Signature Healthcare at Jackson Manor in Annville, Kentucky, joined the Eden Registry on January 23, 2018.  This small rural community takes creating home very seriously by making sure that everyone that lives and works there has a strong sense of well-being. There is a very welcoming feeling when you come to visit. This is because relationships, family, love, and kindness are central to the way the employee care partners support the Elders’ daily lives. Employee care partners have consistent assignments and take special care to get know and honor the simple pleasures of each of the 51 Elders that live there. Each day begins at a nice, slow pace with hot coffee and a nutritious breakfast.

Most mornings when you come into the dining room, you will see a men’s group telling stories and enjoying each other’s company. Afternoons are spent in the courtyard where all members of the care partner team (Elders, families, and employees) can be found visiting with each other and enjoying the gorgeous scenery or gardening in the raised flower beds. No two days are the same, as they enjoy spontaneous activities like popping popcorn, listening to music, or playing card games in the day-room. Elders and employee care partners take time each day talking, telling stories, and sharing in each other’s lives.  Each summer they look forward to hosting a summer camp for the employee care partners’ children. They also enjoy walking across the street to go fishing in the pond.  Elders are encouraged to participate in the Resident Council that meets monthly to discuss with the leadership team the goals and desires of the folks that live there. Everyone has voice and an opportunity to be recognized and heard. Stop by for a visit, grab a snack at the old General Store and be sure to say hello to their pet cat Peanut Butter.  She loves to snuggle!
