The night began with refreshments provided by our dietary staff along with music provided by Isaac Belcher. Opening prayer was given by JT Belcher. Guest Speaker, Jerry Wright, spoke of the importance of long-term care nursing facilities and how it’s important for everyone to be involved in the lives of the Elders. He commended Signature Healthcare and the staff for not only the care that his family member has received but for the compassion that he has been shown as well.
