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.

As you are all aware, the Premiere John Horgan announced that the timing of the second COVID-19 vaccine shot has been moved from 6 weeks to 16 weeks. When we have more information on when the exact clinic date, an email will be sent out.

Recreation

The recreation team are busy with St. Patrick’s Day decorations and the chef’s tell me there will be an Irish stew served to celebrate. Our Recreation Manager has been busy shopping for garden supplies, and soon the patios on each unit should be feeling like spring! The sunshine has been a welcome change from our rainy winter, and the sunny weather has allowed our Recreation Team to get more people out in the walking programs.  Other activities such as baking, reading groups, trivia, crosswords, crafts, ice cream socials, exercise classes are still very popular and keep everyone who wants to participate busy.

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.
