Art Gallery 2014 Cruikshank

Eugene ‘Geno’ Cruikshank was admitted to Signature HealthCARE of Cherokee Park in mid-March with the hopes of regaining his strength so he could return home to help care for his loving wife, Clara, who has Alzheimer’s.

Mr. Cruikshank was a gentleman who everyone got to know quickly. He had a quick wit and a great smile, and he always had a genuine story to tell. While working with our occupational therapy department, Geno let us know that he had not picked up a sketch pad in over two years due to his health. Mr. Cruikshank is a former art teacher and community supporter of the arts in all mediums.

A patient from Signature HealthCARE of Cherokee Park was the lucky winner of tickets to last weekend’s ‘Battle of the Bluegrass’ in Lexington!

Signature held drawings for tickets to the game, for both patients and employees. Employees were able to purchase chances to win tickets to the game as part of a raffle for the Compassion Fund, a nonprofit organization operated by Signature that benefits employees and other community members in need.

SHC of Cherokee Park QOL Director Jaime Larimore said patient Barbara Wexler was so excited when she got word she had won the tickets that she hit the call light button to notify the staff.

“We had a wonderful day,” Larimore said. “It was both our first time going to a UK/U of L game. What a fantastic way to get up close and personal with tradition and rich Kentucky culture. Barbara Wexler and myself want to thank Signature HealthCARE for providing such an exciting opportunity.”

Five Signature HealthCARE centers recently visited the Kentucky State Fair. SHC of East Louisville, South Louisville, Cherokee Park, Trimble County and Spencer County all attended – about 50 patients and staff members in total. We had a great time, ate good food and saw the most amazing exhibits of quilts and cakes.

We all met up in the South wing at the Food Court for lunch and took the group pictures there. Our patients were very excited about eating the ‘bad’ food, like hot dogs, steak sandwiches and cotton candy. We spent a lot of time looking at the handmade items – especially the quilts. We saw a few cows and sheep, and tasted samples of the country ham and sorghum.
