food, entertainment and music, and honor the contribution each person makes to their community.”

Established by the American Health Care Association (AHCA) in 1967, NSNCW, formerly known as National Nursing Home Week, provides an opportunity for residents and their loved ones, staff, volunteers and the surrounding communities to acknowledge the role of skilled nursing care centers in caring for America’s seniors and individuals with disabilities.
