The residents and staff from Bluegrass Care and Rehabilitation Center, Mayfair Manor, and Signature Healthcare of Georgetown enjoyed an exciting day at Keeneland. Keeneland is a national historic landmark that specializes in Thoroughbred racing.

The Spring Meet began April 3rd and will continue until April 24th. The residents and staff enjoyed picking the winners of the races and cheering each other on! The atmosphere was wonderful and the grounds were beautiful!

There were a few winners within this group, however, nobody struck it big. Everybody shared their “winning strategies”. Some chose the gray horse, some chose by the stats, some have a lucky number that they choose, and some chose a horse because they liked the name.

Our group’s biggest winner stuck with number 6. Our group had a lucky day and can’t wait to go back again!

 

 

 

 

 

Our employees at Bluegrass sure do love the Kentucky Wildcats!

We played UK basketball trivia on Thursday, March 26, and we had several winners. Go Cats!

SpiritLearnFest_Banner_625w

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.

Signature’s Urban Segment has been highlighting different cultures since September 2014 in the Quality of Life department. Every month a country is celebrated with weekly activities representing that specific country. Staff and residents learn about the culture which includes, crafts, food, language, famous landmarks, and learning about the customs and traditions.

China was highlighted during the month of February. Urban Indiana, Urban North, and Urban South celebrated the Chinese New Year on February 19, 2015. Each community in Urban created their own version of the Chinese dragon for their celebration. The top two dragons in each sub-segment were the winners!  The residents are still talking about the celebrations held at their communities.

The winners were:

  • Urban North – Madison and Hermitage
  • Urban Indiana – East Louisville and Newburgh
  • Urban South – Gulfport and Kenilworth

Chinese Culture

Bluegrass Care and Rehabilitation celebrated the Chinese New Year by holding a cooking demonstration of various Chinese foods.
