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.

The day ended with a buffet dinner at the Golden Corral in Sevierville, Tennessee. They were hosting an appreciation night for all veterans. It was truly an honor to get to share a meal with all of those American heroes.

We here at Signature HealthCARE are truly blessed to share and fellowship together as a family and enjoy these wonderful journeys with our amazing elders!

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!

To commemorate Veterans Day 2014, Signature HealthCARE of Fentress County honored its elder and stakeholder veterans. Chaplain Ed Walker presented each veteran with a certificate of gratitude for their service.

The honorees included veterans of WWII, the Korean War and Vietnam. Signature HealthCARE is founded on three pillars: Intra-Preneurship, Learning and Spirituality. It is the Signature HealthCARE mission to radically change the landscape of health care forever. Without the men in the pictures above, who have defended the American pillar of freedom, our mission would not be possible.

Signature HealthCARE of Fentress County salutes all the men and women who have served and are serving in the armed forces. We thank you for our freedom! We would like to thank the American Veterans Store of Pigeon Forge for donating hats to all our veterans.

This Veterans Day, Signature HealthCARE would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all of our nation’s military veterans, and those still actively serving. We especially want to thank all of our residents and stakeholders who served our country.

Happy Veterans Day from the Signature family to yours.

On Nov. 10, 2014, Signature Health Care of Fentress County, along with other Signature facilities, took two of our elders on an all expense paid vacation to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Our elders boarded a plane in Nashville, Tennessee and headed south on a Walt Disney World adventure! This is an experience of a lifetime for these two elders who had never been to the Magic Kingdom. One of our elders had never flown on a plane. How exciting! We will be posting pictures of their magical journey.
