More than 1,000 Signature staff members registered for the recent Spirituality LearnFEST, a virtual learning conference that encouraged participants to consider the impact of spirituality, if fully activated, in a long-term care environment.

And that number doesn’t even include the many who joined in groups, in offices, breakrooms and wherever there were TVs or computers at Signature centers across 10 states to view the live broadcast. The event featured sessions that tied spirituality to numerous aspects of long-term care and health care, from clinical care to legislative involvement and the impact of spirituality in the workplace.

Signature’s Urban Segment has been highlighting different cultures since September 2014 in the Quality of Life department. Every month a country is celebrated with weekly activities representing that specific country. Staff and residents learn about the culture which includes, crafts, food, language, famous landmarks, and learning about the customs and traditions.

China was highlighted during the month of February. Urban Indiana, Urban North, and Urban South celebrated the Chinese New Year on February 19, 2015. Each community in Urban created their own version of the Chinese dragon for their celebration. The top two dragons in each sub-segment were the winners!  The residents are still talking about the celebrations held at their communities.

Both sides of the “ghost” question were vigorously debated at Winter Park Care & Rehab, and then the debate was judged by a jury of residents.

One goal of the program was to promote clear and critical thinking among residents of the nursing home.

Participation was high and varied opinions were voiced by staff members and residents. Evidence for the “pro” side was presented by our administrator, Jose Alicea, while the “con” side was defended by Chaplain Larry.

We used our reasoning abilities and thought long and hard. On the “pro” side, notice the two pictures and look for the “orbs.” Chaplain Larry, meanwhile, countered with 25 reasons why ghosts don’t exist. The debate was deftly moderated by Admissions Director Jennifer Baker. The jury of residents decided that the “pro” side won the day and the decision came down in favor of Jose Alicea and his argument for the existence of “spirits.” Chaplain Larry took the resounding defeat in stride as Jose was a gracious victor. We plan to debate other topics in the future and include the residents directly in the debate.

P.S. To see the “orbs,” look carefully to the left in each pic for a circle with a faint pattern in it. One pic was taken in a tunnel, another in a cemetery; both were snapped by Jose.

What do you do with two-week-old fruit cake? You throw it as far as you can for prizes, which is exactly what we did yesterday at our first annual Fruit Cake Tossing at WPCR.

The best toss was well over 50 feet, made by one of our residents who hails from Ohio. She is the lady in the sporty black chapeau. All in all, a merry time was had by everyone, and remarkably, we all joined together to eat the balance of the much-maligned holiday dessert at the close of the event.

The Spirituality and Quality of Life departments joined to sponsor and host the event.

We are celebrating Advent with a series of lunches on the theme of the arrival of the Lord. Vitas Hospice has provided lunch the past two weeks, and this week we will be eating an all-organic Mediterranean meal dished up by my wife. Vitas chaplain David Huber provided the message last week. These Advent Lunches will continue for two more weeks, and we will renew the luncheon series during Lent.

“Advent in the Florida Sun” was celebrated and lead by the second grade youth of St. Margaret Mary School in Winter Park.  Sixty students, moms, dads and residents rejoiced in the Advent of our Lord as we turned our eyes to the coming of the Son of God.
