Signature launches cookbook with recipes from nursing home residents, staff

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.

Recipes in hand, Signature then held a contest asking employees to submit suggestions for the book’s title. Meanwhile, residents created and submitted artwork for the cover.

Centennial Celebration for Belle of Louisville

 

 

 

 

 

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.

‘Such a fun day’ at regional Senior Olympics games

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.

Gardening Fun

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.

Bourbon Tasting

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.

Flag Day Celebration

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. 

Beach Volleyball

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.

Carnival Games

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.
