Weekly Update for Summerland Seniors Village, Friday, October 9th-2020



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. 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:


  1. Your name and the resident’s name
  2. The type of visit preferred (face to face, window visit or FaceTime)
  3. 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.


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.


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.


Please continue to be vigilant when it comes to social habits by adhering to the precautions necessary to mitigate the spread of Covid-19: practice social distancing, keep your social bubbles to a minimum, and wear a mask when deemed necessary.

We would like to introduce to you our new Assisted Living Clinical Lead. We welcome Faith Kiiru to SSV. She brings with her 13 years of nursing experience. New to Summerland with her husband and young family, and they are settling in quite nicely.

SSV has got Talent. On Friday October 2nd various talented team members were sharing songs with the residents. We were so lucky to have beautiful weather and everyone got to enjoy hot chocolate and cookies in the sun and listen to come great singing!
