Operation Christmas Child

The Elders of Signature HealthCare of Fentress County are busy making Christmas boxes for Operation Christmas Child! A joint venture between SHC of Fentress County Elders, Quality of Life Department and Therapy Department, Operation Christmas Child gives boxes of Christmas presents to needy children. We have committed to 125 boxes and are well on our way to meeting our goal. This is great therapy for the body, mind and soul. With Christmas only a few months away our “elves” are diligently working to make the Christmas dreams of these children come true!!

Trip of a Lifetime for Residents to Panama City Beach, FL

In May 2015, residents from Signature Hometown facilities travelled to Panama City Beach for our annual “Elder Vacation.” Two residents from Signature Healthcare of Fentress County, Frank Baines, and Debra Bowden, got to go on this trip of a lifetime. Recently, SHC of Fentress County was featured in our Hometown Newsletter for our Quality of Life Director’s story about Debra’s experience. Below is an excerpt from the story:

SHC of Fentress County Wagon Ride 2015!!

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!!!
