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.

Valentine Sweetheart Luncheon

Couples celebrated Valentine’s Day with a Sweetheart Luncheon hosted by the Quality of Life and Medical Records departments. We served pork tenderloin, hash brown casserole, green beans, dinner rolls, and fancy cheesecake. The residents reminisced about their first dates and how they met.

An interesting fact about everyone involved is that they were married in either December or January. Could it be that the longevity of a marriage depends upon the wedding taking place in the winter?

Even after all these years, in sickness and in health, these couples enjoyed telling their stories about their lives together. You could tell by the hand holding and smiles they all were still very much in love.

Ms. Lura Walsh turned 102 years old today!  She enjoyed her chocolate birthday cake, stakeholders singing “Happy Birthday,” and most of all she enjoyed Sonny! Our facility dog brings such joy to our elders. They love for him to do tricks for snacks. Ms. Walsh doesn’t like to get up in a wheelchair, but with some encouragement from Sonny, she got up and went to the beauty shop to get her hair done for her birthday. As she got her hair fixed, she had Sonny doing “high fives” and “shake” for treats. Her giggle was priceless when he took a treat.

When I think about our culture change journey, I am so blessed that we have Sonny for our elders.He brings them joy, security, meaningm and connectedness, which enhances their quality of life.

As we celebrated her birthday, Sonny hopped up in bed and laid his head in her lap.  Ms. Walsh smiled, petted his head, and love filled the room.
