Food, games, prizes, and of course the always popular cake walk!!! Great fun at the annual Riverview Fall Festival! Check out the pics…
It was a great time in the dining room today as a huge crowd of Elders and stakeholders gathered to be entertained by “Swingin Sensation”. As you can probably tell from the pictures, everyone had a blast! There were special appearances from Tina Turner, Dolly Parton, and even The King!!!
The annual “Hall of Fame” was held on October 9 at Riverview. The ceremony honored a long time doctor from our community, a stakeholder with many years of service, and three residents. One of the highlights of the night was when members of the Kentucky State Police gathered to help induct Chester Potter into our Hall of Fame. Mr. Potter was part of the first ever graduating class of the KSP Academy. Check out some pictures from this year’s Hall of Fame….
For those unable to attend a SHC Hall of Fame ceremony, we’re bringing the celebration to you with four sites that were selected to have their ceremonies broadcast live via our website.
On October 9, 2014, 99 Signature HealthCARE centers across the southeast and midwest will induct over 400 distinguished individuals into the Hall of Fame, in local ceremonies featuring celebrity speakers and presentations about the inductees lives and accomplishments.
The annual Fall Festival at Riverview HealthCARE is scheduled for Saturday, October 18 from 6:00-8:00pm. There will be concession, games, prizes, a costume contest, and much more. The community is invited to attend. All proceeds go to QOL Dept. Christmas Fund.
Music is a great uniting force. Music is an incredible power. Music is something that people who differ on everything and anything else can have in common. Music is one of the greatest universal languages of mankind. Where words often fail, music speaks. Music can take pain, loneliness, or sorrow and turned it into something beautiful, into something that people connect to, that’s what music does. It speaks to you. It changes you.
Music has always opened many doors for me in my life and it has been a way for me to connect with people in many ways. When I came to work here at Riverview I found that music was a great way to connect with our Elders. I think the key to making any connection with our Elders is all about learning their stories and who they are. I rarely come to work without some type of musical instrument, and I have definitely branched out to learn different genres of music and new songs to satisfy their musical tastes and connect with them. I think the roots of our being are anchored deep in the music of our heritage. A song can move you, trigger any number of emotions, bring to surface old memories. I think a person can hear a song and it can cause them to think of someone, or somewhere, or something from sometime in their life. I’ve found that to be especially true with our Elders. Whether its through the Gospel Music program or Appalachian Heritage Music Program here in our home, a one on one room visit with the guitar, piano in the dining room, clawhammer banjo on the back patio, their favorite song on the ipad, or simply and old hymn sang a cappella, music has been a fantastic way for me to connect with our Elders here at Riverview.

“We’ll help you take your first step home” has become the motto of our Therapy Department, and today there was a reunion held for those who had done just that. It was a wonderful gathering as former residents reunited with each other and with our Therapy Department in the dining room for a “Rehab Reunion.” Rehab Manager Tiffany Newsome welcomed everyone to the event and Chaplain Phillip Ramey opened with prayer. After lunch was served, Administrator Missy Allen assisted the therapy crew in handing out certificates to those in attendance. Our therapy team strives to help each individual achieve their goals and is committed to helping them take their first steps home! Check out some pictures from today’s Rehab Reunion.
Here’s a few of the wonderful features you will find here in our home. Please take the time to take this virtual tour.
