Kenilworth Care & Rehab hosted an event last Thursday, May 1, to celebrate the National Day of Prayer.

The National Day of Prayer is held each year on the first Thursday in May. A law was enacted in 1952 formalizing observance of the day, although its origins trace back to 1775, when the first Continental Congress called for a National Day of Prayer and melding the relationship between government and the blessings of God.

This year’s theme for Signature’s third annual National Day of Prayer celebration is ‘In Defiance of Suffering.’

At Kenilworth, elders and staff members joined hands  in honor of National Prayer Day. Our Resident Council President Barbara started with the Lord’s Prayer through our facility’s intercom system, followed by submitted prayers and requests being read by Chaplain Paul.

Barbara’s Prayer:

“I ask the Father to look on all His children gathered here with Kindness and Mercy”

At Signature’s Louisville headquarters, the company recognized the National Day of Prayer with an interfaith celebration of several religions and faith traditions. Representatives from nearly a dozen religions or faiths joined to recite prayer together, signifying spiritual diversity and the importance of prayer in daily life.

“The act of unified prayer is important as a symbol of faith, but even more than that, we want this event to be actionable,” said Dianne Timmering, Vice President of Spirituality for Signature HealthCARE. “Each and every one of us suffers, in some way, maybe daily. Under this year’s theme, we want the National Day of Prayer to be a springboard for every day to be a day in defiance of suffering. We are a movement in defiance of suffering.”

The event was simulcast live to all 100 Signature nursing homes, which each hosted their own unique National Day of Prayer celebrations.

“As a faith-based company, we are proud to host an event that brings together so many spiritual groups,” said Signature President and CEO Joe Steier. “We’re glad so many could join us to celebrate this historic day.”

Recent art classes at Kenilworth Care & Rehab Center have become a big hit for our Elders. Highlands Art League Instructor Megan visits the facility once a month to teach the Elders. Joe says this art class has worked wonders. When asked how, his response was that it takes all his pain away, that at times the medicine can’t!

Monthly classes begin at 2 p.m. and end around 4 p.m. The paintings are then displayed throughout the home.

Ziggly Wiggly, a recent graduate clown from the Toby the Clown Foundation, recently visited Kenilworth Care & Rehab to spend time with our Elders, along with a group from the Busy Kids Creative Learning Center, for a day of fun and laughter.

The Toby the Clown Foundation, in Lake Placid, Fla., is home to the American Clown School and has graduated more than 1,500 clowns since 1993. Busy Kids Creative Learning Center is a child care facility in Sebring, Fla. that periodically partners with Kenilworth for inter-generational events.

One of our Elders said laughter is the best medicine because it keeps him young at heart, and the little ones bring joy and good memories!
