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!!!

The “Fentress Fantasy Program” at Signature HealthCARE of Fentress County was designed to make the fantasies of our elders come true, allowing them to do all the things they would have been able to do before declining health brought them to us. It is our fantasy to give the elders in our care true qaulity of life.

On April 4th elder Lee Mathew’s fantasy came true when he attended Slam Fest 2015! Lee is an avid wrestling fan. When he expressed his desire to see a live wrestling match, Chaplain Ed Walker and Kelsey Hackett, Activities Director, went to work to make Lee’s fantasy happen! Lee had not attended a live wrestling event in over 20 years and thought he would never be able to again. “Lee enjoyed every minute of the action and is ready to go again even commenting he would love to wrestle at the next match!” said Kelsey Hackett.

“Living life and living it with meaning is our goal. We are here to not only to care for the physical and spiritual needs of our elders, but to meet their desires as well. If it’s possible were going to make it happen!” said Darian Goodman, CEO of SHC of Fentress County.

More than 1,000 Signature staff members registered for the recent Spirituality LearnFEST, a virtual learning conference that encouraged participants to consider the impact of spirituality, if fully activated, in a long-term care environment.

And that number doesn’t even include the many who joined in groups, in offices, breakrooms and wherever there were TVs or computers at Signature centers across 10 states to view the live broadcast. The event featured sessions that tied spirituality to numerous aspects of long-term care and health care, from clinical care to legislative involvement and the impact of spirituality in the workplace.
