“Here at Signature HealthCARE of East Louisville, our stakeholders, residents, and family members are a united team. We work as a family to not only provide exceptional medical care, but to foster friendships and compassion for our residents.” Brian Mueller, Administrator
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.
We had a great time on Saturday, when several of our residents received gifts through Home Instead’s ‘Be a Santa to a Senior’ program.
We had about 10 officers from the Louisville Metro Police Department 6th Division and 6th Division Advisory Board visit with us on Saturday and deliver the gifts. They brought gifts for 20 of our residents for Christmas, plus donated a lot of gifts to our Quality of Life Department. Our residents were amazed by the wonderful gifts and the generosity of the officers. Each resident received at least two outfits, plus music CDs, pajamas, toiletries and more.
Diane James said she was very thankful that the officers came to spend time with us. She said she was amazed because “they spend their efforts protecting us and then to take the time to show us how much they also care for the people they protect.”
Joyce Shawler received her Bachelor of Science Degree from WKU in June 1964. She has always been very proud of that accomplishment. During the past, in the transition of moving from one place to another, her diploma was lost.
She said that she thought she would never see it again. Our team jumped at the chance to allow Joy the thrill of seeing her diploma again. Our Administrator Brian and Chaplain Jimmy were able to contact the school and they printed another diploma for Joy.
It was a sweet surprise for Joy when we were able to present her with this prized possession. It hangs proudly in her room where she can see it every day. Congratulations Joy!
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.
Just in time for the holiday cooking season, Signature HealthCARE (SHC) has released a cookbook featuring recipes – some generations old – from residents and staff members in its nursing homes.
Titled ‘Cooking with Love,’ the book features a little bit of everything, from appetizers, soups and salads to sides, all-American dishes, ethnic fare, desserts and more. The project began earlier this year in Signature’s Urban Division, with staff members at SHC centers soliciting recipes from residents and contributing their own.
Recently, we were able to celebrate the Belle of Louisville’s 100 birthday with the Centennial Festival of Riverboats. We took a river boat tour of the Ohio River on the Spirit of Peoria where we dined on a feast of delicious foods and live entertainment.
It was such a treat to be able to attend this once in a lifetime event and help the Belle celebrate 100 years of fun in the city of Louisville.
For those unable to attend a SHC Hall of Fame ceremony, we’re bringing the celebration to you with four sites that were selected to have their ceremonies broadcast live via our website.
On October 9, 2014, 99 Signature HealthCARE centers across the southeast and midwest will induct over 400 distinguished individuals into the Hall of Fame, in local ceremonies featuring celebrity speakers and presentations about the inductees lives and accomplishments.
The Hall Of Fame is an innovative Quality of Life Program developed by Signature HealthCARE designed to honor the lives and accomplishments of our residents, stakeholders, volunteers, and others who have had such an impact on our centers, communities, and nation.
On October 9, 2014, 87 Signature HealthCARE centers across the southeast and midwest will induct over 350 distinguished individuals into the Hall of Fame, in local ceremonies featuring celebrity speakers and presentations about the inductees lives and accomplishments.
