Signature’s Urban Segment has been highlighting different cultures since September 2014 in the Quality of Life department. Every month a country is celebrated with weekly activities representing that specific country. Staff and residents learn about the culture which includes, crafts, food, language, famous landmarks, and learning about the customs and traditions.

China was highlighted during the month of February. Urban Indiana, Urban North, and Urban South celebrated the Chinese New Year on February 19, 2015. Each community in Urban created their own version of the Chinese dragon for their celebration. The top two dragons in each sub-segment were the winners!  The residents are still talking about the celebrations held at their communities.

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, patients and staff alike.

Sharing my Mother’s Day with the patients 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 patients 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 patients 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.
