John F Kennedy once said “As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” How true of a thought that is for us today! On veteran’s day we often go out of our way to show appreciation to those who have risked it all in service to our country, but what if instead of taking just one day a year to show that appreciation we lived it every single day. The elders in our home who are veterans love getting the card and a moment of appreciation every Veterans Day, yet what if we did them one better. To show them every day by our actions how much there service has meant to us. Join us in doing that and thank a veteran not just today but every day.



The age old question heard often this time of year “Trick or Treat”. We here at Prestonsburg HealthCare just had one of our biggest treats of the year! The annual safe trick or treat and Halloween party. Young and old alike dressed in costumes too, collect candy, play games, and have a great time! With characters from all different kinds of movies, video games, and comic books there was something for everyone!


Trick or Treat night is almost upon us here at Prestonsburg HealthCare, and preparation is in full swing! Candy bags are being made and pumpkins are getting carved. Our annual Halloween Party is just around the corner (it is one of our Elders’ favorite parties); to spend a night dressing up and having fun takes us all back to our childhood. As we all prepare for Trick or Treat remember to be safe and have a great time; we know we will!  Then be sure to look for us Saturday the 31st at the Libraries Harry Potter Party in the Municipal Parking lot in Downtown Prestonsburg.

Prestonsburg HealthCare just took a trip to the pumpkin patch! Smiles were all around as the elders picked the pumpkin that they wanted to take home. The great thing about all the pumpkins is that they were all different. Not one was the same exact size or shape they were all unique! Just as God made every pumpkin unique he made us unique, but all still beautiful in its own way. The elders have plans this week to paint the pumpkin they brought and turn them into their own masterpieces! Take some time to look at all the unique beauty around you and then make it your masterpiece!




Have you ever been drawn to someone’s story? The telling of their accomplishments laid out in such a way that you want to drop whatever it is you are doing and listen? We here at Prestonsburg HealthCare had just that opportunity at our Annual Signature HealthCare Hall of Fame Café. We were blessed to hear of the lives of three elders, (Richard Bowens, Ron Cooley, and Pam Daniels), one stakeholder (Cheryl Lafferty) and a Community Leader (Brent Graden). The Bible tells us in the book of Romans to give honor unto those who deserve it and this group certainly deserves it! Join us in welcoming the 2015 Inductees into the Signature HealthCare Hall of Fame Café.


As the Prestonsburg HealthCare parade float slowly moved down North Lake Drive, it sounded less like a parade and more like Comic Book Convention. That’s because the Prestonsburg HealthCare seniors were dressed as classic superheroes and villains from the pages of your favorite comic book with the likes of: Robin, Wonder Woman, Captain America, Miss America, Batgirl, and the crowd favorite Joker, it was a lineup that the Jenny Wiley festival crowd will never forget! As children, and often as adults, we love to idolize Superheroes. They stand for Truth, Justice and Freedom; something we all should strive for, although we don’t need to track down Batman, Superman, or even Captain America to find someone that stands and have stood for those same principles. We have those people around us every single day; our world would be a better place if every so often we put down the comic books and payed attention to the real superheroes in our lives; the Elders. They are the ones who truly deserve all the fanfare and attention we can give them. Go out of your way to make sure the Elders in your life know that they are the true Superheroes!


Who can’t remember going to Grandmas and seeing that fresh baked apple pie cooling in the window sill! Waiting and watching patiently as it cooled so that you and grandpa could share a slice of pie topped with vanilla ice-cream. We got to experience something just like that this past week as our elders and stakeholders made some beautiful apple pies! The smell filled the building and the laughs and smiles filled the hearts of those around. After they had baked and cooled they were shared with elders all across our home and you could see those memories flooding back. Stop and create some of these memories yourself it’s something you will never forget!






As the fog lifted and the dew settled Prestonsburg HealthCare and Riverview HealthCare took to the Softball Field for a friendly crosstown rivalry!  Elders watched and rooted for their teams as stakeholders left all they could on the field. Hotdogs, soda, and chips were passed around and enjoyed by all.  As is custom with all Major League Sporting events trophies were given to the winning team, but these trophies were taken home by both teams. The smiles, laughs and grins exchanged by the elders are the best trophy anyone could ever win.




Everyone has their favorite fish tales, the story of the big one that got away! Or, the tale of the one that’s hanging on your wall. Sitting around a lake, fishing and telling stories truly is a great experience. Now the only question left to decipher is if Jack really did catch ten fish or if that is another great fish tale!
