Signature recently held its Hometown Film Festival, an annual event in which nursing home residents create original films to compete for funds to go on vacation. Scripts are largely written by nursing home residents, who also star in the films. In 2014, more than 25 films were submitting, including the one above by Pigeon Forge Care & Rehab.

We hope you enjoy!

IMG_0017 IMG_0065 IMG_0073What is the Eden Alternative?  The shortest answer is that it is a way of bringing culture change to the overall environment of care and living within a community such as Pigeon Forge Care and Rehab Center.  Developed more than 20 years ago by Dr. Bill Thomas from New York, it’s a journey that some centers/communities choose to embark on where the environment and culture is improved for the benefit of the elders living in that community (facility).   It involves changing mindsets and perspectives of how to view the work that has to be done.  It involves asking questions of the elders (residents/patients) of how they want to receive care and how they want to live life.  It involves pets, plants, kids, purposeful and meaningful activities, among other initiatives.  It involves working on ways to help reduce helplessness, boredom, and loneliness that often affects people living outside their regular home.

Sonny, one of the Pigeon Forge cats, is growing up fast. He now has his own desk. Lately he’s had that look in his eye that tells us he may want to invade a couple of small countries very soon.

Bella, a beagle/hound mix who is approximately 10 months old, has recently moved to Pigeon Forge!  She was a facility dog living at another location that is also owned by Signature HealthCARE before she came to us.  They were unable to continue to keep Bella there, but wanted her to have a good home where she could play and have fun with elders, patients, and visitors.  Bella is sweet natured, likes to be petted, and of course enjoys the occasional snack provided to her by various folks!

Pigeon Forge Care and Rehab:

I want to thank all of you for taking care of my grandmother, Janie Brown, for almost six years.

Every person in the facility, employees, CNAs, friends and grandchildren of the nursing home, became her family. She lived longer than most because of the care. Ryan, from Physical Therapy, gave her the last dance. Her friends Joe, Barbara and John – this list goes on.

Pat, the angel that rescued us from silence, saying her last prayer and singing ‘Amazing Grace,’ to Anna, who dressed her to go to the funeral home including a necklace, because Anna knew Janie loved being dressed ‘to the nines.’
