Good Afternoon,

 

 

Selkirk Seniors Village is COVID-19 Free! I realize it is very distressing hearing of the new outbreaks on the south island, but please know we are doing everything we can to remain safe.

Should the status of our community change in any respect, please know that we will immediately inform all resident’s and tenant’s families or primary contact.

The finishing touches are going on in the lobby to have it all set up for Christmas. I will send a photo next week of the finished product! The unit’s Christmas parties will occur on Dec. 15. Wayne, Support Service Manager, and Brian, Recreation Manager, have come together to plan a wonderful canapés lunch with recreation fun and entertainment.

 Community

  Another feel good community story, as we all can use more goodness right now. A woman dropped off some handmade Christmas cards her and her family created to show love and bring Christmas cheer, especially to those who may not have a lot of family. Her own grandmother was a resident many years ago at Selkirk, and she wanted to say thanks in this special way.

 

Visitations

 

All social visitation goes through the Visitation Team. You can contact them at 250-940-1028 local 1125.

 

If you are needing to cancel or rebook your visit, please give us as much notice as possible so we can try to fit someone else in that spot. Please send an email to Selkirk-familyvisits@retirementconcepts.com or via phone at local 1125. If families have questions regarding the visitations please contact Brian DelRay at local 1102, either he or another Selkirk Covid Committee member will contact you.

The Recreation team are facilitating FaceTime and Skype to the best of their abilities, while also completing their other duties. Please note that these are the only two platforms we are able to use.  Please reach out to Brian DelRaye-Recreation manager and his team by e-mail at bdelraye@retirementconcepts.com or Selkirk-recreation@retirementconcepts.com, or call to set up a schedule (Brian- 250-940-1028 x1102; Rec Office- 250-940-1028 x1120).  They will be happy to confirm a date and time to connect you with your loved-one.

 

 

 

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 your loved one of the following:

  1. Practice social distancing (6 feet apart)
  2. Perform proper Hand Hygiene (Wash hands frequently for 20 seconds or greater with the alcohol-based sanitizer or soap and hot water). This is very important
  3. Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth
  4. If exhibiting any symptoms (fever, cough and difficulty breathing) please inform staff immediately.

 

Thank You

 

 It is officially the last month of the year, and what a year it has been. Thank you for all your support and understanding, and abiding all the guidelines set by the MHO and Island Health to keep us all safe.
