To all Family Members:

We are very pleased to inform all families that the Dufferin Care Center outbreak has been declared OVER by the Medical Officer of Health.

As you all will appreciate, we will be moving ahead very cautiously and keep all current processes in place to protect residents and staff.  As a result, all visitations will remain on hold for the time being.

If you have questions related to a specific resident, please address those matters to: info@retirementconcepts.com and we will respond as quickly as possible.

Communication

Please note: that this will be the last of our daily updates and we will now be moving to twice-weekly email updates to inform families about the status of Dufferin.

Lockdown at Dufferin Care Centre

The community remains on mandatory lockdown as per the Order of the Medical Health Officer.

We are following Dr. Bonnie Henry’s order to stop sharing staff between facilities.

Staffing

We are currently recruiting to our Recreation department, while all other departments are at their full complements.

The Dining Rooms remain closed until further notice. All residents will continue to be served meals in their neighbourhoods.

Supplies

We continue to receive an adequate amount of PPE supplies both from Corporate and Fraser Health Authority.

Teamwork

This has been an extremely challenging period for all involved – and we wish to thank our staff for their dedication and commitment.

We want to thank Jennie Deneka, COO and the WCSHM Emergency Response Team for their constant support, advice, supplies and words of encouragement during our outbreak.
