Residents’ Rights Month is held during the month of October to celebrate and focus on awareness of dignity, respect, and the value of long-term care residents. This year’s theme is “Stand for Quality” – to emphasize the importance of standing for quality in all aspects of residents’ experiences – quality care, quality of life, quality of services, and quality choices.
