Niskayuna, NY based Nursing Home celebrates and actively participates in this year’s National Nursing Home Week.

Niskayuna, NY (May 2014) This year, starting on Mother’s Day, the week of May 11-17 marks National Nursing Home Week. The American Health Care Association (AHCA) established National Nursing Home Week in 1967, which gives the opportunity for nursing homes around the country to celebrate the many contributions of their staff and residents. This year’s National Nursing Home theme is the Hawaiian, “Living the Aloha Spirit”, encouraging living a life of kindness, compassion, patience and harmony.

In Hawaiian culture, ‘Aloha’ has more profound interpretations than the simple ‘hello’. It also stands for treating others with respect, care, and humility which are the values upheld at Pathways Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. A place of unity, truthfulness, harmony and caring and respect for others. These values are core to the everyday workings of Pathways, and influence the staff and administration.

In the spirit of National Nursing Home Week many administrators take the opportunity to express how appreciative they are of their staff and the great work that they do. There is always a focus on making the work environment as enjoyable to work in as possible and National Nursing Home Week is the perfect opportunity to showcase these aspects of a facility.

“I’d like to take this moment to express my deepest appreciation and once again thank the amazing staff at Pathways Nursing Home for their constant commitment to nursing care,” said Jeff Ruso, Administrator at Pathways Nursing Home and Rehabilitation Center. “I want them to know they are an incomparable driving force and a bright example for all other staff teams in this industry. I am immensely proud of the work we have accomplished so far and look forward to what we have planned for the future.”
