Stanford Seniors Village Community Update, August 14, 2020

 

To Our Extended Family,

 

Our residents sprits have been lifted over these past couple of weeks as visits with families have begun. I know our residents are loving seeing their loved ones, as I’m sure the seeing your loved ones has been wonderful!

 

We want to say a big thank you to those who have had a chance to visit for following our protocol in maintaining the safety of everyone. It is very difficult to not be able to visit like before. We really do appreciate to co-operation and understanding.

 

As a reminder:

To schedule a visit with your loved one please contact the Reception desk at 250-951-0811 x 0 between 9:00am – 4:30pm, Monday to Friday. Independent and Assisted Living please contact Mikhayla or Rachel at 250-951-0811 x 1101 or 1155 to schedule a visit.

 

Social visits will be limited to a single designated visitor per resident and must be booked in advance. To ensure that all families get an opportunity to visit their loved ones, there will be no re-occurring on site visits booked at this time.

 

The visitation process, please note the key requirements:

 

We continue to encourage family members and other loved ones to connect with residents via telephone, FACETIME or SKYPE. To inquire about facetime/skype or phone calls, please contact stanford-reception@retirementconcepts.com.

 

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

 

Dropping items off 

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 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.

 

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.

 

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 you share.

 

With Love,

The Stanford Seniors Village Team
