Thank you for your support!

YOU ROCK!
There is no rock like our God. (1 Samuel 2:2)

Dear Families,

With each new day, our team here at Orange Park is very grateful that you entrust us with caring for your loved ones. Though joyful and rewarding, each day is of its own. There are taskful days when training or meetings are taking place. There are days that are also fun-filled and recreational; then there are those challenging days when we could use an extra boost. And that’s when you always seem to be there at just the right times, blessing us with your words of encouragement, as well as your patience, and understanding. We truly appreciate you and your random acts of kindness.
Families, of our precious residents, You Rock, and thank you for rocking with Signature HealthCARE of Orange Park.

Happy Father’s Day!

My father taught me and said; let thine heart hold on to my words.
Proverbs 4:4

Dear friends and families, our team here at Signature would like to thank you for entrusting your fathers into our care.
It is truly awesome to be a part of the lives of men who have served our country, who were a part of building bridges, vehicles and houses, and even aiding in keeping our communities safe. Yet, with all else that they have done, they are not just veterans, retired laborers, and our residents; more importantly they are great fathers who made great sacrifices and have made significant differences in the lives of their children. Even now they are still living meaningful and purposeful lives.
Not only are we grateful to be able to care for them, but we are also blessed to be able to learn from them. Happy Father’s Day from the Signature HealthCARE family of Orange Park to yours!

Spring Forth

Create in me a clean heart, O God. Renew a right spirit within me.
Psalm 51:10

Every spring, many Christians from different denominations celebrate Lent Season, which is a time of prayer, fasting, and repentance forty six days before Easter excluding Sundays.
During this time of season, dedication to prayer is of central importance. When we spend time alone with God in prayer; His spirit comforts us, directs us, and shapes our character. Prayer moves God to give us renewed ways of thinking so that we can be successful in making the best decisions for ourselves and for those whom He has entrusted into our care.
Fasting is also essentially important and does not necessarily mean to give up food; but to give up anything that we often desire. Fasting reminds us that we can live without these things, it also reminds us of the significance of expressing empathy and compassionate towards those who are less fortunate in their overall well-being.

Sharing is Caring

One of the great things about Signature HealthCARE of Orange Park is that we get the great opportunity of having local college students be a part of our facility during their clinical trainings.
Not only are they appreciated by our residents and nursing team, but it affords me the privilege to share with them the value and role of a Chaplain in long-term care and rehabilitation facilities.
Sharing the importance of Signature’s HealthCARE’s Spirituality Pillar with the nursing students allows each of us to learn and bring awareness to how we can better enrich the lives of our residents. Sharing is caring!

Christmas Inspirational

“Thanks be to God for His gift that is too wonderful for words.”
2 Corinthians 9:15

The holiday season is a time of year when special days are celebrated all over the world. Celebrations are expressed in various ways: cards are mailed, gifts are exchanged, family and friends gather for special parties and dinners, and vigils are held. Though these are all wonderful expressions of love – we must not lose sight of why we celebrate the holiday called Christmas.

In being grateful that God sent His only son, baby Jesus, as the perfect gift to this world as an expression of His love for mankind, I am also grateful to the Lord for sending me to Signature HealthCare to help care for our wonderful residents.
Truly, this is my favorite time of year for being at home and enjoying my family; however, the residents are also a part of my family and I enjoy being in their home in our facilities spending time with them as well.

How Can I Know What’s Best For My Parent?

Working here at Signature HealthCare has given me a great opportunity to listen to patients express their hearts and concerns about their elderly parents.

If you are not sure what decisions to make or what steps to take; begin by accepting the aging process and try to see the disabilities of aging through your parents eyes. As we age; we will experience weaknesses in our physical well-being such as loss of hearing, poor vision, memory loss, arthritis, and other physical limitations.

Help your parents accept their physical failings and limitations with creativity and humor and even assist in preparing them for death.
