Enriching Every Day

Did you know that it is National Nursing Home Week? The purpose is to bring together residents, staff and family.
Nursecare on Irving Place in Shreveport had a cookout today for the residents, but also to show appreciation to their staff. I got lucky and got a free lunch!

You can hear a lot of pros and cons about nursing homes, but they are generally what you make of them. If families take an active role, they can have a major influence on the care that their loved ones receive. It's hard to imagine that anyone with a parent, grandparent or spouse in a nursing facility would not do that.
