I am tremendously proud to have been a part of our journey here towards culture change and elder-centered care,” Kim Stallings, CEO at Signature HealthCARE of Roanoke Rapids, said.

The Eden Alternative Registry, a national list of nursing homes and rehabilitation centers take a different approach to healthcare by embracing person-centered care at each level from staff development to clinical care procedures. The person-directed care philosophy says that each individual’s desires and needs are considered in daily health care decisions.

“We strive every day to create an atmosphere of family. The Eden approach means a new mindset for everyone,” Angie McAllister, Director of Cultural Transformation at Signature HealthCARE said. Signature HealthCARE marked its 50th location named to the Eden Alternative Registry in January.
