Living Fully in Long-Term Care
Louisville, Ky. – March 27, 2018 – Residents and stakeholders from three states and 13 Signature HealthCARE locations traveled to Washington D.C. on Sunday for an American adventure in the Capitol. The 63 Signature elders and stakeholders took in the sights of the changing of the guard at Arlington Cemetery, a tour of the Capitol building, Lincoln Memorial, Mount Vernon, and other sights of the National Mall.
“The D.C. monuments and museums symbolically show that our country is built by many of us. Our elders were teachers, nurses, pastors, volunteers, and parents, who contributed vibrantly to their neighborhoods, community, and country,” Angie McAllister, Director of Culture Change at Signature HealthCARE, said. “Seeing our elders take in the history and sights at our nation’s capital remind everyone that there is much more life to live at nursing homes.”
The group celebrated one elder’s birthday while in Washington. Ms. Shirley from Signature HealthCARE of Rogersville celebrated her birthday during a family-style dinner in downtown D.C.
Signature HealthCARE first took elders and stakeholders on vacation to Disney World in 2010. Since then, hundreds of Signature elders and stakeholders have traveled together breaking the mold in the long-term care industry.
