Nursing Home and Nurse’s Week

Signature HealthCARE at St. Peter recently celebrated National Nursing Home and Nurse’s Week. We kicked off the celebrations on Mother’s Day by passing out bouquets to our resident and nurses during our special celebration. On Monday we passed out goodie bags to all nurses with candles, lotions, candy, and cards to show how much we appreciate all the compassionate work that they do. On Tuesday we surprised them again with fresh coffee and world famous Gibson’s Donuts for the early shifts and a free snack cart for those working in the afternoon. Wednesday was full of special fun because the activity department organized a Stakeholder Car Wash and a visit from an all-inclusive Snow Cone Truck. On Thursday we had a facility wide Ice Cream and Cake Social with all of the fun and fixins’. Residents enjoyed a “Make Your Own Ice Cream” activity that was a huge hit. We wrapped up a great week on Friday by passing out candy bars that read “Random Acts of Big Heartedness” to reflect this year’s theme of “It’s a small world with a BIG heart!”
