National Skilled Nursing Care Week May 13-19

May 13 will begin National Skilled Nursing Care week which will be celebrated at Sunrise Terrace in Winfield. Established by the American Health Care Association (AHCA) in 1967 and always beginning on Mother?s Day, National Skilled Nursing Care Week (NSNCW), provides an opportunity to recognize the role of skilled nursing care centers in caring for America?s seniors and individuals with disabilities.

The 2018 NSNCW theme is, ?Celebrating Life?s Stories.? The theme serves as a tribute to life?s most significant events, relationships and experiences that shape the unique perspectives of residents, families, staff and volunteers in long term and post-acute care.

Highlights for the week will include a program by the historical society, a picnic and a trip to the library.
