National Residents' Rights Week 2005

Residents' Rights Week is an annual event designated by the Consumer Voice and is celebrated in October to honor residents living in all long-term care facilities, including nursing homes, sub acute units, assisted living, board and care and retirement communities. It is a time for celebration and recognition offering an opportunity for every facility to focus on and celebrate awareness of dignity, respect and the value of each individual resident. The theme for Residents' Rights Week 2005 is, "Together  We Can...Achieve Resident-Directed Care."  View Residents' Rights Week material.
