The American Health Care Association (AHCA) and the National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL) urge all Americans to salute the dedicated work of nursing assistants throughout our nation who, under the most challenging of circumstances, provide compassionate, selfless service to our nation’s most vulnerable seniors and persons with disabilities. The nursing assistant is an individual who brings strength, humor, compassion,
dedication, warmth and other essential qualities that add a human element to the tasks of care giving.#
The American Health Care Association and The National Center for Assisted Living represent nearly 12,000 nursing facilities, assisted living residences and homes for persons with mental retardation or developmental disabilities. For more information: (202) 898-6301.
