It also stated that Delta Nu members are using this first anniversary to reaffirm their commitment to continue to be active in their local community, in their state, in their action and in their world.
In the proclamation it stated that there has been a dramatic increase in the number of Americans needing long term care, which will put new demands on nursing homes and those who provide nursing home care. It also stated that today’s nursing homes provide specialized services to both young and old, offering rehabilitation, sub acute, personal, hospice and respite care.
Members of the Georgia Nursing Home Association proudly sponsor National Nursing Home Week 2012, “Celebrating the Journey” and invite citizens of Georgia to visit nursing facilities to benefit the knowledge and experience of their staff, residents, family members and volunteers.
