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.

“I am having a great experience and very pleased with my stay.  The therapists are excellent!  All around, excellent!”

—R.T., patient at Signature HealthCARE of Cherokee Park

 

“This is a fantastic facility, therapy and everything, and things they do really make a difference. I will only come here for rehab after being in hospital, because I like it so much.”

” I’m having surgery on my other hip soon, and I’d like to come back here again for my therapy because the therapists have done such a good job.”

A resident 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 residents 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 resident 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 residents 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 Elders 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.

BRAVO!

THANK you for the amazing Progressive Dinner last night. Above you will see a picture of a team of A PLAYERS that I’m so blessed to work with at SHC! I was in awe of the entire experience! You were an amazing team that I’m so proud to work with at SHC. To help prepare the food, we tapped Mike Jewellson, who was simply amazing and represented Cherokee Park in an amazing way.

Signature HealthCARE of Cherokee Park (formerly Four Courts at Cherokee Park) last week held an open house to celebrate the nursing and rehab center’s recent renovation and the grand opening of its Excelerated CARE unit.

The unit is designed to meet the needs of short-term patients with plans to return to their own homes. Because they have distinctly different needs and schedules, long-term residents live separately in the building’s Linker Unit.

Glenn Knight, Executive Director for the St. Matthews Area Chamber of Commerce, attended to celebrate the opening of the unit with a formal ribbon cutting. Signature President and CEO Joe Steier welcomed guests and kicked off the celebration.

Food was prepared by SHC of Cherokee Park staff, and attendees enjoyed a tour of the center.

“It was a fantastic night,” said SHC of Cherokee Park Administrator Nicolle Meade. “This was a great opportunity to showcase not only the beauty of the facility, but also the clinical footprint we are making in the medical community. We work to offer a one-of-a-kind customer experience, caring for body, mind and spirit.”
