National Nursing Home Week has been celebrated for 50 years - since 1967.  This year’s theme is The Spirit of America.  The theme “underscores the bond between staff, volunteers and residents that capture the American spirit.” (AHCA – American Health Care Association).

Nursing Homes are vibrant communities filled with residents, staff, volunteers and families from all walks of life, nationalities and cultures, much like our country.  Many are veterans, immigrants and people of different faiths.  Everyone that lives and works in these communities brings meaning to the spirit of America – kindness, generosity and compassion.

Briggs Healthcare® is proud to support these communities for the past 70 years and counting!
