San Simeon Participates in National Skilled Nursing Care Week

May 13-19, 2018

National Skilled Nursing Care Week (NSNCW), formerly known as National Nursing Home Week, provides an opportunity to recognize the role of skilled nursing care centers in caring for seniors and individuals with disabilities.

National Skilled Nursing Care Week (NSNCW)

Celebrating Life’s Stories

Established by the American Health Care Association in 1967, the NSNCW theme this year is “Celebrating Life’s Stories.”

During NSNCW, an observance that begins annually on Mother’s Day, nursing care centers across the country will be collecting individual narratives to tribute to the relationships and experiences that shape the unique perspective of residents, families and staff. From May 13-19, San Simeon by the Sound will be among those listening to how significant events, relationships, and experiences have shaped who others are today, creating a shared sense of purpose within our center. Each person has a unique story to tell and we look forward to hearing the narrative of our residents.

NSNCW is a great way to shine a spotlight on the important role of skilled nursing care centers and letting the community know about the center’s culture, programs and services.

Long Island’s One of a Kind Long-Term Care Services

Not only does San Simeon provide unparalleled long-term care services, but the team adheres to patients’ dignity in a loving and nurturing environment that feels like home. The center offers a full variety of medical services, such as diabetes and pain management, nutritional planning, cancer care, ostomy care and more. In addition to offering recreational services to improve quality of life, the facility gives freedom and flexibility with unrestricted visiting hours for the convenience and comfort of residents and their family and friends.

San Simeon’s Medical-Model Adult Day Health Care program is designed to offer families the opportunity to provide care to loved ones with chronic illnesses and cognitive impairment. This model allows the family member/caregiver a much deserved break from full-time care responsibilities. It provides support and rehabilitating while giving the maximum level of independence to the patients. Each case is given personal attention by licensed nurses, social workers, dieticians and occupational, speech and physical therapists. Enrollment in the program grants the opportunity for a caregiver to go to work with peace of mind knowing their loved one is fully cared for in a safe and secure environment. The program runs from Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
