On Sunday, April 13, 2014 we made available free health screenings including blood pressure, respiration rates, blood glucose levels, bone density, and stress assessments to our community.  We also partnered with the local police department to provide parents with ID kits for their children that included fingerprinting.  The event included freshly grilled hamburgers and hot dogs that people could purchase to benefit our residents by raising funds for activities, outings and a special vacation to Panama City Florida with other residents from facilities across the country.  Signature was privileged to have provided an opportunity for residents, staff, family members, and the broader community to learn more about their health by hosting the Health Fair.  We look forward to hosting our next health fair and continuing to be the leader in providing long-term health care and inpatient rehab to our community.

This fall, about 170 Signature residents and caregivers traveled to Branson, Missouri for the annual resident vacation. For a glimpse of the action, check out the video below.

This year three residents, one staff member, and one volunteer were inducted into our Hall of Fame.

  • Resident Francis Britt of Greeneville who was a beloved nurse at Takoma Hospital.
  • Resident Sandra O’Brien of Czechoslovakia who was an international fashion designer and model.
  • Resident Clifford Reed of Mayo Florida who was a decorated Army Captain.
  • Staff member Susie Bateman of Gaffney, South Caroline who has served in our facility for over 32 years.
  • Volunteer Jackie Cox who has served our residents with heart and passion for over 12 years.

Lee Elliott, administrator, said of this event, “It was an honor to celebrate the lives of just a few of those who have given of themselves in service to others.  Seeing and hearing of the accomplishments of these few was a humbling and inspiring experience.  I am also proud of my staff for putting together this fantastic event.”

This year’s Hall of Fame Café was an elegant event filled with flickering candlelight, gourmet food, delightful desserts, and a beautiful vocal and guitar ballad.  Everyone at Signature HealthCARE of Greeneville was proud to invest so much into creating a memorable event for our inductees.  It was a privilege to recognize and honor such distinguished individuals for their decades of service and contributions to our surrounding communities.

Signature HealthCARE of Greeneville gathered together with about eight other regional facilities in Mountain City to enjoy a masquerade ball.  Our facility chose the them of Old MacDonald and his animals for the event.  Staff and residents alike had a blast as they enjoyed some upbeat music, delicious BBQ, and dancing.  At the end of the night awards were passed out for best costume, theme, centerpiece, team spirit, and other things.  We were pleased to have all of our residents come away with an award for the evening.  We look forward to next year’s event and the fun and memories that it will bring.

Old-timer’s day celebrates some of the simple pleasures of the “good ole’ days” such as delicious home made baked goods, hand knit hats, scarves, and baby booties, and of course hand churned apple butter cooked in traditional copper kettles.  This is one of our favorite yearly events that brings us back to the importance of enjoying the simple things of life and reminds us that sometimes the best things in life do take time and patience to prepare.

Four of our residents represented our facility in a regional corporate Senior Olympics event held in Pigeon Forge.  They enjoyed a day filled with Western themed events that challenged both mind and body.  Events included calf roping, sharp shooting, barrel racing, speed dressing, horse shoes, trivia, spelling, and root beer pong.  Our residents put up some tough competition and even came away with some medals.  We are proud of all the hard work they put in to preparing for the day and judging upon how much fun they had we know they are certainly looking forward to next year’s event.
