Dear Family Member, Responsible Party, Signature Community;
I am happy to report that all Golfcrest residents and staff have safely returned home this afternoon from our Palm Beach location!
Full power is restored to 100 percent of all Signature HealthCARE communities. Phone service has returned to most locations, however if you experience difficulty reaching one of our communities, please do not worry. We continue to work diligently to restore all phone and internet service.
In closing, I want to thank you for your prayers and your patience. Weather history was made in Florida 9 days ago; across the entire state, Floridians experienced something epic; Hurricane Irma.
An important message to our community, stakeholders, residents, and family members:
We are closely monitoring Hurricane Matthew as it approaches the state of Florida, and our facility has taken the necessary precautions to prepare for the impending impact of the hurricane. We have initiated our emergency plans and have prepared for the storm in coordination with state and local officials. The health, safety, and well-being of our residents and stakeholders remain our top priority. We have adequate storm supplies on hand and have no plans to evacuate at this time.

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.
Signature’s Urban Segment has been highlighting different cultures since September 2014 in the Quality of Life department. Every month a country is celebrated with weekly activities representing that specific country. Staff and residents learn about the culture which includes, crafts, food, language, famous landmarks, and learning about the customs and traditions.
China was highlighted during the month of February. Urban Indiana, Urban North, and Urban South celebrated the Chinese New Year on February 19, 2015. Each community in Urban created their own version of the Chinese dragon for their celebration. The top two dragons in each sub-segment were the winners! The residents are still talking about the celebrations held at their communities.
Chaplain Larry Glover, Chaplain for Signature Healthcare of Jacksonville, became a published author on Monday, February 23, 2015. His new book entitled “Little Prayers That Work” is a children’s story that helps boys and girls discover the true beauty of prayer.
The prayers focus on a child’s daily experience and concerns that focus on family, friends, the environment, and our leaders. The book is written in rhyme to provide a quick easy way to teach children how to pray, build hope, and encourage them to continue a lifelong habit of prayer. Join us in congratulating Chaplain Glover on his first literary achievement!
