Enjoying the Beautiful Comox Valley Weather

We are so fortunate to live in the beautiful Comox Valley and enjoy an early spring/summer. Many folks have been getting out for walks and rolls, as well as working on the fruit and vegetable garden. The strawberries are looking just about ready to eat! Thank you to all our dedicated gardeners.

Father’s Day

We have a special brunch planned for the gentlemen (and ladies) for Sunday June 21st. Steak and eggs, pan fried potatoes and toast, with assorted desserts. They will hopefully feel spoiled and happy!

Reopening the Bistro – Monday June 22nd

We are excited to announce a reopening date for the Bistros in both buildings! We know many tenants have enjoyed the daily visit to their room with the morning coffee break carts, but are sure this small step on the road to normalcy will be welcomed! The bistro will be open Monday to Friday 9am to10am at both buildings starting Monday June 22. Our last day of the morning coffee break cart service will be Friday June 19.

The bistros will have a staff person to serve the tenants and we will be offering similar fare to what the tenants have enjoyed on the cart – coffee, tea, a selection of juices, and single serve fruit and pastries. We will ask that tenants not gather in the bistro area, but rather collect their favorite items to enjoy in their suites.

Guidance for Visits in Independent and Assisted Living  

We acknowledge that we are only able to suggest guidelines around visits with family members of IL/AL. Please know that we are proud of continuing to provide a safe COVID-19 free community and hope that if you do choose to take your family member out for a visit that you follows recommendations that mirror those told to us by Dr Henry.

 

  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

 

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.

Sincerely,

The Team at Comox Valley Seniors Village and Casa Loma
