Hawthorne Inn celebrates National Nursing Home Week

Every skilled nursing care center embodies a unique and vibrant spirit and community for residents, volunteers and staff alike. Acts of kindness, generosity and compassion from proud veterans, immigrants, and hardworking people of different faiths fill the walls of each center.

During National Nursing Home Week (r) (NNHW), May 14 to 20, skilled nursing care centers will unite under the theme, “The Spirit of America.”
