To Our Extended Family,

There continues to be no signs or symptoms of COVID-19 in any of our residents/tenants or staff here at Stanford Seniors Village, and for that we are very grateful. Should the status of our Community change in any respect, please know that we will immediately contact families.

Social Visitation:

The new guidance surrounding social visitation in Assisted Living and Long Term Care has been going really well. We are so happy to see families and friends come together again. It’s lovely to see many faces and lots of smiles.

Just a friendly reminder, when visiting please remain in your loved ones room/suite and not visit in other common areas of the community.

All social visits do need to be booked in advance, to schedule a visit with your loved one in care, please call 250-951-0811 x 1133 between 9:00am – 4:30pm, Monday to Friday.

To schedule a visit with your loved one in Assisted Living residents, please contact Natalie at 250-951-0811 x 1101.

 New Visitation Guidelines:

Dr. Bonnie Henry, Provincial Health Minister delivered an update with province wide changes to visitor guidelines in Long Term Care and Assisted Living Communities effective April 1st 2021.

 Visitation Friendly Reminders:

During the visit, we ask that you remain in your loved ones room and not move around the community, visit in the courtyards, dining areas or other common spaces.

Visits will only be allowed if there are no active COVID-19 outbreak at our Community.

Dropping items off:

All deliveries will be received at the front desk between 7:00am – 5:00pm. This includes groceries, medications, and gifts. All items will be sanitized and delivered directly to the resident’s suites.

We would ask that families please follow these guidelines to ensure your parent or loved one to get their deliveries in a timely manner:

  1. Please use plastic bags, no reusable bags.
  2. Make sure to label all bags with resident’s full name and room number.
  3. Try to limit drop offs to essential items. There are days when staff are overwhelmed trying to keep up.
  4. Please sanitize, if possible, the items before dropping off. We will re-sanitize as well to be safe.

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.

 

A big thank you to everyone for working so hard to keep Stanford safe and healthy, as well as for the kindness, understanding and support that has been shown.

 

A little joke to help brighten the day!

What do you call a herd of sheep tumbling down the hill?

A lambslide

 

With Love,

The Stanford Seniors Village Team
