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.

Expansion. Adaptation. Innovation.
These words, in many ways, defined 2014 for Signature HealthCARE. The Revolution brought our total number of locations to 125. We welcomed new centers to the family and took pivotal steps to position SHC as an integrated care network capable of meeting health care needs across the full spectrum of care. We expanded into new business lines while continuing to enhance and invest in existing service offerings.
This Veterans Day, Signature HealthCARE would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all of our nation’s military veterans, and those still actively serving. We especially want to thank all of our residents and stakeholders who served our country.
Happy Veterans Day from the Signature family to yours.
For those unable to attend a SHC Hall of Fame ceremony, we’re bringing the celebration to you with four sites that were selected to have their ceremonies broadcast live via our website.
On October 9, 2014, 99 Signature HealthCARE centers across the southeast and midwest will induct over 400 distinguished individuals into the Hall of Fame, in local ceremonies featuring celebrity speakers and presentations about the inductees lives and accomplishments.
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.
