Roaring 20’s

Kicking off Nursing Home Week Gangster style. The staff and elders had a fun day taking a few steps back to the roaring ’20s! The elders definitely had some interesting stories to tell. Make sure to stay tuned for the rest of the week for more fun themes to come!

Pet Parade

A paw-fect time was had by all on Wednesday as the pooches and even a donkey paraded through our facility parking lot for the elders to pet and give treats to. A huge thank you to Hospice of Chattanooga for bringing the adorable furry creatures for everyone to enjoy! It’s such a blessing to see the huge smiles that animals bring to the faces of our elders. We are sure that these pets were tired as a dog by the end of the entertainment!

Say hello to Simba!

Meet our new fur baby Simba! He may be little, but he is already putting some big smiles on our residents’ faces, and he just loves all the attention! A big thank you to our Nurse Practitioner for not only bringing Simba into the life of our residents but also taking the time to take him around to visit them!

Dog Day Afternoon

Nothing like a bunch of doggies to make our elders smile during this ruff patch! We are very grateful for Hearth Hospice for coming to our facility on April 24th and putting on a Hawaiian Pet Party for our residents! Windows were open, faces were smiling and tails were wagging! It was just another Dog Day Afternoon at Signature Healthcare of South Pittsburg!

Dancing in the Halls

Sometimes walking it off is just not good enough, so you have to dance it off! That’s exactly what team South Pittsburg elders and staff decided to do. we started in one hall with the hokey pokey move on to the next with the cupid shuffle than to the third with the electric slid and ended with a little YMCA. It was awesome watching everyone letting loose a little and hearing the laughter in the halls. As the QOL Director, I would like to say a big thank you to our awesome team for always being on board with all the craziness I throw at them, they are always willing to help put a smile on our elders’ faces.

Hall of Fame 2019

WOW! What an amazing and emotional event! We are so honored to have these wonderful people be a part of our lives. We are even more honored to have the privilege to recognize them by inducting them into the Hall Of Fame in appreciation for all they have done. A big thank you also to all our staff who made this event a success; from the amazing food, beautiful rose decorations to the wonderful family and friends we were blessed to celebrate with. Those who were inducted were Richard Woodling, Leona Kilgore and Pat Talkington. Along with being inducted in to the Hall of Fame, Pat also received her pin for 40 years with Signature HealthCARE.

Puppy Love

The elders had a special visitor today. Maize came by to visit as well as check everyone’s lap out. Mr. Cannon enjoyed riding Maize around and talking to him. We have a lot of pet lovers here and they look so forward to the visits they get from the pets our visitors bring by. Thanks Michelle Jacobs, social service director, for bringing Maize by to visit.
