Honoring Outstanding Residents and Others

Signature HealthCARE alerted me (via Tweet!) about their Quality of Life program where they recognize outstanding residents and others in their community. On October 9th at 6pm ET, Signature HealthCARE will simultaneously induct over 350 distinguished individuals in 87 care centers into their Hall of Fame.

The Signature Hall of Fame website contains a gallery of photos and stories of the accomplishments of inductees in various areas of life such as leadership, public service, and volunteerism. I particularly like the section on personal accomplishments. See the video below (or click here) to find out more about the program.

As a psychologist I’ve heard many very private stories of residents who have lived for years with persistent pain, came through a childhood of prejudice, abuse, and/or poverty, and work hard to keep a positive attitude despite disability. As I’ve told some of “my” residents, I don’t find celebrity interviews nearly as interesting or impressive as hearing their stories.

If your facility has found a unique way to honor residents and staff, please share it in the Comments section.
