Friday, June 19th-2020– Beacon Hill Villa – Update
We’d like to thank one of our volunteers, Lisa, and her jazz band for playing some wonderful music for the residents and staff at Beacon Hill Villa. Thank you also to Kassandra and the Recreation Team for the hard work and planning to ensure that the residents could enjoy this concert safely and while maintaining their physical distance. Kassandra reports it was very fun and happy vibes from all involved.

Covid Response Protocol
Any resident that shows symptoms will be tested for COVID-19 without delay and put on isolation precautions. If the resident is positive, they will be assessed for transfer to a dedicated COVID-19 unit for specialized treatment and to reduce risk of outbreak in the LTC home. Island Health Communicable Disease will guide.
We are continuing to follow the direction of our public health officials and have infection prevention and control precautions in place.
We are pleased to share that we are continuing to shift our recreation offerings according to updates with guidelines and recommendations:
– We have started small group programming following guidelines and direction
– Virtual volunteer visits continue — Including Lynne & Teddy the Dog
– Virtual music therapy continues —bi-weekly sessions on Tuesday mornings and Friday afternoons.
We appreciate your understanding as the resumption of small group activities may impact our ability to facilitate video calls and virtual visits as frequently.
