This month’s Stakeholder Spotlight and Promotion has been combined to focus on two stakeholders who have recently made an incredible impact on their home.
Let me introduce Jackie Stevens and Terra Harris, who both served as housekeepers and were then promoted to CNAs at Rock-castle Health and Rehabilitation Center in Brodhead, Kentucky.
Rockcastle, like many other homes, continues to experience a shortage of CNAs. Much of their recruiting focus is spent on job fairs and recruiting CNAs. While attending a community job fair, the HR department was consistently asked the same question: “Do you offer training?” Rockcastle recognized that the best way to impact staffing shortage was to create opportunities of growth for anyone interested.
“You never get too old to enjoy life,” said a 91-year-old Signature resident who traveled to Panama City Beach, Fla. earlier this year, the fourth consecutive year Signature has taken groups of residents on vacation.

More than 1,000 Signature staff members registered for the recent Spirituality LearnFEST, a virtual learning conference that encouraged participants to consider the impact of spirituality, if fully activated, in a long-term care environment.
And that number doesn’t even include the many who joined in groups, in offices, breakrooms and wherever there were TVs or computers at Signature centers across 10 states to view the live broadcast. The event featured sessions that tied spirituality to numerous aspects of long-term care and health care, from clinical care to legislative involvement and the impact of spirituality in the workplace.
