La Porte City Nursing & Rehabilitation Center is using National Nursing Home Week, May 12-18, to honor those who work, live, and volunteer in nursing facilities every day.  The theme for this year’s events is “Team Care: Everyone Pitches In.”  Families, volunteers, and friends are invited to join us for the events.

In addition to these events we will be hosting relay races throughout the week with staff and residents participating. Each day of the week individual departments will be featured showing the ways they “pitch in.”  Stop and in and visit the display in the dining room hallway.

Friday noon’s barbecue kicks off the “outdoor season” when residents enjoy their Friday meal on the patio for the next four months, weather permitting.
