Resident Barbeques

We are happy to announce that we will be hosting a resident BBQ in August with lots of tasty food and beverages!  We would love to have family and guests join us, but unfortunately, due to the current circumstances, we are unable to accommodate guests during meal times, we do apologize for the inconvenience. This event will of course be properly distanced and all protocols followed.

Protocols

We continue to ensure ongoing deep cleaning and sanitization of the entire community, with additional housekeeping staff in all areas of the building, and enhanced cleaning in high touch areas. We will continue to act upon the latest advice of public health officials and adapt our operations as necessary and recommended, to reduce the risk of infection and transmission as much as possible.

 

Communication

Please know that should the condition of any resident change, their family will be notified immediately.

If you wish to be removed from these emails, please let me know.
