Friday May 29, Comox Valley and Casa Loma Seniors Village – Update
We are participating in the walk to end Alzheimer’s this week at our communities. This is a yearly event that we did not want to miss. The keen walkers are logging their laps around the Casa Loma Loop (.25 km) and around Comox Valley Seniors Village (.5 km) during the week of May 25-31. WE will have prizes for those walking the longest distances. Donations are being accepted to the BC Alzheimer’s Society.
The return of activities to Casa Loma and CVSV has been embraced by the tenants. The exercise classes, art classes and music times are always full. We will hopefully be expanding our offerings in the coming weeks to accommodate all those who are interested in participating.
Removing Isolation Requirements for Residents Same Day Medical Appointments – Medical Health Officer
As of May 19th we have implemented new guidelines for same day medical appointments. Residents will no longer be required to self-isolate after attending same day medical visits (planned appointments or emergency room visits). We continue to ensure that infection control procedures remain the same, ie. Comply with strict hand hygiene, wear a surgical mask during transport, be screened prior to trip and when returning.
We are pleased to continue to report that no staff or residents are presenting COVID-19 signs or symptoms at Casa Loma Seniors Village and Comox Seniors Village. Thank you for your continued adherence to our no visitor policy. All the updates are posted to our website for easy reference. Should the status of this community change in any respect, please know that we will immediately contact families.
Thank you for all your support and cooperation during this challenging time. It is so important for the residents, staff and for family and friends.
The Team at Comox Valley Seniors Village and Casa Loma
