Below is a testimony written by Tara Stenberg regarding our Louisville South facility:
I had the privilege of fulfilling my CNA clinical training at Signature South Louisville recently. I got to work with many terrific CNAs and staff to whom I applaud for their daily work. However, as I sit here and reflect over the last two days, there is one name that continues to come to mind, and that is “Cherl”. I know that may sound odd, because I did not get the opportunity to officially meet you in person. However your presence at this facility was made known to me by one particular resident, Mr. D. I was blessed to meet Mr. D. and have a few conversations with him. Something about him stood out, perhaps because his diagnosis could easily be my father’s story or maybe it was simply his love for Jesus and his love of the Word that shined through. Whatever “it” was and despite the brief encounter, my life will forever be marked by his. I knew when I left the facility yesterday there was one thing I could do for him, which was to honor a wish of his. His wish is for you to be recognized, not only for the hard work that you do, but for being the person that you are to the residents. He referred to you as “Florence Nightingale”. He is so appreciative of your excellent care and the sincere heart that you show to everyone. If ever you have had a moment that you questioned your work, let me assure you that you are and have been light to this man. So, I wanted to encourage you with that today. Although, Mr. Royse is fully aware that the best is yet to come for those who have given their life to Christ, he thanks you. . .I thank you. . .for making his current home a better place. You are the Revolution, and I look forward to hopefully meeting you in the future. Please tell Mr. D. that I said “Hi” and that I didn’t forget.

A testimonial from Donelson Place, Nashville, TN:
Though we’ve not yet had an opportunity to meet, I wanted you to know that one of the primary reasons I came to work for Signature is because of the Department of Spirituality. I absolutely love that this company embraces spirituality what we do and makes it a focus of our days. I have visions of collaborating with your department in some way in the future.

Recently I had the pleasure of being a guest lecturer to the Entrepreneurial Strategy class in the MBA program at Bellarmine University. The course focuses on the
development of strategy from an entrepreneurial and new ventures perspective using analysis of case situations and development of new business ideas.
There were 30 or so students in the class and I spoke with them about the cross-pollination of business and the entrepreneurial spirit to build the Department of Spirituality into the largest
for profit multi-faith spirituality program in nation.
One of the students sent me the following email after the class which I wanted to share:
“I had to email you because I wanted to tell you how your lecture inspired me, while it was fresh on my mind. Your speech was awesome. I was encouraged as a young woman in Corporate America and a young woman evolving in her spiritual life… as I’m growing, maturing, and striving hard every day to be the Proverbs 31 woman. Your lecture showed me that in my career I don’t have to be one or the other. I can be a young savvy business woman and a devout spiritual woman. I can and should be both.
Honestly, I was afraid to dialogue with you as freely as I would have liked, because of our setting. However, I will say that your lecture was liberating! When I left my MBA class tonight I was more uplifted and inspired than I have ever been from any other lecture in my whole MBA stent.
I think Signature Healthcare, LLC is doing a wonderful revolutionary thing and I was tremendously blessed tonight to make your acquaintance. From our short meeting, I can tell you are a wonderful, courageous woman.”
