Friday August 14, Comox Valley and Casa Loma Seniors Village – Weekly Update

Recreation Activities

We had a great turn out for our workshop making personalized bookmarks. We will be repeating it again later this week as the ladies had more great ideas for designs. Thank you Marion and Marion for showing us your talents!

Reminder for Visitation – Casa Loma & Comox Valley Seniors Village IL/AL

As we move towards opening up our communities to more visitors, we will be working with our IL/AL tenants and families to ensure there is a clear understanding of essential and social visitors, and the provincial guidelines in regards to the visitor policy.

Indoor Visits (Essential Visits)

Indoor Visits will be restricted to essential visitors only, as per the MOH Guidelines:

 

Scheduling:

 

Screening and process for visitor:

 

Outdoor Visits (Social Visits)

  1. Maintain 2 meters of separation during your visit
  2. Wash your hands many times during your outing
  3. Wear a surgical or cloth mask at all times during your visit
  4. Have your visit in the outdoors – it is safer than an area of recycled air indoors
  5. Opt for a picnic versus a restaurant
  6. If you are travelling by car, maintain separation by sitting in the back seat and keep the windows open if possible
  7. Avoid unnecessary outings to shopping centres and grocery stores

 

Reminders for 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
  4. If exhibiting any symptoms (fever, cough and difficulty breathing) please alert staff immediately.

There continues to be no signs or symptoms of COVID-19 in any of our residents/tenants or staff at Casa Loma and Comox Valley 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.

A big thank you to everyone for working so hard to keep Stanford safe and healthy, as well as for the kindness, understanding and support there has been.

Sincerely,

The Team at Comox Valley Seniors Village and Casa Loma
