On May 13th, our elders traveled to Panama City Beach for our yearly Elder Vacation. Elder Thomas got to meet Mayor Gayle Oberst. This was also his first flight. He said he really enjoyed being on the beach. Quality of Life Director Robin Cantara, and her amazing quality of life team, traveled with the elders for this fun vacation!
We had a Super Bowl Blow Out Party here at The Bridge at Ridgely. The elders all pulled for their favorite team and feasted on all of their favorite munchies!
Signature HealthCARE received the citation in the ‘Facilitating Organizational Change’ category for its Executive CNA Program. The award recognizes organizations for results achieved through the use of practices and solutions from the entire scope of talent development.

Watching a loved one die is one of the most agonizing experiences that a family can go through. The hardest part is caring for a loved one who doesn’t even know you as you witness their fast and steady decline. The number of Americans with Alzheimer’s disease and related forms of dementia will hit record highs as the baby boomers age. Around 5.2 million Americans are diagnosed with this deadly disease which includes 200,000 individuals younger than 65 years of age and older. It is estimated that by the year 2050 that the number of people 65 and older with Alzheimer’s may triple the national rates of today, raising numbers from 5 million to 16 million. Alzheimer’s disease attacks women twice as often as men.
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.
