When planning the activities for National Nursing Home Week, May 11th-17th, our Elder’s pondered on what to do for a community outreach project this year. Our elder community has an excellent track record for doing community outreach projects and fundraisers for charitable organizations including the Mid-South Food Bank, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the American Cancer Society. With many ideas circulating, we found ourselves wanting to do something new, something meaningful and something a little further outside of our community. The Quality of Life Department and the Resident Council at SHC of Memphis came up with the idea to make blankets for dogs at the Tennessee River Rescues organization located in Crump, TN. Many of the dogs at this rescue were pulled from the local high kill animal shelter, some come in when the shelter is overcrowded and refuses them, and others are surrendered or strays. Founder of Tennessee River Rescues, Mary Davis, works endlessly to save and care for the dogs of Hardin County. The Elders have had a blast making the fleece blankets for the precious rescue dogs and can’t wait to deliver them! On June 11th our elders plan to take the blankets to the Tennessee River Rescues headquarters.  We will keep you posted on this ongoing effort to give back to others and our furry friends!

Yesterday a lovely group of young girls from Calvary Church in Cordova came to visit the residents. Some helped with manicures,some sang songs and shared stories. It was a successful afternoon filled with fun, laughter, stories and memories that will last a lifetime. We cannot wait for them to come back!

Some of our residents have recently taken a liking to the game of dominoes, and it’s become quite the popular game as you can see from the photos below. What started out as a once a week activity involving 4 ladies has grown to a co-ed activity that happens 3 or more times per week! We allow the residents access to them at all times and encourage them to play even when it’s not scheduled on the calendar. This is stimulating for their minds and also encourages then to build relationships with residents they would not have otherwise associated.

Recently we have had the privilege of honoring one of our very own nurses for Signature HealthCARE’s Nurse of the Year Award. Barbara Kelly, L.P.N. , says “I feel very blessed to be selected as Nurse of the Year for Signature Healthcare. Over the past 10 years, Signature has given me many opportunities to make a difference in the lives of our residents. Working for a company with vision and passion is what keeps me excited about being a nurse in Long Term Care…….Our open interfaith environment makes me feel proud to work for Signature and is a powerful tool in binding us together as a family.” Not only is Barbara our Restorative Nursing Director, but she is also actively involved in activity programs, such as our cooking class and card making with the residents.We are so blessed to have Barbara as a member of our team and are so proud of her accomplishments at SHC of Memphis.

This year’s Hall of Fame was a little different than those past. We had the privilege  of honoring four male residents this year, all with very different stories. A brilliant engineer, a generous grocery store owner, a veteran and harmonica player, and a film industry agent who could ride a bicycle backwards were among some of their accomplishments. We also were proud to honor a very special stakeholder who started his career at SHC of Memphis as a CNA and is now one of our Physical Therapists. He is the perfect example of how Signature Healthcare helps stakeholders to achieve thier goals. Last but not least our community inductee, Director of Religious Education from St. Agnes Academy and St.  Dominics School, who has helped us to provide intergenerational programming such as BRIDGES and Day of Caring.

The night was filled with fun and good food provided by Chef Stanley and his crew. Many attending danced the night away to the musical talents of The Beverly Brothers. It was a successful event as stakeholders, residents, families and community leaders came together to honor the deserving inductees into the 2012 Hall of Fame at Signature HealthCARE of Memphis.
