“National Nurses Week” is May 6-12 (with Florence Nightingale’s Birthday remembered on May 12th), “National Emergency Medical Services Week” is May 15-21 (including all first responders), and “National Senior Health & Fitness Day” is May 25th.
Of course, Mother’s Day (May 8th), Peace Officers Memorial Day (May 15th), Armed Forces Day (May 21st), and Memorial Day (May 30th) are also part of the May observances.
No matter which day it is during the month of May – this year or any year – there is something noteworthy that impact the aging in place market and the services we create and implement.
There could be – and likely are – even more celebrated days and weeks during May that involve some aspect of what we are all about and the general services we provide and render. The dates and designations mentioned are the most commonly cited ones.
Other months have their share of observances that are important for us to note and remember, but May has more than any other that are specific to our industry. Let’s keep these dates in mind as we work with and interact with our clients and their families. Be sure to promote them in the workplace and among our circle of professionals and strategic partners – to help raise awareness for them.
Let’s have a great month of May as spring is in full swing and we have many observances that call attention to the important work that we do.
