Hello Everyone:

 

We hope you all continue to stay safe and healthy!

 

We are again happy to report that NO RESIDENTS are presenting COVID-19 signs or symptoms at Langley Seniors Village.

 

Should the status of Langley Seniors Village change in any respect, please know that we will immediately contact families.

Nurses Week:

We celebrated Nurses Week this week and showed our appreciation to our fabulous nurses here at Langley Seniors Village.

   

 

 

Access

 I just want to remind everyone that there is no visitor access at Langley Seniors Village. We continue to ask everyone to be respectful of this measure as it is for resident and staff safety. Visiting outside the building with your loved-one is not an option. Even if physical distancing and PPE is used. The Public Health Officer in BC is stating we still need to have these measures in place.

 Protocols

 We continue to follow the direction of our public health officials to the letter and have full infection prevention and control precautions in place. Staff continue to monitor residents closely and are ensuring the following protocols are being adhered to:

Daily Assessments

 Daily assessments of the residents continue – including temperature checks and well being.

 

Recreation Program

 Our Recreation Manager Celeste has accepted a new position closer to her new home in Chilliwack and will be leaving LSV on May 19th.

 

From Celeste: It has been a tremendous pleasure working at Langley Seniors Village and I am grateful for my experience and the memories made here. Precious is our Recreation Aide and is doing a fabulous job! She will continue to inspire, engage with and uplift the residents here. They are in good hands. Sending my love and appreciation to the families and staff of LSV!”

 

Pictures on Facebook and Instagram:

Whenever the opportunity presents we take pictures and post them to Retirement Concepts Facebook and/or Instagram to allow families near and far to pictures of our residents during socially distanced recreation activities, events and/or enjoying our gardens. Below is one of our residents who has spent her time in lockdown knitting toques for newborns to donate to B.C. Children’s and other hospitals for the “Purple Crying Period” infants can have, and along with the toque parents are also given literature and education on preventing “shaken baby syndrome”. This amazing lady has made 187 of these toques over the last couple of months.

 Recreation has changed to our general email address now, please use lsv-recreation@retirementconcepts.com or call (604) 539-9934 ext. 1023 if you wish to set up an appointment to FaceTime or Skype with family members.

 

Dropping Items Off

 Just a reminder when dropping off items:

Once items are dropped off they are sanitized and delivered to the suites.

 

General Store

 The store continues to be well stocked with the most common items the residents request.  

 

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.

 

Thank You

As always we thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue our current practices to keep everyone safe and healthy.  We hope everyone enjoys this May long weekend!

 

Stay Healthy!
