A tradition that began last year for me continued this past Mother’s Day in Homestead, FL.   I brought my ten year old daughter, Maddie, and six year old son, Grant, to the facility to hand deliver flowers to the mothers of the Brookwood Gardens team, residents and staff alike.  Sharing my Mother’s Day with the residents and staff is just a simple token of my thankfulness for all the mothers here.  Seeing the joy, gratitude and gratefulness on the faces of these dear members of the Signature HealthCARE family is a wonderful thing to behold, and something that is close to my heart.  It is important to me to give back to the community and instill the values of honoring others and service in my children.   Signature HealthCARE honors those who have dedicated their lives to the caring and wellbeing of others, and nobody represents that ideal more than mothers.

On Saturday, April 19, 2014, Signature HealthCARE of Brookwood Gardens held its annual Easter Celebration. All of the residents and their families were invited to the party, as well as all of the incredible staff members that make up the Brookwood Gardens team. The residents were treated to a cookout, cotton candy, popcorn and snow cones!

There was plenty of fun with a live musician, energetic group of staff dancing and singing, and having a great time. The children celebrated with a bounce house, rock climbing wall, and an Easter egg hunt with over 1,000 eggs! All in all, approximately 140 people attended which really helped make it a great experience.

Thanks to all the staff who participated and helped in one way or another.

Living in a Nursing Home

Mary Kay representative, Mildred Washington, and her family brought holiday cheer to our seniors. Mildred and her family went door to door presenting each of our seniors with a present. The children did a wonderful job putting a big smile on our resident’s faces. Our Seniors are very appreciative – it is the little things – like caring, compassion and companionship that make the biggest difference in their lives. Thank you to Mildred Washington and her family!
