National Nursing Assistants Week takes place from 9-16 June 2016 in the USA.
Now in its 39th year, this annual event is a special time to show our local communities how residents and carers can work together to provide care for those who need it.
There will be a number of fun, educational events held throughout the week, all aimed at showing us the amazing work carers do and inspiring us to get involved!
In 2016 carers can look forward to recognition events rewarding the unsung heroes who care every day, as well as events in the press to help raise awareness.
On 9 June 2015 at the start of this special week it is National Career Nursing Assistants Day. This is also an important time to recognise the work of carers who have dedicated their lives to caring for others and to learn from the skills they have gained in that time.
There are lots of ways to get involved, whether you are already a carer or would like to learn more about how to become one.
