Residents and Stakeholders gathered on this crisp fall day to join Mr. Turkey for a trot around the building. The Quality of Life department provided hats and feathers as a nice touch for the residents. Hot cocoa and cookies were ready and waiting as well. Thanks to all that participated and to Jessie for being the turkey that lead the way.

Elaine received a note today from a grateful family member:
Dear Elaine, I just wanted to sincerely thank you for loving and serving mom…I believe you are hugely responsible for mom adjusting so well to SHC…sh needed more physical and social interaction. We felt like the Lord opened the doors for mom to out live her last days here in Lafayette. You have been so kind…thanks for everything you continue to do… and she loves Avery (the cat) too! In Jesus love, Sherry Caldwell
SHC of Lafayette has joined the ranks of the James 1:27 Mission Project. We are currently working with one community volunteer and one community chaplain for our facility. We are praying that God will send many more volunteers our way. We have sent out 30 letters to churches and organizations in the surrounding area in hopes of enlisting more volunteers with more letters to follow. Please pray with us for a community that sees the need and responds to it.
We were all encouraged to wear pink today in support of awareness for breast cancer. Our team looked great and embraced the cause! Even the maintenance department joined the effort! Great job, you guys are awesome!
We are encouraging all staff and residents to wear pink this Friday, October 20, 2017 to raise awareness for breast cancer. Your participation and encouragement in this effort shows support for the many that have suffered or have walked through the journey themselves or with a loved one.
Signature HealthCARE of Lafayette invited our residents outside to enjoy the spring weather. We created some bird feeders and planted some hearty pansies in clay pots for them to take back to their rooms. Children were members of our volunteer team! This is always a welcome treat for our resident family.
Signature HealthCARE hosted its 2nd Annual CNA Olympics on October 29, 2015, in Muncie, In. Participating olympians represented Signature HealthCARE of Bluffton, Signature HealthCARE of Bremen, Signature HealthCARE of Fort Wayne, Signature HealthCARE of Muncie, Signature HealthCARE of Parkwood, and Signature HealthCARE of Terre Haute.
The inaugural CNA Olympics were planned by SHC of Parkwood’s DON, Amy Buckley, who hosted our event last year. It was such a huge success that it was held once again.
This year’s events included Bed Making, Wearing Isolation Precautions Equipment, a Sacred Six Quiz, Wheelchair Assembly and Disassembly, TED Hose Application, and a Mystery Event which ended up as Filling Water Cups.
The Team Relay Event included dressing a mannequin, making a bed with a mannequin in the bed, assembling and disassembling a wheelchair, and reciting all of the Sacred Six Value names.
Many thanks to Ben Wells, Haley Arnett, and SHC of Muncie for hosting it this year. Congratulations to all of our participants! What a great way to showcase our Urban Indiana CNAs!
