View the SHC 2014 Year In Review

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.

Twelve years ago, on New Year’s Eve, the elders at Surrey Place put together a Time Capsule to be opened in ten years. Somehow the capsule was overlooked until this year.

It was so exciting to open the package and see old photos, newspaper articles, an activity calendar, and a letter to the future elders at Surrey Place. The elders of 2015 are creating their Time Capsule to be opened in 2025!

 

 

 

Surrey Place held a Quarter Auction on December 13th, 2014 to raise money for our Elder Vacation.  There were vendors here from Lia Sophia, Pampered Chef, and Thirty-One. Everyone had a great time bidding and winning great gifts. Everyone who attended said they can’t wait for Surrey Place to have another quarter auction.

The Suwanne High School band and their chorus came to put us in the Spirit of Christmas. These students gathered in the courtyard and hallways to put smiles on our faces and a extra cheer in our hearts. They sang and performed many familiar Christmas carols! Thank you, Suwannee High School!

Emma Green turned 100 years old on December 14, 2014 and enjoyed a special party with her friends at Surrey Place. Her daughter visited to share in the festivities. Emma was the middle child of eight children and grew up in the Goldridge, Alabama community.

She came from a poor family in a small community, and when the school closed down she went to work as a seamstress at Sewell Manufacturing and later at Lee Company (Lee Jeans). She married Hershell G. Green, a farmer, in 1936. She always had a desire to teach and attended college at night and during the summer in the late 50s. After this, she taught elementary school and continued her education. She later graduated in 1967 from the University of Alabama.

When asked what was the secret to living a long life, her daughter told us that they lived off the farm–fresh vegetables and very little meat, no smoking or drinking, and that they came from a lineage of longevity.

Happy Birthday, Ms. Emma!

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.


Surrey Place Care Center hosted a Hall of Fame Café celebration on October 9th to honor elders at the local nursing home.  The purpose of the Hall of Fame program is to recognize the outstanding accomplishments and experiences of the center’s elders. Employees, volunteers, and community members are also honored for their contributions to the home and society as a whole.

This year’s honorees for Surrey Place were: Norman S. Anders, James Thompson, Denward Morgan, and Shanna D. Kirby.

“We stand to learn so much from the lives of our residents, and we would be remiss not to share these stories with as many people as possible,” said Administrator/CEO Brenda Lacy. “We’re proud to celebrate the accomplishments of these individuals, and we’re grateful to the community for supporting this event.”

Surrey Place Care Center is one of 123 locations operated by Louisville, Ky.-based Signature HealthCARE. Launched in 2003, the Hall of Fame event is hosted annually by each Signature home at different times throughout the year. In recent years, Signature has taken a different approach by having each center host its Hall of Fame ceremony on the same day, creating a synchronized, company-wide event.

“Our residents have given so much to their hometowns and our nation, and these contributions deserve to be celebrated,” said Signature President and CEO Joe Steier. “The Hall of Fame Café induction ceremonies are a small way for us to say ‘thank you.’”

For more information about the event, contact Brenda Lacy, Administrator at 386-364-5961.

 

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 submitting, including the one above by (facility name here).

We hope you enjoy!
