Update on National Skilled Nursing Care Week

Update on National Skilled Nursing Care Week

The activities that would normally take place to celebrate National Skilled Nursing Care Week (NSNCW) this year will be impacted by COVID-19 restrictions. Since the activities and events suggested in the 2020 NSNCW Planning Guide are no longer possible as they involve interacting with others, AHCA has removed the guide.

Instead, participate in NSNCW (now and the week of May 11-16) by encouraging the public to share uplifting messages of support to residents and staff, giving them a boost of love that they need now more than ever.

Please visit to share your messages of support using the hashtag #CareNotCOVID.

Established by the AHCA in 1967, NSNCW, formerly known as National Nursing Home Week, recognizes the essential role of skilled nursing care centers in caring for America’s frail, elderly, and disabled.
