KY Groups Celebrate National Nursing Home Week to Honor Nursing Home Staff and Residents

Published on May 21, 2012 at 2:57 pm in Nursing Home Abuse.

National Nursing Home Week, May 13-19, is celebrated in the month of May and is meant to honor the lives of nursing home residents across the country. In addition, this week aims to shine a spotlight on the nursing home staff members who try to make a difference in the lives of those they care for. With increasing instances of nursing home abuse in care facilities across the U.S., National Nursing Home Week seeks to highlight the hard work and dedication of the nursing home staff who want to ensure that the nursing home is a supportive, caring environment that nurtures and encourages the continual growth of residents.

The theme for National Nursing Home Week this year is “Celebrating the Journey,” and SurfKY.com notes that it is a perfect backdrop for friends, family members, and loved ones of nursing home residents to visit and continue to help them write new chapters in the story of their life. Though National Nursing Home Week is only celebrated once a year, the American Health Care Association (AHCA) encourages everyone year round to honor those who contribute to our nation’s nursing homes, including residents, employees, volunteers, and family members.

Nursing home staff members are quite often committed to providing exceptional and outstanding care to residents; however, others may not take their responsibilities seriously and may abuse and exploit those who they have been entrusted to care for. Kentucky nursing home abuse attorney Tad Thomas is dedicated to protecting the rights of nursing home abuse victims and helping them hold negligent parties responsible for the harm caused.
