Signature HealthCARE Hall of Fame Inducts Over 350 Individuals

The Hall Of Fame is an innovative Quality of Life Program developed by Signature HealthCARE designed to honor the lives and accomplishments of our patients, stakeholders, volunteers, and others who have had such an impact on our centers, communities, and nation.

On October 9, 2014, 87 Signature HealthCARE centers across the southeast and midwest will induct over 350 distinguished individuals into the Hall of Fame, in local ceremonies featuring celebrity speakers and presentations about the inductees lives and accomplishments.

This event, which we believe is the largest and only of its kind, is an opportunity for us to extend gratitude to those who have given so much to our centers, communities and country. They come from all walks of life – war veterans and feminist icons to inventors, professional athletes, philanthropists and much more. We are proud to count them among those we serve and can only continue to benefit from their presence. The Hall of Fame ceremonies are a special day to hold them up as shining examples of human potential.

Beauty Abounds during “National Nursing Home Week”

For a day that involved a lot of “Crazy Hair,” we were thankful that the end of the day resulted in these beautiful Glamour Shots. Women donned their tiaras and boas, and “men of mystery” appeared to have their Glamour Shots taken, and glamorous they truly were.

“Crazy Hair Day”

Anchor Care patients and staff kicked off “National Nursing Home Week” with Crazy Hair Day! Patients and staff went all out with some creative hairstyles. We also enjoyed ice cream, posed for glamour shots, and enjoyed a lot of smiles.

Celebration of Life

Patients, family members and staff gathered recently to celebrate those who have passed on. With fond memories and treasured words of endearment, Chaplain Basha Zackavich and Activities Director Sylvester Byrd commemorated 13 patients who all touched our lives in their own unique and endearing way.

A video montage was shared, along with the song “Legacy” by Nicole Nordeman, with all in attendance as we viewed many pictures of the times we’ve shared with them here at Anchor Care & Rehabilitation Center.

“I want to leave a legacy, how will they remember me?
Did I choose to love? Did I point to You enough
To make a mark on things? I want to leave an offering
A child of mercy and grace who blessed Your Name
Unapologetically and leave that kind of legacy.”

“What’s Cooking in OT?”

Several patients gathered in Occupational Therapy to make Apple-Pear Cobbler.

A great example of teamwork resulted in a delicious dessert! Yum, yum.

Health Talk: Strokes, and what to watch for.

Our Director of Nursing Amy Beach, RN instructed our patients on the topic of strokes at this month’s Health Talk. Each month, Amy spends time with our patients, answering questions and addressing concerns about health topics that affect many people. Our patients have been enjoying the open forum where they can ask questions and get straight answers about the month’s topics. We haven’t been able to determine who enjoys it more! We are blessed to have a talented staff of nurses, CNA’s and therapists who work side by side to provide top-quality care to our patients.

Mmmm, good!!

A “Stakeholder Appreciation Cookout” was hosted by our new administrator, José Arroyo with the help of several department managers. Many thanks to our team, who work so hard every day to make Anchor Care one of the top rehab and skilled nursing facilities in our nation!

Thanks again, José!
