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.
Signature Healthcare Center of Waterford celebrated National CNA week June 13th through June 17th.
Monday opened up with a breakfast for all the CNAs, from those on the midnight shift all the way to those on the morning shift. The remainder of the week was marked with delicious luncheons each day, followed by afternoon games and activities for our CNAs on every floor. A winner for each floor was chosen and announced for each activity! Activities included musical chairs, hula hooping, limbo dancing, and hot potato.
The events culminated on Friday with an ice-cream social event where raffles were drawn and prizes were handed out. Additionally, the spirituality department handed out 104 coffee mugs filled with spiritual and edible goodies.
We want to bless out CNAs abundantly. The chaplain was on hand to bless the many hands that work in the center so that they might bring quality healthcare to all of our patients and residents.
On Wednesday, June 22, 2016, Signature Healthcare of Waterford Center took five of its senior male patients out to the ballpark in downtown Miami to watch the Florida Marlins play against the Atlanta Braves. Everyone was eager to arrive, and once inside the park the residents even enjoyed a delicious lunch while taking in the game. “One, two, three strikes!, He’s out!” exclaimed Lucio, one of our residents, when he witnessed the end of the game and cheer on the Marlins who won!
The field trips to parks, malls, and other venues are part of the center’s activities to give the residents a chance to enjoy life outside the center. A future trip to the mall and a museum is forthcoming.
