Residents and stakeholders traveled to Winchester, KY to compete in the 2014 Signature HealthCARE Senior Olympics.  Our team, the Signature “Healthketeers” Prestonsburg Club, received a trophy for best overall presentation.  Our homemade t-shirts and banner along with our cheer may have contributed to the win but our team spirit of cooperation certainly sealed the deal!  Resident, Franklin Whitt, also earned an individual Second Place medal in the “Moonshine Pong” category.  Frank was so excited to win his first ever medal!  Congratulations to Frank & all of our Senior Olympians for a job well done!  Most of all, we had fun! “Forever let us hold the banner high!”

Happy birthday!

Prestonsburg HealthCare Center resident Philman Mitchell attended the Tender Heart Daycare Center’s Medical Personnel Day on January 14, 2014. Philman was a special guest at the event along with Prestonsburg Healthcare MDS Coordinator Melissa Howard as the children of the day care learned about blood pressure, heart rate, blood sugar, and respiratory needs. Philman was more than excited to allow the children to listen to his heart beat, and attempt to check his blood pressure. He also explained to the children how he uses his nebulizer and mask.

The children loved having Philman as part of their school, and they have asked that her come back again.  Melissa Howard said that all of the children were tickled with the way that Philman interacted with them and they are eagerly waiting for him to return.

It is the goal of Prestonsburg HealthCare Center for each of the residents to have a meaningful and excited life once they enter the facility. The staff always looks for more ways that each of the residents can interact with children and be part of community activities.
