Letter To The Editor - Nursing Home Week

To the Editor:

Nursing Home Week Celebrates Patients.

On behalf of the employee-owners at Miller’s Merry Manor, and in honor of National Nursing Home Week, I’d like to recognize the patients, along with their families and friends, who are part of our Miller’s family. Our patients are the people who have nurtured our community, helping it flourish and grow. They’ve been educators, business owners, technicians, and much more, each contributing in their own way. They come to us at Miller’s, often for just a brief time as they recover from surgery or illness, and then they return to home and family.

It is a privilege for us at Miller’s Merry Manor to be a part of that journey. They’re here at the time they need help the most, and in the process of caring for them, we’re inspired by the lives they’ve lived and the wisdom they share.

National Nursing Home Week gives our community an opportunity to celebrate them. The theme for this year’s special week is “Celebrating the Journey.”  It begins on Mother’s Day, May 13, and ends on May 19.

I hope you’ll take the opportunity to attend one of the special events being held at Miller’s and pay tribute to your loved ones, friends, and neighbors. They deserve it and it will make their day!
