Annual Wheelchair Super Bowl Brings Neighborly Competition
Louisville, Ky. – February 14, 2018 – While the NFL hosted the Eagles and Patriots at the Super Bowl, elders from over 10 Signature HealthCARE locations competed in the Wheelchair Super Bowl. The event, which Signature has held for six years, brings stakeholders from every department, Quality of Life, Therapy, Dietary, and more, together.
Just like friends, family and neighbors gathering to watch the Super Bowl, Signature HealthCARE elders, stakeholders and families participated in Wheelchair Super Bowl events. At Signature HealthCARE of Sunrise Manor, the halftime entertainment featured Justin himself…Justin Carwile, administrator at Sunrise Manor. And at Signature Healthcare of Hart County, stakeholders put on a halftime show with music from Bruno Mars.
“From the preparation of the event, creating signs and décor, putting together the halftime shows, learning the plays with the therapy team and having the nursing staff get involved in teaching Elders cheers and the Elders teaching us cheers from their day, it appeals to most everyone. Anyone who wants to join in the fun is always invited,” Roni Anderson, Regional Quality of Life Director at Signature HealthCARE said.
Wheelchair Super Bowl for one elder was a special day when he presented the winning certificate to the administrator. After scoring 10 field goals and winning, Mr. Ivey of Signature HealthCARE at the Courtyard said, “It’s the most fun I’ve had all year!”
At Signature, quality of life is approached with innovative thinking and an infusion of fresh ideas. Because of Signature’s unique approach, Wheelchair Super Bowl is just one of many one-of-a-kind Quality of Life programs.
