The accreditation, presented by independent accreditor Providigm, LLC, demonstrates that the facility is continually assessing patients’ quality of life with regard to concerns such as pain, dignity, respect for patient choice, and quality of care problems such as whether there are enough staff to meet a patient’s needs, weight loss, infections, rehabilitation following acute injury or illness, and prevention of readmissions to hospital.

When I got here in June, Signature of Marietta had already been partners with Second Wind Dreams, a non-profit organization with a mission ‘to change the perception of aging through the fulfillment of dreams and the offering of innovative educational opportunities to caregivers and communities.’

I was contacted by Krystle Hillery, a ‘dream weaver’ for SWD, and we started asking patients about various things  they would love to do if possible (another patient was sent to the Atlanta Aquarium, etc.) Krystle emailed to let me know about the Braves game. I suggested our Albert because he has been a lifelong baseball fan and is a huge Braves fan.

From there, we just worked it out until it all came together. His brother, John Umphlett, also attended and was able to spend a very special night with Albert. Albert stayed until well into the 8th inning and was beaming the entire time – he did not take his eyes off the field! He was even taken out on the field to meet second baseman Phil Gosselin, who gave him a hat and shirt. When we reunited, Albert was so excited he could barely get the words out! When I told Albert he was on TV, he grinned from ear to ear.

We got back to the facility after 11 and I was whooped, but not Albert. He asked, “Do I have to go to bed now?” It was a wonderful night, and I feel so blessed to have been able to be there for it.

– Melissa Nelcha, Quality of Life Director

Mr. Newell admitted to SHC of Marietta with severe osteoarthritis and knee pain. When he first arrived he could barely stand without severe pain. After several weeks of consistent physical and occupational therapy,  Mr. Newell  was able to ambulate with minimal assistance using his rolling walker.  During my interview with Mr. Newell,  he expressed that he was 90 years old and had lived a long life.  I could tell by the glare  in his eyes that he had a testimony to share.  He went on to explain how being here was a rotten situation but how he couldn’t have chosen a better place to do therapy.
