SHC of East Louisville recently partnered with Mercy Academy of Louisville, KY to spend time with our amazing Elders.  The students were fun, energetic and completely awesome!  Thank you so much for giving your time to spend with our Elders.

We celebrated April Fool’s Day today.  The Elders put Post-It Notes all over the office of our Admissions Director, Beverly.  She will be “pleasantly” surprised when she comes to work tomorrow!

On March 13, our Elders celebrated Alien Abduction Day by creating devices to communicate with each other and watched movies about aliens while we ate popcorn.  We had a great time.

Five Signature HealthCARE centers recently visited the Kentucky State Fair. SHC of East Louisville, South Louisville, Cherokee Park, Trimble County and Spencer County all attended – about 50 residents and staff members in total. We had a great time, ate good food and saw the most amazing exhibits of quilts and cakes.

We all met up in the South wing at the Food Court for lunch and took the group pictures there. Our Elders were very excited about eating the ‘bad’ food, like hot dogs, steak sandwiches and cotton candy. We spent a lot of time looking at the handmade items – especially the quilts. We saw a few cows and sheep, and tasted samples of the country ham and sorghum.

The group had a great day. I was very happy to see our SHC facilities come together for such a great time.

I mustache you a question!

Recently, we held a Mustache Bash for our Elders and Stakeholders.  Everyone was invited to wear a mustache and have their picture taken while we played games and ate cakes in the shape of a mustache.  We enjoyed playing Pin the Mustache on the Chaplain and Name that Mustache. 

Recently, we took our Elders to Bardstown, Kentucky to visit My Old Kentucky Home.  We watched a performance of “The Stephen Foster Story”and enjoyed a beautiful night under the stars.

The residents at SHC of East Louisville celebrated National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day by creating art. Our chosen medium? Peanut butter and jelly!

Some of the artists created self-portraits while others designed wonderful nature scenes. One resident was so proud of her artwork that she went through out the facility showing it off, telling everyone “I did this myself.”

It was deliciously messy!

I would like to take a moment to thank the staff of Signature HealthCare of East Louisville for the care and treatment given to my mother, Ms. Albertha Harrison.

I came to live in Kentucky via the military, however, my family lives in New York. My mother had suffered from seizures and I was always worried about her because I was so far away from home. However, my mom was very independent and family was always there (in New York) to look out for her. In May of 2011, my mom had a severe seizure which required hospitalization, and then rehabilitation.

I was with mom during the hospital portion and was told that she would be moving to the nursing home/rehabilitation center after a few weeks. Unfortunately, mom suffered a setback in August, which required an even longer stay in the hospital then was originally expected. It was not until October 2011 that I visited my mom in the nursing home located in New York. The facility was overcrowded and understaffed. To say that I was very disappointed in the level of care and attention that was given to my mom does not begin to tell the story.
