“Living the Aloha Spirit”

Celebrate a Hawaiian Theme for National Nursing Home Week 2014

“Living the Aloha Spirit” is the theme for National Nursing Home Week® (NNHW), May 11-17, 2014.

To Hawaiians, the word “aloha” has a deeper significance than just a fond farewell. By Living the Aloha Spirit, we show others love and respect and joyfully share life in order to create a better world. Key attributes of the “Aloha Spirit” include patience, kindness and good feelings and respect in caring about others. Embracing Aloha-Centeredness will cast a warm glow throughout your center and community.

The goal in long term and post-acute skilled nursing care centers is always Person-Centered Team Care in a harmonious, caring environment. This is “Living the Aloha Spirit!”

For NNHW 2014, we urge every nursing care center to live the “Aloha Spirit.” Promote messages throughout the week that demonstrate the qualities of: Patience, Kindness, Harmony and Good Feelings in Caring and Respect for Others.
