“Magical” was the word of the week as 85 Elders and Stakeholders from various Signature HealthCARE communities arrived at Walt Disney World for the final vacation of 2014.

This is the fourth consecutive year we have taken groups of nursing home residents on the vacations of their dreams. In past years, large groups have traveled to a single destination. However, last year, in an effort to accommodate a wider variety of preferences, Signature took smaller groups to several different destinations, including BostonAtlantic CityPanama City Beach and Gatlinburg.

Expansion. Adaptation. Innovation.

These words, in many ways, defined 2014 for Signature HealthCARE. The Revolution brought our total number of locations to 125. We welcomed new centers to the family and took pivotal steps to position SHC as an integrated care network capable of meeting health care needs across the full spectrum of care.

On December 16, 2014 SHC of Fentress County in cooperation with the Fentress County Emergency Management Agency enacted a disaster drill. The scenario was as follows: a helicopter en route to Jamestown Regional Medical Center had crashed in the front parking lot of SHC of Fentress County. On its descent, it took out the Fentress County communications tower.

The mock crash caused fumes, flames, and debris to fill the front part of the facility. Sixteen local ROTC students from York Agricultural Institute, the local high school, acted as the victims of the crash. When the disaster went live, the facility went into action setting up a command central, triage area, and communications center.


On November 20th, residents and families of Signature Healthcare of Fentress County gathered together to celebrate Thanksgiving with our annual Thanksgiving dinner. This is the largest family event at SHC of Fentress County with over 140 family members in attendance.

“It is such a nice time to get together and be thankful for each other and another year,” said Kelsey Hackett, Quality of Life Director. “We love to see the families visit with their loved ones. It’s like a mini family reunion for some.”

The dietary team prepared a fabulous meal of turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, green beans, and yeast rolls. Families brought desserts to share with everyone.  We are proud to host this wonderful event to show our appreciation and thanks to the families and elders at Signature Healthcare of Fentress County.

On Monday, November 17, SHC of Fentress County and Standing Stone Care & Rehab, also a Signature HealthCARE facility, teamed up for a Gatlinburg adventure to Cades Cove.

Cades Cove is one of the most visited areas in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The isolated valley was once home to an entire community. Visitors can see homes, churches, and school buildings from a bygone era.

Although it was a cold and snowy day, it did not stop the residents from enjoying the beauty of the valley and the surrounding mountains. Braving the cold weather, the residents were treated to sightings of wild deer, turkeys, and squirrels scampering through the trees. Seeing the still-standing pioneer homes and buildings was like traveling back in time.


Our elders will be returning from their Walt Disney World adventure today. They will be bringing back with them many souvenirs, however the best souvenirs will be unseen–they will bring back with them all the magical memories of the Magic Kingdom! This trip, their first to Walt Disney World, has been a dream for the both of them.

This is what Signature HealthCARE and SHC of Fentress County are all about. We believe life should be fulfilling and worth living. Our mission is to radically change the landscape of health care forever. We are achieving this by changing and enhancing the lives of our elders with true quality of life programs. We hope you enjoy the pictures and celebrate our elders journey with us!
