Weekly Family Update for Summerland Seniors Village
Thursday, October 15th-2020
RECREATION
Recreation is thinking well ahead to Remembrance Day and we want to make sure we honour all our Veterans. To do this I want to make sure our Veterans list is up to date. (REMINDER) If your loved one is a veteran please send me an email at jberrisford@retirementconcepts.com and include a brief blurb about their role in the military. Our Remembrance Day service will look a little different this year since we cannot gather in groups, but we will mark the day in the best way possible.

In the meantime we continue to facilitate our visits and provide programming. Please remember to send an email to jberrisford@retirementconcepts.com if you are interested in scheduling a visit and be sure to provide the following details:
a. Your name and the resident’s name
b. The type of visit preferred (face to face, window visit or FaceTime)
c. The date and time you wish for your visit
Once your scheduled visit has been confirmed, you will be contacted via email with the date and time of your visit.
WHEN YOU ARRIVE FOR YOUR VISIT
 Entry will be through the front entrance of the facility for face to face visits. If visiting outdoors please get screened at the front entrance before making your way to the back courtyard.
 Please arrive no earlier than 10 minutes prior to your scheduled visit.
 You will be required to wear a mask for the duration of your visit and we ask you to bring one.

 Visits will be held with social distancing in place for the duration of the visit ie. you are not able to physically touch each other

We ask you to keep in mind that through all of this, we are following the direction of the M.O.H. and appreciate your patience and support as we navigate through uncharted waters together in an effort to offer the best assistance possible in bringing you closer together with your loved ones during these trying times.
General Store
The General Store remains open with distancing restrictions (1 person at a time) and a good selection of treats and necessities.
Meals
Communal dining is back with our usual 2 sittings. It’s so nice to be able to get back to some level of normalcy.

All deliveries must come through the front entrance only and abide by guidelines set out in our previous communications. Once again, we remind folks not to leave deliveries on the carts provided after 4:30 PM.
