I wanted to share a few pictures from the Senior Olympics.  We were able to bring with us 8 residents and 3 family members of the residents.  We were also able to have several stakeholders come out to support us during the event.

We had an amazing day.  Our morning started out early.  After we ate breakfast, we met up in the Living Room to get “fancied-up”.  We wanted everyone to know that “Life Is Sweet At Signature East”.  Several of our residents and stakeholders put bright pink color in their hair.  We put candy stickers on our faces and we wore our Life Is Sweet shirts in raspberry blue and bubble gum pink colors.  As we got ready we would chant “Sweet At East, Sweet At East” and we believe it.

As we arrived, all of the home office personnel were there to greet us.  We were offered muffins and drinks.  We also met Dawne Gee from WAVE-3 news and she was gracious enough to let us take a group picture.  The energy in the room with the other teams was awesome to feel.

The games were on and we were ready to play.  Our resident, Diane James, won a gold medal for the ADL challenge.  She was so proud of herself.  During the month before the games as she practiced, she worried that she wasn’t as fast as she had been in the past and Diane just knew that she wouldn’t give a good performance.  Diane had a look of joy and shock when she was announced the winner and Dianne Timmering came over to give her the medal.

Our other medal winner was Mary Kuhn in the Cornhole game.  She was the first contestant to throw the bags and she got a total of 5 points.  Mary smiled so big and she was so happy that she received a bronze medal for her game.

Overall, East Louisville won the Runner-Up trophy for the most points won during the day.  That trophy sits proudly for everyone to see in our facility.

Our residents had such a fun day.  A big THANKS goes to Joe, Dianne, Pam and the whole gang that made a memorable day for all of us, residents, families and stakeholders.  We are already talking about next year’s games and how we can do better.

– Keri Jewell, Quality of Life Director

 

We love planting flowers and watching them grow.  Now, thanks to Cristy, Joyce and the Restorative Department, we have beautiful pots to show off our begonias.  Very colorful pots for very colorful flowers.

Recently, our Administrator Brian and Assistant Administrator Matt had a study on what is bourbon and how it is made.  We even had the opportunity to taste several different Bourbons.  Brian made his delicious homemade barbecue for us to enjoy as well.  Thanks to Brian and Matt for the special treat.

On Friday, June 13, we celebrated Flag Day at SHC of East Louisville.   Our ADON, Larry, showed us the true meaning of patriotism as we raised a new American flag. 

We enjoyed our time out in the sun.  Some of our residents played volleyball, while others enjoyed the warm sun with a cool drink in their hands.  We listened to Surfing Music and some even dipped their toes in the water.  Special thanks to Winnie, Carolyn and Margaret for making the day wonderful.

Recently, several of our managers hosted a day at the carnival.  We played lots of games, such as corn hole and Pictionary while we enjoyed popcorn and snow cones.  It was a fun way to relax and enjoy each other’s company for our residents and stakeholders.  Thank you Marc, Amber and Beverly.

We recently took a trip to the Louisville Waterfront with 5 amazing residents.  It was a beautiful day to enjoy the sun.  We had a picnic lunch by the Ohio River as we watched several barges and the Belle of Louisville go by.  Right next to us was the waterplay area.  We could not resist getting wet as we felt like kids again.  Also, we were able to use this time as a remembrance for one special resident.  She asked if she could remember her late husband by tossing his Army dog tags in to the river.  She told us that it was a special moment for her.

To celebrate National Nursing Home Week, we took a trip to visit different places around the world.  We started our adventure in Paris, then off to Tokyo, Australia, Mexico and came home to the USA.  We had a great time sampling various foods from the places and learning about their culture.
