In the words of Signature Healthcare’s President and CEO….”Today–and everyday–we are blessed to serve 1, 100 residents who help defend our country.  We are also blessed to work side by side with 750 stakeholders who are working veterans with the Revolution to change healthcare in our country.  Each of these leaders made the ultimate sacrifice so we can have a three pillar based organization where we pray and serve together!”

This morning the residents celebrated and recognized the veterans in their home and community.  MCRC would like to wish everyone a Happy Veteran’s Day and thank all those who served.

The party continued throughout the next day as MCRC celebrated the lives of this year’s Hall of Fame inductees.  The residents and stakeholders were invited to a VIP reception that featured the Hall of Fame slideshow presentations and an enormous amount of food and festivities.


Musical group, The Script featuring Will I Am, encourages listeners to, “Don’t wait for luck.  Dedicate yourself and you can find yourself standing in the Hall of Fame.”  I challenge you to ask yourself, “What is your dedication that may induct you into a Hall of Fame?”  For many of us, this may come as a challenge; however, for Morgantown Care and Rehab Center this is a topic that is deeply thought about during the late summer months through October.

On October 15, 2015, Signature Healthcare centers across ten states, including Morgantown Care and Rehab Center, will induct over 500 distinguished individuals into Hall of Fame through local ceremonies that features speakers, performances, dinner, and presentations about the inductee’s lives and accomplishments.

The Hall Of Fame ceremony is an innovative Quality of Life Program developed by Signature Healthcare, which is designed to honor the lives and accomplishments of our elders, stakeholders, volunteers, and others who have had an impact on our home and community.  Whether one’s accomplishments are in the form of civic leadership, military service, entrepreneurship, charity work, the arts, or any other type of groundbreaking work, it’s all about celebrating life.

The Hall of Fame event is believed to be the largest and only of its kind as we present live broadcast simultaneously across the country from all Signature Healthcare homes.  It is an opportunity for us to extend gratitude to those who have given so much to our homes, communities, and country. Our inductees come from all walks of life such as war veterans, feminist’s icons, inventors, professional athletes, philanthropists, and much more. We are proud to count them among those we serve and can only continue to benefit from their presence. The Hall of Fame ceremonies are a special day to hold them up as shining examples of human potential.

This year Morgantown Care and Rehab Center will inducted seven inductees into the Hall of Fame.  They included resident Ernest Board (in memoriam), elder Joyce Annis, elder James Hunter, stakeholders Ina Johnson, Helen Phelps, and Carol Johnson, and community leader Garry McKinney.  Our event was held on October 15, 2015 at 6:00 pm at the First Baptist Church Fellowship Hall.  We enjoyed celebrating the life of these inductees, and thank them for their outstanding contributions to our home and community.

The dietary department at Morgantown Care and Rehab Center is an outstanding group of men and women.  This group works hard everyday to ensure that our residents are being served their meals, according to dietary standards.  We would like to thank them for their hard work and determination in their efforts!

Imagine picking up the trash of over 122 people more than twice a day, mopping a home that stands three stories tall, and washing, drying, and folding laundry for 122 people for eight hours a day, only to go home and care for your own home.  Just thinking about these tasks can make one feel overwhelmed and exhausted in today’s fast paced society.  However, for the environmental services department, which includes housekeeping, laundry, and maintenance, this is just a glimpse of their typical day.

This is why Morgantown Care and Rehab Center spent a week celebrating National Environmental Services Appreciation Week.  From September 13-19th, Morgantown Care and Rehab Center sought out special activities to help take away just a few of the everyday tasks.  The events started on Monday, where fellow stakeholders assisted in housekeeping tasks such as tidying up their work and common areas, assisting with taking out the trash in elder’s rooms, wiping down over the bed tables and handrails, and leaving notes of appreciation daily.  On Friday, the environmental services department had a final celebration at Charles Black City Park.  The celebration included a picnic lunch, deserts made from fellow stakeholders, tokens of appreciation, and lot of fun and laughter while enjoying the sunny day.

While this week reflected upon the hard work of our environmental services department we ask that you continue to recognize the hard work of these stakeholders.  For them, the job is never done.  There is always something to straighten up, something to wipe off, an area that could look just a little better, or simply a little extra time to stop and talk with an elder while cleaning up their room.  Due to this, Morgantown Care and Rehab Center requests that if you see any of our wonderful, hardworking environmental services stakeholders, take a moment to stop and say “thank you.”  Their work is not unnoticed, and a simple thank you can go a long way.

Morgantown Care and Rehab Center rocked the block with their annual Neighborhood Block Party.  The event occurs each year, with the goal to show support and appreciation to all the stakeholders in our home.  The event kicked off in the afternoon with a cookout, inflatables, face painting, a silent auction, and games for the kids.  Stakeholders, elders, and families gathered for the exciting time, which was concluded with a live band and fireworks.  Whether you jumped yourself silly, danced the night away, or caught some great prizes in our silent auction it was a night to remember.

As the school year is in full swing and students are getting settled in, it was only natural that Morgantown Care and Rehab Center follow suit.  To keep informed and active in our community Morgantown Care and Rehab Center kicked off the school year by holding their very own Mr. and Mrs. Morgantown Care and Rehab Center.  Stakeholders and elders in our home spent two weeks voting for the candidates who would be nominated and then voted on the elders that were most qualified to be crowned the King and Queen.  This year’s winners were King James Hunter and Queen Ruby Humphrey.  The elders were crowned the winner and provided a sash and flowers as their prize.  To celebrate the victory the elders and stakeholders finished off with cake and punch.  A great time was had by all.

Excitement comes on the wings of many new announcements; it certainly did for us recently.  Although we hated to lose veteran Administrator, Logan Midkiff, it was with a positive attitude that we welcomed Amy Phelps into the position.  Amy is a seasoned trouper in the health care field, and we are so fortunate to have her services.  She believes that “there is no better job than caring for elders and providing for them a better quality of life-especially in my home community.”  Amy, who is a resident of Morgantown, is a mother of two sons, Aiden and Isaac, and is married to Quentin Phelps.  She graduated from Butler County High School and later from WKU, with a degree in Health Care Administration.  For the past six years, Amy worked as the administrator at Magnolia Village in Bowling Green, KY , has experience at Hopkins Health Care in Woodburn, was the Activity Director at Edmonson County Health Care, and ran an Adult Day Care for two years.  She has always had her career centered around the elderly, and is efficient and a well-trained professional.  We would like to welcome Amy to our home and ask that you stop by and make her feel welcome.
