Good Afternoon,

 

Selkirk Seniors Village remains COVID-19 Free! Please know that should the status of our community change in any respect, we will immediately inform all resident’s and tenant’s families or primary contact.

Recreation

Family Day felt a little different this year, but we hope you still found a way to celebrate the essence of the holiday and hope that next year we can all be with our loved ones for it.  The Valentine’s decorations came down this week, and soon Easter will be upon us. Yesterday was Random Acts of Kindness Day and The Victoria Foundation ran a coloring contest with Black Press and decided to share the entries with us. The Recreation team will be coming up with creative ideas on how to best display them.

I hope everyone had a chance to see the inter-generational art program attachment that was sent out last week via email. If you did not receive a copy, please feel free to reach out and one can be sent to you.

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

 

Thank you for everything you do to keep our community safe and Covid free.
