Staff and residents from Nashville Community Care & Rehabilitation Center at Bordeaux, Signature HealthCARE of Bowling Green, Signature HealthCARE of Clarksville, and Signature HealthACRE of Madison enjoyed an eventful “Senior Day” at the Nashville Zoo!
The crew kept busy by working their way through the terrain of the zoo, hearing zookeepers speak about the different animals like the macaws and the giraffes.
There were so many great sights to take in on this warm autumn day, and the residents were antsy to see it all. Everybody joined together for a picnic lunch, and then went back to exploring. It was a great day of fun in the sun!
Nashville held our first ever Signature HealthCARE Senior Olympics at Nashville Community Care and Rehabilitation Center at Bordeaux. Bordeaux hosted four other Signature facilities which included Signature HealthCARE of Bowling Green, Cleveland, Columbia, and Madison.
Each building brought six residents to enjoy a little friendly competition in events like the ADL Challenge, Wii Bowling, Cornhole, Shot Put, Trivia, and Wheelchair races. The residents enjoyed a motivational speech from Judge Rachel Bell, who is the Nashville General Sessions judge.
Judge Bell is a huge advocate for the Bordeaux community, and he was excited to speak at our event. The residents were also motivated by cheers and a dance performance by cheerleaders from Pearl Cohn Magnet High School. Our first “Signature’s Got Talent” Winner, April Ashley, belted out the National Anthem to kick-off the games.
The top three teams were awarded trophies with the hometown favorite, Bordeaux, taking gold, Bowling Green taking silver, and Madison taking home bronze. The “Most Spirited” award went to SHC of Columbia, the “Most Creative Banner” went to SHC of Cleveland, and the “Sportsmanship Award” went to SHC of Bowling Green. But one resident said, “Everyone really won today!”
The teams shared many memories and laughs while dancing to the Nae Nae, the Wobble and performing a little karaoke. Many new friendships were made while old friends were able to reunite. This was truly a day of togetherness, friendship and family with a little friendly competition mixed in. Thanks for making the trek through Nashville traffic to join such a momentous occasion.
Special Thanks goes to AMR, Chandler Watson, The Ambassadors Golf Club of Columbia, and Avalon Hospice for donating snacks and food for the event. Thank you Judge Rachel Bell, Pearl Cohn High School Cheerleaders, Kernel Dave-our DJ extroardinaire, Melissa Spencer, Chaplain Bill Smith from SHC of Madison for our opening prayer, Chaplain Dwayne Lowe from SHC of Bowling Green for our closing prayer, Donna Reed for being our photographer, and our regional and facility volunteers.

Staff and residents from Signature HealthCARE of Bowling Green, Signature HealthCARE at Hillcrest, and Hermitage Care and Rehabilitation Center enjoyed a day at Bowling Green Ballpark. They watched a thrilling game of baseball between the Bowling Green Hot Rods and the South Bend Cubs.
Even though the home team was unable to pull a win, the game was still exciting and the atmosphere was entertaining.
Our folks took pictures with the Hot Rods mascot, were featured on the jumbotron, and even caught a foul ball. We were lucky enough to be driving up when a foul ball was hit outside of the stadium. Thankfully nobody was hurt in retrieving the foul ball.
What a beautiful day at the park! We couldn’t have asked for better weather or a better day to be with friends and family!
