Its Residents' Rights Month

​This week marks the beginning of a month long celebration of residents' rights. Spend time this month honoring residents living in all long-term care facilities, including nursing homes, sub-acute units, assisted living, board and care and retirement communities. Residents' Rights Month is a time for celebration and recognition offering an opportunity for every facility to focus on and celebrate awareness of dignity, respect, and the value of each individual resident. The theme for Residents' Rights Month 2016 is "My Vote Matters" with the goal of highlighting residents' right to vote and participate in the political process.  To learn more about Residents' Rights Month 2016 click here.

Resident's Voice
As a part of Residents' Rights Month, the Consumer Voice held the annual Resident's Voice Challenge where residents from across the country submitted stories, artwork, poems, and photos representing this year's theme. We received many thoughtful responses which can be viewed on our website.
