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.
These words, in many ways, defined 2014 for Signature HealthCARE. The Revolution brought our total number of locations to 125. We welcomed new centers to the family and took pivotal steps to position SHC as an integrated care network capable of meeting health care needs across the full spectrum of care. We expanded into new business lines while continuing to enhance and invest in existing service offerings.
Congratulations to the 2014 Hall of Fame inductees! This year’s recipients for outstanding lifetime service went to Elder Hattie Stewart and Elder Shirley Keffer, outstanding community and volunteer service awards went to The Beane Family and The Nance Family singing groups, and outstanding employee service for more than 20 years went to Ms. Joanice James. Thank you, young people, for your service, dedication, and love for our elders!
A special thank you and shout out to Mrs. Olivia Yarborough for her love and support for the elders and staff. Mrs. Yarborough presented a beautiful piece of art she obtained that reminded her of our work family. We love and appreciate you so very much.
The Bridge at Monteagle has been raising money for the Elders’ Activity Fund. Two stakeholders went above and beyond a buzz cut to help ensure the precious elders get to participate in a variety of activities, especially a vacation to the Smoky Mountains.
Dietary Director Matthew Griffith and Chaplain Joel Reynolds volunteered to auction off chances for other stakeholders to cut their hair. If you know either of them, this was a big deal! When the time came for the hair affair, there was hesitancy about allowing the all-to-eager winners have their way with the scissors.
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.
