Mary Stark is more than glad that she chose Standing Stone Care & Rehab Center as her provider of choice for Rehab.  Ms. Mary went from barely getting around with a walker as well as lacking the ability to straighten or even bend her knee to FULL RECOVERY.  Now she enjoys total independence again and even attended the Lady Vols Final 4 Tournament last week! Amazing!!!!  She would like to commend everyone at Standing Stone for their kindness and consideration during her recovery.  Ms. Mary is enjoying her life once more as she continues to enjoy all things nature–especially hiking and bird watching.  We at Standing Stone consider it an honor to have provided skilled care and rehabilitation to her as we are always delighted to see our residents achieve success, just as Ms. Mary has done and return home fully recovered.

Thanksgiving is a time to give appreciation and thanks for all of our blessings. At Standing Stone Care & Rehab Center we know that each day is a blessing and we are always so thankful.

Our facility was transformed into a Carnival on July 20, 2012 as the elders, staff, and family members hosted our first carnival day.  The halls were beautifully decorated with bright colors and the air was filled with the aroma of fresh popcorn, refreshments, and the smell of fresh roasted hot dogs.  Several elders and staff members were dressed in costumes that would bring a smile to all! It was definitely a fun-filled day at Standing Stone Care and Rehab!

Our residents worked with Janet Brown in making home-made crackling bread (cornbread). Of course the residents were quick to share their secrets this well known southern recipe. Mmmmm, mmmmmm good!

Our residents and family enjoyed a delicious Thanksgiving meal with family, staff, and friends.

Standing Stone Care and rehab elders enjoyed an afternoon with the Camp Signature students in a watermelon spitting contest.  This was a contest that many of our elders had enjoyed in their childhood. The elders cheered and laughed as the campers engaged in this fun-filled activity.

This fall, about 170 Signature residents and caregivers traveled to Branson, Missouri for the annual resident vacation. For a glimpse of the action, check out the video below.

Standing Stone Care & Rehab Center (Monterey, TN) recently honored several ‘hometown heroes’ by inducting them into the facility’s ‘Hall of Fame’ cafe.  Standing Stone Care & Rehab Center is one of 72 nursing communities operated by Louisville, Ky. based Signature HealthCARE.  The Hall of fame Cafe concept was developed and launched company wide as a means of acknowledging the remarkable things residents and staff have accomplished in their lives.

Standing Stone Care & Rehab’s recent honorees are:

Ms. Sarah Norrod (resident) was born on October 30th 1911 to the late Sevier B. Phillips and Bell (Collins) Phillips. She was married for 46 years to Othar Norrod and they had two sons together.  Ms. Norrod is 102 years young and is the oldest elder in our home here at Standing Stone Care & Rehab.  She has witnessed historical changes throughout her lifetime, from horse and buggy days to the invention of the automobile, from coal oil lamps to the introduction of electricity, from hauling wood inside and fetching from the well to indoor heat and plumbing. She has always been regarded as an extremely hard working woman who took great pride in her family, home, and Baptist faith.

Mr. Carlos Morales (resident) is 93 years young and is of Spanish decent, but born and raised here in the United States.  Mr. Morales has lived all over the world and speaks four different languages.  He was a United States dignitary as well as an International Operator while serving a six year term in the U.S. Army.  Mr. Morales also worked for the Coca-Cola Company for 14 years as a Chemical Engineer until he retired.  Upon retirement Mr. Morales received a 20-year pension. During this time he paid his house off in Mexico and then presented a golden key to his wife to symbolize this accomplishment.  He claims his success is much owed to his work ethic which he established as a young child working along side grown men on the family farm.

Valerie Padgett (stakeholder)-Valerie was born to John and Jean Ramsey on September 23, 1962 and is the 3rd eldest child out of 7 siblings.  She is married to Bernard Padge and they have four amazing children together.  Valerie attended school at Wilson Elementary and graduated from Monterey High-School.  Valerie began her career at Standing Stone as a Certified Nursing Assistant while still in high-school.  Over the years she has held many important positions such as; Social Services Director, Medical Records, Receptionist, and currently Admissions Director.  We are truly blessed to have her in our facility and working with our elders.  We truly value all of Valerie’s hard work and dedication over the last twenty-five years.

Bill McPhail (community member)-Bill McPhail was born May 15, 1940 in Harnett County, North Carolina to the late Berlena McPhail.  Bill passed away Sunday, May 5, 2013 at the age of 72 years.  Bill retired as foreman from Volunteer Electric Cooperative in Monterey after 30 years of dedicated service.  Previous to his employment there he was employed at GTE, Appco, Ely, and Walker and was a supervisor at Black Tree.  At the time of his death he was working as a funeral assistant at Goff Funeral Home.  Bill was a faithful member of the Woodcliff Baptist Chruch and a former deacon, Sunday school teacher, and R.A. leader at Monterey First Baptist Church.  Bill was also an avid fisherman and gardener.  He also volunteered here at Standing Stone Care & Rehab Center and was very much loved and appreciated by the elders and stakeholders alike.  Bill was faithful to visit each of the elders almost daily and he never met a stranger.  He is missed beyond what words can express.  Bill was preceded in death by his first wife of 33 years, Betty Miller McPhail.  He is survived by wife Jearldean Phillips McPhail two daughters, and son-in-law; Monica and Rod Litteral and Felicia McPhail, five grandchildren; Taylor King, Nathan and Makayla Litteral, Noah and Eli Saylors, two step-daughters and son-in-law; Jean and Chris King and Tammy saylors, two sisters and brother-in-law; Jenny Allen, Cathy and Donald Collins, two brothers and sisters-in-law; Daniel and Peggy McPhail.

The awards ceremony was followed by a reception, with food prepared by Standing Stone Care & Rehab Center’s dietary staff. It is always a pleasure to show gratitude to such amazing residents, stakeholders, and community members. Thank you again for allowing us the opportunity to honor you all.

Residents got to revisit a simpler time at Standing Stone Care & Rehab’s recent community event, “Pioneer Days.”  The residents, their families, and citizens of Monterey got to enjoy the musical talents and gospel singing performances of Mrs. Michelle Looper, The Short Sisters, The Phillips Family, and the lovely Mrs. Rebecca Phillips.  There was something for everyone to enjoy as the days festivities also included a pie contest, quilt contest, and butter churning while the kids enjoyed indian face painting and bobbing for apples.  We were all amazed by the beautiful quilt and delicious canning entries which were judged by our residents who carefully selected the prize winners. Even better were the hand-made crafts the residents sold at their “Kountry Krafts” booth which included; soaps, candles, and fabric wreaths.  We would like to thank Rocky Pops BBQ in Monterey for donating all the delicious BBQ and Mr. Staggs for offering mule and wagon rides. Please be sure to mark your calendars and join us again next year for this special event.
