In 1928, Mickey Mouse made his official debut in “Steamboat Willie.” today the mouse was in the house here at Riverview to celebrate his 86th birthday. Mickey and Minnie made a special appearance in our dining room to the delight of our elders, stakeholders, and families. Balloons, birthday cake, and some famous Mickey Mouse Clubhouse songs really made this party come to life. Check out some pictures of the young and the young at heart enjoying this fun event!
On Saturday, November 15th, we held our first ever “Riverview HealthCARE / Prestonsburg Blackcat Run” and it was a huge success. The cold temperatures didn’t keep the community from turning out to not only run a 5K, but to also support the Prestonsburg Blackcat football team as they continue in the high school playoffs. After registration was complete, the race began with a lap around the Prestonsburg football field. The race then proceeded through downtown Prestonsburg and back to the field for a final lap around the track. The runners were split into five different age groups and medals were given to the top three finishers in each age group. After the race, we broke out the grill and had a tailgate party for the football team. During the celebration, we had a drawing for door prizes. Everything from gift cards to a 32″ flat screen tv was given to the winning ticket holders. When all was said and done, we managed to raise over $2,500 to be used to buy Christmas gifts for our elders here at Riverview. This was our first attempt at this event, that is already set to be an annual event for the community. Now everyone has another year to start training for the 2nd annual Riverview/Blackcat Run in 2015, and its sure to be even bigger and better next year!
This Veterans Day, Signature HealthCARE would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all of our nation’s military veterans, and those still actively serving. We especially want to thank all of our residents and stakeholders who served our country.
Happy Veterans Day from the Signature family to yours.
Someone once said “A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.” Today, we would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all that have served our country, and for the sacrifices they have made for our freedom.
It started out as a day that was somewhat normal as one of our Eden neighborhoods, Patchwork Place, hosted an activity.
It was supposed to be an outing to take some of our elders shopping, but shopping was just the beginning. By the time the day had ended, we had not only gone shopping, but we had stopped to dine in at a favorite local restaurant, taken a relaxing drive around the lake, and spent some quality time at the park enjoying the beautiful fall weather. This was certainly a day of spontaneous fall fun. One of our elders even made the remark on the way back home, “This is the most fun I have ever had!”
Excitement is building in the weeks leading up the first annual Riverview HealthCARE/Prestonsburg BlackCat Football “BlackCat Run” 5K Run/Walk. This is sure to be an event you will not want to miss. This will be a tailgate party atmosphere complete with hotdogs, music, and members of the Blackcat Football team and dance team. There will be awards given to the top three men and women in each age category. This event will also include a drawing for door prizes, including a T.V. and much, much more. All proceeds from this event will go to the Riverview Quality of Life Dept. Christmas Fund to buy Christmas gifts for all of our residents. Be sure to register now!

On a cool fall day in October in Prestonsburg, Kentucky, one gentleman experienced the ride of a lifetime as Sergeant Chris Hicks of the Kentucky State Police pulled into the parking lot at Riverview HealthCARE to give one of our elders, Chester Potter a ride in a new Dodge Charger Police Cruiser.
In 1947, Mr. Potter was drafted into the Kentucky Highway Patrol which today is known as the Kentucky State Police. Chester was a graduate from the very first class of the Kentucky State Police. He is the only surviving graduate of his class. Chester solved some very famous cases during his career as a Trooper and later as a Detective for the Kentucky State Police. These cases, his interrogation techniques, and his tracking abilities were later used in books that were studied at the KSP Academy. Chester retired in 1975 from the Kentucky State Police. His badge and the number on it were also retired with him. Mr. Potter’s badge was the first in the history of the KSP to ever be retired.
It was not the fact that Chester was getting to ride in a police cruiser that was significant, he had driven one many times, but the ride of a lifetime was experienced by the KSP Sergeant and the honor he had in giving a ride to Mr. Potter. This truly must have been the ride of a lifetime!
Fall is an eventful time here at Riverview. Our annual Fall Festival was held on October 16th and a Safe Trick or Treat was held for children of the community on October 30th. The excitement continued on Halloween as one of our EDEN neighborhoods, Misty Meadows, hosted a Halloween Monster Bash. This fun-filled event consisted of music, food, a costume contest, and even an old fashioned cake walk. This was certainly a Halloween party that was enjoyed by all who attended!
We had a great time at the Fall Festival with food, games, prizes, and of course the always popular cake walk! Great fun at the annual Riverview Fall Festival!
