Signature Healthcare of Monroe County Rehab and Wellness in Tompkinsville, KY, joined the Eden Registry on August 15, 2017. When visitors come to visit this vibrant home, they often comment on how warm it feels when they walk through the doors. They notice the friendly faces that greet them and the Elders that are happy and engaged. This is just one example of how they work and live in harmony here at Monroe County. The care partner employees take great care in getting to know each other and learn the simple pleasure and interests of each Elder. By doing this, they can offer customized therapeutic activities that are meaningful and fun.

Some Elders enjoy cooking, dancing and listening to music, while others may enjoy being outside gardening. Friday nights around here are a blast, they have a potluck dinner and a Pitch tournament, the winners get a trophy to hold and brag about until the next week’s tournament. Because relationships are so important, extra time and attention is put into making sure that everyone who lives and works here feels connected, supported and well-known. Mealtimes are a great time to gather with neighbors, friends and family and enjoy a hot meal together. If you don’t like what is on the menu, you can pick from the always-available menu. On cold rainy days, they often keep their bellies warm and full with a big bowl of beans and corn bread. Each year, they do several fundraising activities to support Elder vacations and activities. This year, they did pancakes with Mickey and Minnie and a Rock-n-Roll Jamboree, where they raised over $3,500. With all the care and support in this home, it is clear to see why Signature Healthcare at Monroe is thriving with joyful engagement.
