Innovative Quality of Life Program Embraces the Power of Art
Louisville, Ky., July 28, 2017 – Art has the power to move people at every age, and Signature HealthCARE’s Reflect N Us quality of life program encourages patients and residents to flex their creative arms. This year’s Reflect N Us art gallery features 700 pieces of art, which families, community members and more have voted on their favorite piece.
The 2017 Reflect N Us winner is an intricate sewing project from Shirley, a resident at Chesapeake Shores in Lexington Park, Maryland. Shirley first started the sewing project three years ago for her daughter. With the help of the staff at Chesapeake Shores, Shirley picked up her crochet needle to finish the project.
“Reflect N Us empowers Signature HealthCARE residents to touch, imagine and create a piece of art that is meaningful to them. Every year the unique talents of our residents inspires our staff company-wide,” Anna Bass-Wilson, Quality of Life Director for Signature HealthCARE, said.
The online art gallery features artwork created by the residents of Signature HealthCARE’s 148 locations. Art submissions include these categories: drawing, group art projects, jewelry, painting, photography, poetry, mixed media, sculpture and pottery and sewing and quilting.
The Reflect N Us art gallery at Signature HealthCARE began in 2013 and has grown to a gallery showcasing thousands of art pieces. Winners are recognized based on overall votes and votes in each category.
