To Our Extended Family

There continues to be no signs or symptoms of COVID-19 in any of our residents/tenants or staff here at Stanford Seniors Village, and for that we are very grateful. Should the status of our Community change in any respect, please know that we will immediately contact families. Please let reception know of any contact information changes. 

Update

Happily on Wednesday May 12 Island Health came through Stanford a second time to give any Moderna or Phizer booster shots that may have been missed on May 10th. There will be another VIHA visit in the near future for any resident’s that were missed this last week.

Social Visitation:

The new guidance surrounding social visitation in Assisted Living and Long Term Care has been going really well. We are so happy to see families and friends come together again. Its lovely to see many faces and lots of smiles.

Just a friendly reminder, when visiting please remain in your loved ones room/suite and not visit in other common areas of the community. As well please keep your mask on at all times during your visit for our resident’s protection.

All social visits for both Long Term Care and Assisted Living do need to be booked in advance. To schedule a visit with your loved one in our care, please call 250-951-0811 x 1133 between 9:00am – 4:30pm, Monday to Friday.

Visitation Friendly Reminders:

 All visitors will be screened for signs and symptoms of illness, including COVID-19, prior to every visit. We ask families and friends to self-screen prior to your scheduled visit for any signs or symptoms of illness. If you are feeling unwell we ask you to please reschedule your visit.

 Visitors must bring a medical grade mask, and wear the mask for the duration of the visit and perform frequent hand hygiene.

 Residents are allowed up to two visitors and one child under 18 per booked visit.

 Only residents are allowed to eat during visits as masks must be kept on visitors at all times.

 On arrival visitors will receive guidance on the visiting process, and we ask that you follow all the BCCDC and Health Authority guidelines.

 Visits will be booked for 60 minutes segments.

 Please limit your visit to one care facility per day to ensure limited cross contamination.

Recreation:

With these lovely sunny days we are ensuring residents are using the courtyards and enjoying the sunshine and everything in bloom. The recreation team are preparing activities to ensure residents can have fun, exercise and socialize with each other in our community. Arts and crafts, active games, brain games, table games and music programs are just some of the programs that we are enjoying.

 

Dropping Off Items:

All deliveries will be received at the front desk between 7:00am – 5:00pm. This includes groceries, medications, and gifts. All items will be sanitized and delivered directly to the resident’s suites.

We would ask that families please follow these guidelines to ensure your parent or loved one to get their deliveries in a timely manner:

  1. Please use plastic bags, no reusable bags.
  2. Make sure to label all bags with resident’s full name and room number.
  3. Try to limit drop offs to essential items. There are days when staff are overwhelmed trying to keep up.
  4. Please sanitize, if possible, the items before dropping off. We will re-sanitize as well to be safe.

Reminders to Your Loved One to Stay Safe:

Again, the following four points are so critical to discuss with your loved ones. Please help us by reminding each resident daily of the following four items:

  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. If exhibiting any symptoms (fever, cough and difficulty breathing). Please alert staff immediately.

 

A big thank you to everyone for working so hard to keep

Stanford Seniors Village safe and healthy, as well as for the kindness, understanding and support that has been shown.

 

A little joke to help brighten the day!

I went into a store to buy some books about turtles.

“Hardbacks?” asked the shopkeeper.

“Yes,” I replied. “And they have little heads, too.”

  

With Love,

The Stanford Seniors Village Team
