AHCA: Update on National Skilled Nursing Care Week May 10-16, 2020

Lisa Volk and Jackie Pappalardi in Clinical & Quality

After much consideration, AHCA/NCAL has decided to recognize National Skilled Nursing Care Week (NSNCW) as scheduled May 10-16, 2020. Despite the challenges we face this year, it is more important than ever to recognize staff and residents in skilled nursing and post-acute care centers across the country. 

We know that you and your staff are going to extraordinary lengths to keep residents safe from COVID-19. NSNCW presents an opportunity to acknowledge that and honor their hard work. 

We encourage you to explore the following resources for ideas and suggestions on how you might celebrate despite the limitations of social distancing: 

  • Visit NSNCW.org for a revised list of activity ideas and links to the bookstore for special NSNCW products. 
  • View, upload, and share messages of support at CareNotCOVID.com.
  • Go to Facebook and Twitter using #NSNCW and #CareNotCOVID to share activity ideas, videos, and messages. 

For the latest information and resources about COVID-19, visit ahcancal.org/coronavirus.

On behalf of the entire AHCA/NCAL team, we want to thank you for your heroic and unwavering commitment to caring for our most vulnerable population when they need you the most.
