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!









“I Love Boston” says Jack Endicott one of three elders from Prestonsburg HealthCare who went on vacation on August 22nd -26th. Along with Jack were Opal Gibson, and Frank Whitt, they flew out of Louisville, KY and made their way to Boston, Massachusetts.  During their time in Boston they had the opportunity to visit many historic and fun filled places. At beautiful Fenway Park they watched the beloved Red Sox and enjoyed all the ballpark food they could eat. They took a pleasant ferry ride across historic Boston Harbor with lunch at WahlBurgers Restaurant seen on the A/E TV Show Wahlburgers.  The group, which consisted of elders and stakeholders from five different homes, toured downtown Boston and visited the 75,000 square foot New England Aquarium.  The highlight for some was having dinner at the Cheers Diner made famous on the hit TV show “Cheers”.  The trio of elders that went all said it was the time of their life and a memory they will never forget.

What does holistic care mean? Is it just another fancy word to throw around and brag about, or is it a revolutionary concept in long term care? We firmly believe that it is a groundbreaking idea that will help shape and mold the landscape of healthcare for the rest of time. This new approach will allow for a greater bond between our stakeholders and elders and allow us to give more concentrated care where it is needed. It will give each stakeholder the chance to focus on a small group of elders and assist them with the daily activities of life. This extraordinary process will open up a new avenue of care and most importantly, it will allow our elders to give as well as receive care. When we think of a long term care home, we often imagine the elders receiving the care only, but this view is sorely mistaken. The residents become so involved in the lives of the stakeholders, that they show care for them daily. They mourn when we mourn, they laugh when we laugh, and our lives are so ensconced together they become inseparable. That truly is the meaning of Holistic Care – loving and caring for each other, elder and stakeholder alike.  ​Matt and Bonnie

A favorite activity, of many families on a warm summer evening, is to sit outside on the porch and reminisce of days gone by. To remember the impact and memories left to us by those who have moved on before us. O how sweet and powerful those stories can be, but we rarely ever look at both sides of the story. We think of the memories we have of that person, and never stop to think of the memories that they had of us. We were reminded of this fact at the memorial service of man we held in the highest regard, Philman Mitchell. We had mourned our loss and made our memories of him known, but not until his memorial service did we consider our impact on him. To see the pictures that he had kept of our elders and stakeholders. Our memories of Mr. Mitchell will last a lifetime in our hearts, but let us also let his life be a reminder to us. A reminder that our actions will make a memory for someone else, no matter how trivial it may seem. It’s the small things that make a difference in the lives of the ones we love.  ​











The rain rolled in as a group of elders from Prestonsburg HealthCare arrived in Winchester, KY. They had travelled to Winchester to compete in the annual Signature Senior Olympics. Games, food, and prizes awaited them as they anxiously prepared for competition. With events ranging from Frisbee Throws to American Trivia they were put to the test both physically and mentally.  All of the activities highlighted a Signature Elder Vacation, varying from Disney World, The Beach, a Nashville vacation, and a trip to Boston. This year the group from Prestonsburg has chosen to go to Boston. During their time in Boston they will see a Red Sox game and tour the historic downtown area along with a variety of other activities.


Webster dictionary defines compassion as: a sympathetic consciousness of others’ distress together with a desire to alleviate it. We here at Prestonsburg HealthCare see that definition not just as a description of a word, but as a description of a person. Kelly Wright embodies and portrays all the characteristics of compassion. Shooting past the normal barriers and breaking new ground in HealthCare one elder at a time. Few employees embrace the word compassion like Kelly Wright. She is a role model for many and her level of compassion should be the mark that we all aim for.
