Llamas after lunch

Mayflower2 Petting-Zoo-1

Elders and Stakeholders from Signature HealthCARE Roanoke Rapids, NC took time away to eat lunch at a local favorite, Mayflower Restaurant. The seafood tasted great and boy was it plentiful! The best part was the laughter around the table and fellowship shared. But the fun didn’t end with lunch. We stopped by a visiting Petting Zoo to see the llamas, camel, and lynx. Resident Jerry Hux was brave enough to reach out and touch the llamas! He discovered just how soft they are.

SpiritLearnFest_Banner_625w

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.

Community, staff send more than 4,000 Valentine’s Day cards to residents

This year, one of my goals is to have more community involvement and gain more awareness for our facility and residents. As I was thinking about this, I kept thinking about how at Christmas everyone always wants to know what they can do for the residents at the nursing home, but fewer people think about this during other times throughout the year.

So, I decided to challenge local schools, churches and the community in general to send our residents a total of 4,000 valentines by February 13. Letters were sent out, and it was posted on Facebook and shared by word-of-mouth. We were absolutely AMAZED  at the response we got!

We received valentines from schools, youth groups, churches, Girl Scout troops, physician’s offices and staff! On Tuesday of last week, we were at 1,300 or so valentines and I really wondered if we would make it…and we did! On Friday afternoon, we actually went OVER our goal at 4,100 valentines!  However, on Saturday, as we were filling valentine boxes for their party, another staff member brought in some more which pushed us to 4,196 – our staff alone gave 1,069 valentines!

Each resident was able to get 40 individual valentines. This will definitely be something that I want to continue here. The pictures show what over 4,000 valentines look like!
