Tuesday, April 28, 2020– Beacon Hill Villa – Update

 Hi Everyone:

We hope that everyone is staying safe and healthy!

 In spite of the fact that no residents are presenting COVID-19 signs or symptoms, we are restricting all visitors out of an abundance of caution. We know this continues to be an anxious period for residents, families and loved-ones – but we ask that everyone be respectful of this measure, for resident and staff safety.

We continue to follow the direction of public health officials and other clinical experts regarding the best infection prevention and control measures to take to avoid transmission of the COVID-19 virus.

Should the status of this facility change in any respect, please know that we will share this information.

Protocols

We are following the direction of our public health officials and have infection prevention and control precautions in place. Staff continue to monitor residents closely and are ensuring the following protocols are being implemented:

Recreation Program

We have been working hard to facilitate virtual connections. Please contact our Recreation Manager Kassandra at kkeszthelyi@retirementconcepts.com if you would like to schedule a video chat or telephone call with your loved one. Please contact Cheryl, the Director of Care, cmoore@retirementconcepts.com  if you would like a general update on the health status of your loved one.

 

Dropping items off: Please coordinate all item drop-offs with the Recreation Manager, Kassandra kkeszthelyi@retirementconcepts.com

We would ask that families please follow these guidelines to ensure deliveries in a timely manner.

  1. Please use plastic bags, no reusable bags
  2. Make sure to label all bags with resident full name and room number
  3. Try to limit drop offs to essential items.
  4. Consider using Canada Post where precautions have been put in place
  5. items may be quarantined for 48hrs

 Reminders for your loved one to Stay Safe:

Please remember these important public health measures:

  1. Practice social distancing (6 feet apart)
  2. Perform proper Hand Hygiene (Wash hands frequently for 20 seconds with the alcohol-based sanitizer or soap and hot water) 20 second or greater is so important.
  3. Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth
  4. If exhibiting any symptoms (fever, cough and difficulty breathing) please stay in your room and contact the front desk immediately
