Laurelwood Care Center would like to thank our friends at “The Fair Hill Stables” for their generosity to our elders. It was a great way to end our Nursing Home Week Celebration. Thanks Maggie!
Signature HealthCARE and the Department of Spirituality will welcome several spiritual and community leaders to our corporate office in Louisville, KY for our 2015 Interfaith Global Day of Prayer celebration.
National Nursing Home Week is a way for today’s care communities to proactively communicate that skilled care centers are light years ahead of what may be thought of as “Grandma’s nursing home.” Its our time to make an impressions with positive community relations – be visible within our community.
Today the Mayor of Elkton, MD Robert J. Alt visited our center and facilitated Bingo for our elders. He spoke with our residents and stakeholders and they enjoyed their time with him.

Cinco de Mayo
In the United States In the United States, Cinco de Mayo is widely interpreted as a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage, particularly in areas with substantial Mexican-American populations. Chicano activists raised awareness of the holiday in the 1960s, in part because they identified with the victory of indigenous Mexicans over European invaders during the Battle of Puebla. Today, revelers mark the occasion with parades, parties, mariachi music, Mexican folk dancing and traditional foods such as tacos and mole poblano. Some of the largest festivals are held in Los Angeles, Chicago and Houston.
Thursday, April 23 Laurelwood Care Center hosted their Spring Wellness Fair.
The room was buzzing with activity as the stakeholders walked from exhibit to exhibit, experiencing services such as chiropractor assessments, samples of health food cooked by a Fitness Chef (the meatless marinara was to die for), they received massages, had personal chaplain encouragement and much more.
Our vendors had a great time sharing with our staff and networking amongst them, the exchange of information was priceless. Many came with great prizes to raffle off. Stakeholders won bonsai trees, health and beauty supplies, Gift Cards and body pillows to name a few!
Laurelwood has a new commitment to complete wellness; we will be Happy and Healthy!!
