Prestonsburg, Ky. – Prestonsburg Health Care Center has been named to U.S. News & World Report’s Best Nursing Homes 2014 list.
The news magazine and website each year publishes a list of the best nursing homes in the United States based on data from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). The list is designed, according to U.S. News & World Report, to help the millions of Americans who will spend time in a nursing home this year.
Prestonsburg Health Care Center has received accreditation for 2014 as a skilled nursing facility actively performing Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement activities.
The accreditation, presented by independent accreditor Providigm, LLC, demonstrates that the facility is continually assessing residents’ quality of life with regard to concerns such as pain, dignity, respect for resident choice, and quality of care problems such as whether there are enough staff to meet resident needs, weight loss, infections, rehabilitation following acute injury or illness, and prevention of readmissions to hospital.
Prestonsburg HealthCare just had a day down the tube! Our Summer Camp kids and a few elders were able to go to the water park at the Breaks Interstate Park. Everyone who went had a great time, and one of our elders got to go down a water slide for the first time in his life! He was timid about going down the slide but the look on his face was priceless as he exited the slide. How often we are like that in our own lives, too timid to try something new. We invite all to come stop by our home and try something new for yourselves! If you stop by make sure to ask Jack how cold the water was!
Goldie Conn has been traveling now for 106 years and was celebrated today as family and friends gathered to say “Happy Birthday!”. Among those friends were special visitors Chris and Morgane Stapleton who are in town to perform three sold out shows at the Mountain Arts Center in Prestonsburg. Everyone had an awesome time at Miss Goldie’s party!
Our team would like to say thank you to the Floyd County Times newspaper staff for sharing our story about the new addition of our dining buffet. We are very excited about the changes taking place in our home and are glad that our community is sharing in our joy. We invite you to visit us Monday – Friday during breakfast (6:30am-7:30am) or lunch (11:30am-12:30pm) for only $2 a tray, dine in or carry out. Taste and see the good things that are happening!
As soon as you enter the front door, you know that this is not your typical long term care facility. That is because we strive everyday to make our nursing home just a home. With a culture of resident-centered healthcare services, personalized spirituality and real quality of life initiatives, it is our sincere hope to radically change the landscape of healthcare forever. We are proud to be part of our community.

One favorite activity in our home often seems like a normal, mundane chore to many. However, “normal” is sometimes a blessing. Gathered around the table working toward a common goal, we accomplish breaking a bushel of beans to serve for our monthly “Family Night” gathering. Even greater are the stories that come to mind and are shared among neighbors.
Signature HealthCARE received the citation in the ‘Facilitating Organizational Change’ category for its Executive CNA Program. The award recognizes organizations for results achieved through the use of practices and solutions from the entire scope of talent development.
