I found out I had cancer in October of 2014, since then I’ve had two surgeries. Thankfully the doctors say all the cancer has been removed. I’ll still be doing two intense cycles of chemo to make sure the cancer doesn’t come back, and the doctor has already assured me I will lose my hair. I REFUSE TO LET CHEMO “TAKE” MY HAIR! So… I decided to let our elders here at Riverview shave it off for me.

In 27 years as a state police officer in Eastern Kentucky, Chester Potter broke up moonshine stills, tracked murder suspects, solved big cases and survived plenty of close calls. Once he was searching for a murder suspect outside a house when he suddenly came face to face with a mean-looking man pointing a shotgun at him, Potter recalled in an interview last year. He said, ‘You know, I’ve always wanted to know how a person feels when they are about to die. Can you tell me?’” Potter said. “I said, ‘If you’re talking to me, I don’t feel too good.’ “The “disagreement” ultimately turned out all right, Potter said. His son, Dennis Potter, said Monday that he didn’t know how his father got out of that jam, but he did know “he ended up with the shotgun.” Chester Potter, the last surviving member of the first Kentucky State Police cadet class in 1948, died Saturday in Floyd County, where he had been a resident of Riverview Health Care Center. He turned 94 on Dec. 31. Potter retired from the state police in 1975 but retained a lifelong connection with the agency. The cake at his party two weeks ago had a badge on it, said his daughter, Sherry P. Shepherd. “His life was the Kentucky State Police,” Shepherd said. Sherry Bray, who works in the state police public affairs office, said that when two state police officers went to see Potter last week, he sat up for the first time in days and saluted them.

Expansion. Adaptation. Innovation.
These words, in many ways, defined 2014 for Signature HealthCARE. The Revolution brought our total number of locations to 125. We welcomed new centers to the family and took pivotal steps to position SHC as an integrated care network capable of meeting health care needs across the full spectrum of care. We expanded into new business lines while continuing to enhance and invest in existing service offerings.

In 2015 we will begin a new stakeholder recognition program here at Riverview. Each week the management team will select an “EDEN All-Star of the Week.” Nominations will be based on the stakeholder’s attendance, performance, attitude, and their willingness to embrace the EDEN approach in caring for our Elders. The weekly winner will receive a certificate of recognition, an “All-Star” lapel pin, and a gift card for one free lunch in our Mugg-Z Café. Out of the weekly winners for each month we will also select a “Culture Change Champion of the Month.” This person will receive a custom t-shirt, a “Champion” lapel pin, a reserved parking spot, and other prizes. Our goal is to boost stakeholder engagement and to further advance our home’s attitude toward culture change. Stay tuned for the announcement of our first “EDEN All-Star” for 2015.

It’s been a great 2014 here at Riverview, and there’s no better way to welcome a new year than with a huge New Year’s Eve Party!
