Crofton Care & Rehab Center Celebrates National Nursing Home Week

National Nursing Home Week is our time to show the community all the wonderful things that we have to offer .

Celebrating The Journey

National Nursing Home Week

May 13th– 19th 2012

Celebrating the Journey reminds us that every life should be honored. Whether the day is filled with comedy or drama, our residents, families, volunteers and staff are characters in that story. Ralph Waldo Emerson’s famous
sentiment that “Life is a journey, not a destination,” uses he Monarch Butterfly to depict his sentiment.

To take this analogy a step further, we can look again to the grace and eloquence of the butterfly and realize that our journey is our only guarantee. Our responsibility to make our way in faith, accept the change that comes, and emerge from our transitions as brilliantly as the butterfly.

During National Nursing Home Week, we celebrate the butterfly in all of us . Our week will be filled by soulful reminders of  each of our journeys.
