Friday, August 21, 2020– Beacon Hill Villa – Update

 

Hi Beacon Hill Villa Family & Friends,

We had a lovely surprise from our local Subway! They arranged for the residents and staff of BHV to get a FREE sub on Saturday August 15! Residents received a sub of their choice, instead of the usual Saturday lunch.

Beacon Hill Villa would like to thank Subway for their kind and generous support to the front line staff and residents during these challenging times. They brought cheer and sunshine to BHV!  Thank you SO MUCH Subway!

As BHV moves forward with in person visits, we are offering scheduled alternating week visits at a time & date that works for you (once every two weeks)   OR   weekly visits which fit into our pre-set schedule calling out free spots about 3 days prior to availability. Recreation has gotten in contact with most of the designated visitors, please email kkeszthelyi@retirementconcepts.com or call 250-419-6826 if you have not been contacted.

Visitation Tip: For families with multiple loved ones wanting to connect, you can bring in your iPad/smart devices to call their loved ones to have more family members present during the visit. This can be arranged with recreation during your visits. If a BHV iPad is needed then please contact Kassandra a minimum of 2 days prior to the scheduled visit to arrange.

Welcome back Lori! It has been lovely having Lori the hair dresser back in action (modified of course) here at BHV! She has done an excellent job of transforming the residents back into their beautiful selves! Please email lorileibaker@gmail.com if you would like to schedule a haircut for your loved one. Keep your eye out for the September BHV newsletter to see some of the transformations.

We want to thank everyone for their patience as we start our visiting program. If you have submitted an application but have not heard from us, please follow up with an email to the new email address: familyvisits@beaconhillvilla.com

As things will look a bit different, here is a summary of what to expect when you visit:

The anticipated schedule allows 1 visit every 2 weeks. We hope to expand this as restrictions ease. This will ensure all residents have a visit with their loved ones. The recreation team will be able to provide programs for residents who do not have family visits.

In order to maximize our time so all families can benefit from booking a visit quickly:

Take care and stay safe,

Beacon Hill Villa Team
