2014-QAPI-Accreditation-Seal1

Mayfair Manor 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.

Mayfair residents enjoyed songs, refreshments, horseshoes, and drinks around a “campfire” with Nurses Registry!  (Of course, the fire was artificial!!)  Many thanks to the wonderful folk from Nurses Registry who entertain us monthly.

 

Several Mayfair residents entered their beautiful artwork in the Signature Reflect N’ Us Art Gallery.  Residents shown include Amy Belvin, Phyllis Craft, Genevieve Daniels, Alvina Fetick, Debbie Harris, and Eva Sergent.  An art show was held at Mayfair on July 16, complete with the various art pieces as well as refreshments.

 

Florida Tackett epitomizes the phrase “Success Story.”  Florida has been a Mayfair Manor resident since November, 2011.  When interviewed by the Quality of Life/Activities staff, she stated that “she had a lot of interests, but would not be interested in participating in the activities we offered.”  She preferred to pursue individual activities in her room.  In July, 2012 after discussion with her family, the decision was made to provide one-to-one visits with Activities staff.  Over the course of the next eight months Activities staff discovered that Florida enjoyed talking about her family, friends, the squirrels that would steal birdseed outside her window, holiday traditions, and the magazine “Kentucky Explorer.” Florida had submitted a picture of her family to that publication many years ago.  Florida was an avid quilter and gardener. With the help of Activities personnel, Florida created a paper quilt, which was submitted to the Signature Art Competition, “Reflect ‘N’ Us.”  Activities staff introduced her to new activities, such as “Uno,” gin rummy, and “Yahtzee.” Little by little, with the Activities staff encouragement, Florida began attending some exercise classes, resident birthday parties, and Red Hat Society meetings. In June, 2013 Florida was honored as Mayfair’s “Resident of the Month.”  Her son Chester and other family members attended the party to celebrate Florida’s life! Now Florida also participates in art projects, the Penny Auction, and Bingo. Florida is quite social and loves conversations about anything! Florida went on her first outing recently: She went bowling for “the first time in her life!”  Florida ended up being the high scorer with a whopping 104, and she even made a strike! All of us at Mayfair enjoy seeing Florida joining in the activities and having fun.  A special thanks goes to Activities Assistant Marissa Barry for her steadfastness and encouragement with Florida!

 

Several residents enjoyed lunch and bowling at Collins Lanes last Friday, June 6.  Florida Tackett, a first-time ever bowler, was high scorer with 104 points!  She even got a strike!  This also was Florida’s first outing while at Mayfair Manor.  Florida, who has been a resident since November, 2011 and preferred activities in her room, has become a regular at most activities.  Other bowlers included  Carolyn and Bobby Covington, Alvina Fetick, LuAnn Rodriguez, and Jim Scearce.  A special thanks to Collins Lanes staff Eileen, Mary, and Amanda, who baked delicious cookies for us.

 

Mayfair residents had fun blowing bubbles, playing with instruments, hitting balloons, and building towers with the children at “The Nest,” a day care center in Lexington.  Residents make frequent trips to “The Nest” as a service project.  They take toys, books, diapers, stuffed animals, toiletries, and anything else donated by Mayfair Stakeholders.  The staff at “The Nest” and the children look forward to visits from “Grandma” and “Grandpa.”  Residents notice how the children have grown as we have been visiting there for the past five years!

 

 

Receptionist (and “Jill of All Trades!”) Renee Pitre donated her time, talents, and materials to create “Fidget Blankets” for Mayfair residents.  Renee is a talented seamstress who gives freely of her time with our residents.  In addition to sewing, Renee donates items for the “Penny Auction,” assists residents, lends a listening ear or shoulder, makes the best macaroni salad, and participates in other activities with residents and Stakeholders.  The “Fidget Blankets” will be used and enjoyed by our residents.

 

 

Residents and Staff got a chance to be the next “American Idol” at Mayfair Manor!  To celebrate the final day of National Nursing Home Week, all enjoyed singing karaoke.  Entertainer Pat Geary provided the music.  Residents who sang included Debbie Harris, Linda Hazle, and Lucy Reese.  Stakeholders included Dietary Director Kristen Rayborn, Restorative Assistant Donna Loosemore, Assistant Maintenance Director Rick Polk , CNA Tracey Callahan , CNA Vickie Kenney,  Housekeeping/Laundry Director  Darlene Brandenburg, and Quality of Life Director Suzy Rupp.  Residents enjoyed mojitos (non-alcoholic)!

Mayfair residents celebrated National Nursing Home Week with an authentic Hawaiian luau with Nurses Registry.  Many residents and Stakeholders danced with hula hoops, learned hula hand movements, and ate fruit kabobs, Hawaiian punch, goldfish, and Mandarin orange cake baked by  Mayfair’s CC Craig.  A special thanks goes to Nurses Registry staff Lisa, Star, Chelsey, Erica, and Sylvester  for the party favors, food, decorations, and a fun time!  Hula Hoopers pictured are resident Debbie Harris,  Activities Assistant Jessica Yates, newly appointed Director of Maintenance for Danville Brett Williams, Dietary Assistant Kendahl Shoemaker,  SRNA Tamara Ray, and  PTAC Sylvester Peeples. Mayfair residents are enjoying different activities every day of National Nursing Home Week.  Harpist Mary Weatherford entertained on Mother’s Day; Dr. John Landon regaled residents and staff with Hawaiian music; residents will judge a “pulled pork” contest on Thursday; and sing karaoke on Friday which is Employee Appreciation Day.

The students from UK’s Phi Upsilon Omicron, an honor society for students in the School of Human and Environmental Sciences, are a regular fixture with Mayfair residents.  To dress up for the Kentucky Derby, residents made beautiful Derby hats with the Phi U’s assistance.  Residents who made hats included Alvina Fetick, Genevieve Daniels, Linda Hazle, Helen Kearney, Florida Tackett, Frances Shuey, Eva Sergent, and Jim Scearce.  Phi U’s included Christa Childers, Mandi McLean, Shelby Price, and Natalie Yan.
