Stanford Seniors Village Community Update December 24, 2020
To Our Extended Family,
Happy Christmas Eve!
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.
Christmas in the Village:
We had a very special visit from a lady with a huge heart. Christiana reached out to us in November asking if she would be allowed to write a letter of encouragement and well wishes for the coming year to all of our residents and tenants for Christmas. Last week Christiana came to Stanford Seniors Village to deliver her heartwarming notes and I was able to meet her and thank her for her thoughtfulness. This week all of her lovely letters have been delivered to our residents and tenants.
Annual Sock and Toque Drive:
For the month of December we will be collecting donations for our annual sock and toque drive. The donations we receive will be delivered to the Manna Homeless Society early in the New Year. The Manna Homeless Society supports individuals, couples and families suffering from poverty in the Oceanside area. The society was established in 2011 and operated entirely by volunteers. If you would like to donate new and unused socks and toques to our drive, you are welcome to drop off these items at the front entrance.
A big Thank you to our family and friends that have already donated, your donation is very much appreciated.
We would like to thank those of you who have had a chance to visit loved ones, for following our protocols to help maintain everyone’s safety. These protocols are set forth by the health authorities and we must adhere to them or visitations can be cancelled.

The recreation team are preparing activities to ensure residents can have fun, exercise and socialize with each other in our community. Arts and crafts, active games, brain games, table games and music programs are just some of the programs that we are enjoying. Please remind and motivate your loved ones to participate in these smaller group activities.
Mask use by tenants in common areas:
We have kindly asked our tenants living in Independent Living and Assited Living to wear a mask in areas of the community that are shared and where they are unable to maintain a 6 feet distance. If a tenant doesn’t have a mask they are able to pick up a mask daily at the sign out book on the 1st floor.
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:

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:
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!

Wishing you a wonderful warm and cozy holiday and very best wishes for health and happiness in the coming year.
