2 Residents from Signature Healthcare of Fentress County recently participated in Signature Hometown’s 7th annual camping trip at the Overton Lodge at Standing Stone State Park in Hilham, TN. They joined residents from 5 other homes in the rural segment for a “Shipwreck Island” themed camping experience. Teams of castaways competed in games such as best SOS flag, message in a bottle, and best rescue boat replica. After dinner, everyone sat around eating smore’s and telling ghost stories. Maxine Watson had never been camping or even had a smore! At 87 years young, Maxine said she was so glad she came and got to experience it, even though it was a little overwhelming at times. Her favorite thing to do was sit by the fire. Eddie Ramsey enjoyed every minute of it. He grew up exploring the outdoors and said he felt right at home. captain eddie maxine smores 2 smores 3

On Wednesday June, 10th Signature HealthCARE of Fentress County continued it’s Nursing Home Week celebration with a wagon ride at Timber-Ridge Camp Ground. Thanks to Standing Stone Care and Rehabilitation Center and Pickett Care and Rehab, our Signature HealthCare sisters, for each lending us a Van. We were able to transport 29 Elders to the ride. Anthony Fackler was gracious enough to guide his team of horses and wagon taking our excited elders on the ride of thier lives! Timber-Ridge volunteered the use of their facilities to wait for each ride, eat lunch and take bathroom breaks. The SHC of Fentress County Team was there to assist with the day. We have such an amazing team, some came and volunteered on their day off. Seeing the smiles and excitement on the faces of our elders was priceless!!! What an Amazing day!

“I was so moved to see one particular elder there. He came to us a year ago with a left below the knee amputation and a wound on his sacrum the size of a saucer among other multiple heath problems. His wound is almost completely healed now. Our team, the wound nurse, floor nurses, CNA’s and therapy team made it possible for this elder to go on the wagon ride.” said Penny Rector COTA/L.

We would to thank Anthony Fackler, Sandy Macy, Jeff Callis and Cindy Schmidtz for giving their time to help our elders!! Thank you all so very much!!!
