Laurelwood’s Care Center at Elkton celebrates Signature HealthCARE’s annual Hall of Fame event.

Laurelwood

Unknown-3

This Veterans Day, Signature HealthCARE would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all of our nation’s military veterans, and those still actively serving. We especially want to thank all of our residents and stakeholders who served our country.

Happy Veterans Day from the Signature family to yours.

Laurelwood elders loved competing in the Senior Olympics. Mrs. Julia, Mr. Frank, Ms. Latanya, and Mr. Herbert all won medals in their events!

Signature recently held its Hometown Film Festival, an annual event in which nursing home residents create original films to compete for funds to go on vacation. Scripts are largely written by nursing home residents, who also star in the films. In 2014, more than 25 films were submitted, including the one above by Laurelwood Care Center.

We hope you enjoy!

My Father, Edward “Bunger” Stubbs, after months of  not being able to walk, and only a 50-50 chance of success, is now walking. Credit goes to an excellent surgeon, Dr. Yalamanchili, and the Ultimate Healer.  He is now at Laurelwood for his rehab and doing well.

My Brother, Edward III, is also at Laurelwood and I am grateful for the assistance and excellent care.

Please keep both in your prayers for a complete recovery!

Laurelwood has great love and affection for our GNAs and that was in full display during National Nursing Assistants week.  We kicked off our celebration with lunch for our GNAs (dinner for 11-7).  Then, we created a video appreciation, complete with “happy” overtones, created, by our unique departments.  As the celebration continued, we recognized our Signature GNA of the Year nominee, Christine Jones, and presented her with a gift.  Finally we gave homage to the GNA with the most years of service, Jacqueline Hammond, by presenting a gift also.

Other fun included the “Name that GNA” game, where GNAs were given brief descriptions of someone and they had to guess the GNA associated with that description.  Let’s just say, they got to know one another a little bit better!!    Our Elders paid tribute by participating in their activity for the day – their version of “Name That GNA”.  They had to match the GNA with their baby pictures!  What a blast!!

The featured event was the “Happy” video challenge, 7-3 shift versus 11-7 shift.  Each shift had to work together to create a video to the song, “Happy” by Pharrell Williams.  Filming the videos made me happy.  Watching the video footage, along with bleeps and blunders during Happy Hour made everyone – residents, family members and employees, laugh out loud!  The winning team was 7-3 shift, for their teamwork and funny antics.

The grand finale was a visit from the Kilby Cream ice cream truck – ice cream cones for everyone!

We appreciate our GNAs and thank them for all they do!
