To all Family Members:

We are pleased that Dufferin remains COVID free – but please note that we continue to follow the mandate of no visitors to our building.

We are continuing with our FACETIME appointments. Please reach out to mvickers@retirementconcepts.com or call 604-552-1166 ext. 308 to schedule a FACETIME visit with your loved one.

We are now beginning to welcome new residents into our home gradually. We continue to follow FHA directions regarding our admission process which includes new residents being screened as they come into our home, and on a daily basis along with the rest of the residents.

We kindly ask that if you would like to drop off a treat or goodie to your loved one, that you ensure it is a dry pre-packaged manufactured food which can be sanitized. Examples would be cans of soda pop, chocolate bars, candy, unopened box of cookies ect.

Status Update

Close monitoring of all residents and staff continues. All staff are screened as they enter the building. They remain diligent to their respective floors meaning that 1st and 2nd floor staff enter the building through separate entries. All staff continue to wear masks and goggles while they are on resident units.

Communication

If you have questions related to a specific resident, please address those matters to: info@retirementconcepts.com. As you might expect, staff are extremely busy but we will respond as quickly as possible.

Lockdown at Dufferin Care Centre

Teamwork

We are receiving feedback from our amazing staff on what we can do better. Our staff’s comments are reviewed and responded to accordingly. We have introduced our Town Hall meetings once again with the staff.
