Standing Stone Care & Rehabilitation Center has received accreditation for 2014 as a skilled nursing facility actively performing Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement activities.

The accreditation, presented by independent accreditor Providigm, LLC, demonstrates that the facility is continually assessing residents’ quality of life with regard to concerns such as pain, dignity, respect for resident choice, and quality of care problems such as whether there are enough staff to meet resident needs, weight loss, infections, rehabilitation following acute injury or illness, and prevention of readmissions to hospital.

Saturday night, December 6th, several of our elders along with Chaplain Steve Looper and QOL Director Rebecca Phillips participated in the annual Monterey Christmas Parade.

We had a wonderful time waving at all the onlookers and singing Christmas carols.

And wouldn’t you know it, the Grinch showed up and tried to hijack the facility van, but we were successful at pushing him out and continuing with our night of fun and fellowship.

On Monday, November 17, Signature HealthCARE of Fentress County and Standing Stone Care & Rehab teamed up for a Gatlinburg adventure to Cades Cove.

Cades Cove is one of the most visited areas in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The isolated valley was once home to an entire community. Visitors can see homes, churches and school buildings from a bygone era.

Although it was a cold and snowy day, it did not stop the residents from enjoying the beauty of the valley and the surrounding mountains. Braving the cold weather, the residents were treated to sightings of wild deer, turkeys and squirrels scampering through the trees. Seeing the still-standing pioneer homes and buildings was like traveling back in time.

The day ended with a buffet dinner at the Golden Corral in Sevierville, TN. They were hosting an appreciation night for all Veterans. It was truly an honor to get to share a meal with all of those American Heroes.

We here at Signature HealthCARE are truly blessed to share and fellowship together as a family and enjoy these wonderful journeys with our amazing elders!!

– Kelsey Hackett, Activities Director and Michael Conatser, Admissions & Marketing Director, Signature HealthCARE of Fentress County

On Thursday, Nov. 20, we hosted our annual Thanksgiving Dinner at our facility. Our management team worked as servers to ensure that our residents and family members received the most homelike experience possible. Our menu consisted of sliced turkey, dressing, sweet potato casserole, green beans, cranberry sauce, coleslaw, homemade rolls and a delicious selection of holiday-themed pies.

Families and Elders raved about the food, and how it was such a delightful experience for them. Some even called it a 5-star dinner while others commented that if this was the quality of service their loved one received daily, they were confident they were receiving top quality care.

We were proud to host this dinner as a way to let families and residents how much they mean to us here at Standing Stone.

– Becky Phillips, Quality of Life Director


This Veterans Day, Signature HealthCARE would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all of our nation’s military veterans, and those still actively serving. We especially want to thank all of our residents and stakeholders who served our country.

Happy Veterans Day from the Signature family to yours.

Signature recently held its Hometown Film Festival, an annual event in which nursing home residents create original films to compete for funds to go on vacation. Scripts are largely written by nursing home residents, who also star in the films. In 2014, more than 25 films were submitting, including the one above by Standing Stone Care & Rehab.

We hope you enjoy!

Standing Stone Care & Rehab Center recently participated in Putnam County’s Habitat for Humanity Mud Run. Standing Stone, a Signature HealthCARE facility, is always looking to support great causes that help their local community, such as this one.  Proceeds from the Habitat for Humanity Mud Run went towards building and repairing homes for those in need. We are very proud of our staff that participated, which included Joseph Key, Lisa Davis, Melody Coleman, Valerie Padgett, and Caitlyn Sampley, daughter of Norman and Sandy Sampley, who are both employed at Standing Stone. Way to go, Team Standing Stone!


Do you like to ride horses, play with your grandchildren, or enjoy gardening? James Wilson sure does, and that’s exactly what he’s been doing  since he completed in-patient rehab at Standing Stone Care & Rehab Center.

When James arrived at Standing Stone he couldn’t walk, put his shoes on, or get in or out of bed due to weakness.  Now he can do all the things mentioned before. He contributes his success in part to the staff, which delivered excellent care to him and always answered his questions.  James felt very comfortable while participating in his rehab, because everyone was so helpful.  He stated that, “If I have to go back to a facility (for rehabilitation) I would definitely go back to Standing Stone and I highly recommend them to others.”  James enjoyed getting to know each of his therapists, especially Joe Cravens and Lisa Connors (pictured above with him), because it contributed greatly to his overall experience, which he described as pleasant and comfortable.

Whittaker & Bilbrey 001

Linda Whittaker was devastated when she broke her leg in three places.  This greatly affected her quality of life, because she couldn’t get around anymore–she couldn’t even raise her leg.  However, she quickly overcame this obstacle and more once she completed in-patient rehab at Standing Stone Care & Rehab Center.  Her therapists, Lori and Amiee, really encouraged her to try hard.  At first Linda thought it was too difficult, but she soon realized that the effort she was putting towards her therapy was really paying off.  Within a few weeks Linda could not only lift her leg again, but she could also walk with the use of a walker.  Linda stated that she definitely chose the right place and that she would recommend Standing Stone to anyone who is in need of rehabilitation.  She is now home and enjoying her usual hobbies of canning vegetables and playing cards with friends.  Call us today for all of your rehabilitation needs (speech, occupational, and physical) at 931.839.2244. We are ready to help you too!
