Wednesday evening we had the awesome opportunity to share memories, sing songs and fellowship with residents and stakeholders about their loved ones and friends who have passed on from this life. As I looked out into the audience and saw the warm faces I was reminded of the scripture that says
Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!
2 It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments;
3 As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life for evermore. (Ps.133:1-3)
Family and friends gathered together in unity sharing the precious ointment of joy and the dew of God’s love one to another. It was in this atmosphere that the Lord commanded the blessing upon each family represented and the friends that shared their hearts.
We shared testimonies written by the residents and family members shared the funny antics of their departed. It was a good night, which concluded with fellowship and the breaking of bread. Thanks to everyone who shared the night with us. Attached are a few of the photos, we hope you enjoy them.
Wednesday March 25th, 2015, Laurelwood stakeholders and residents participated in a rousing game of wheel chair basketball. There was laughter, fun and competition. The Activities Department, Nursing, Human Resources, Maintenance and residents made up the teams and referees. Ms. Joan, (resident) said she never played basketball before and she made two baskets; she is still talking about it today. She said “it was dumb luck” The winning shot of the day was made by our HR Director Monique. It was a fun time had by all. “This is how we do it”
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.

Expansion. Adaptation. Innovation.
These words, in many ways, defined 2014 for Signature HealthCARE. The Revolution brought our total number of locations to 125. We welcomed new centers to the family and took pivotal steps to position SHC as an integrated care network capable of meeting health care needs across the full spectrum of care. We expanded into new business lines while continuing to enhance and invest in existing service offerings.
The holiday season gives us the opportunity to celebrate the birth of Jesus, the lighting of candles. and the celebration of the harvest. We also celebrate relationships, both new and old. During this season at Laurelwood, we have enjoyed great food, yummy baked goods, and warm fellowship. It takes a dedicated administrative team and committed staff to care for our elders and we do it well. From our Administrator Patricia Cleghorn-Turner, our Director of Nursing Dan Rash, and all of our Laurelwood staff and residents, “Happy New Year!” Enjoy the pictures.
