A person-centered approach is important to us at Morgantown Care & Rehab when we consider our quality of life programming. Elder Randy Felty and his wife Brenda tell us how important our monthly men’s poker night is to them.
News & Updates
The smell of buttered popcorn filled the air as Morgantown Care & Rehab joined up with elders from Signature HealthCARE of Hartford Rehab & Wellness Center. Today we stoked imaginations as we watched Disney’s The Jungle Book at the newly operated Cinema 33 in Hartford, Kentucky. New owner, Luke Burden, was a gracious host to our group of elders and stakeholders who all thoroughly enjoyed the outing and movie.
After our escapades at the movies, elders from Morgantown enjoyed lunch at KFC and it was finger-lick’n good! Elders kept commenting on the way back home about how much they enjoyed the outing and how good it was to be out and about on such a beautiful day.
To sum up the experience and the reason why Morgantown Care & Rehab does things like this, hear what elder JC Taylor shared. “I never dreamed that living in a nursing home I would get to do all the things we do.”
On Friday, May 20th, Morgantown Care & Rehab celebrated National EMS Week with a breakfast for all our local EMTs, paramedics, dispatchers, and first-responders.
In 1974, President Gerald Ford authorized EMS Week to celebrate EMS practitioners and the important work they do in our nation’s communities. At that time, EMS was a new profession, and EMS practitioners had only just started to be recognized as a critical component of emergency medicine and the public health safety net.
In Butler County today we know that our EMS is an essential public function and a vital component of the medical care community. Without a local hospital, we are often dependent on emergency medical services to treat and transport our local population. On any given day our EMS personnel helps save lives by responding to medical emergencies, including heart attacks, difficulty breathing, a fall or accident, strokes, drug overdoses, and other acute illnesses. Our local EMS team may provide both basic and advanced medical care at the scene of an emergency and en route to a hospital. In some of the most difficult moments that our Butler County community faces, our EMS practitioners care for people’s medical needs and show caring and compassion to the patients in their care.
For all this and much more we are thankful for our EMS team! Morgantown Care & Rehab appreciates all that you do for our community!
Today Elder Ruth Cowan shared about how she first learned to crochet and what it means to her to teach others how at MCRC.

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.
The elders at Morgantown Care and Rehab Center have watched as our new kittens have grown and have enjoyed getting some playtime in with them each day!
