Meet Shannon Ownby, the owner of Fabrics N Quilts in Jamestown, Tennessee. She is always ready for a challenge and committed to giving back to her community.

Hello again from the elders and stakeholders of Fentress! This summer is proving to be very exciting in our home with the new Restore Me! program, which is aimed at helping our elders get up and get moving for better health.

So far, we’ve eaten deep dish pizza, toured famous landmarks in the Windy City, and tried a local favorite of french fires with ice cream during a walk through the Shedd Aquarium. The elders are counting their steps every day and are looking forward to our first detour into Springfield, Illinois to see what adventure awaits there!
Hello from Camp Fentress! Our camp is well underway and a huge hit with both the kids and our home’s elders! The kids help kick things off in the morning with New Day Group, and also help with crafts and making snacks.
Anyone who is in our home on a regular basis can see friendships being born and memories being made that will last a lifetime. Our home is truly blessed!
The stakeholders and residents of our facility had a blast during our annual Nursing Home Week celebration with a theme of “The Great Outdoors!” Our nursing staff and other departments participated in gameshows, trivia challenges, med cart races, and of all things an elk calling contest! The residents really got a kick out of that one! Everyday the residents took a virtual tour of one of four National Parks and learned about them through trivia and slideshows. To wrap up the week we were visited by the York Elementary kindergarten classes for a day of fun and food. Games included pin the tail on the raccoon and the deer antler ring toss. In the end, everyone sat down for a meal of grilled hot dogs with all the fixings!
Spring is in full swing at Signature HealthCARE of Fentress County!
