Stanford Seniors Village Community Update September 4, 2020
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.
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. Residents and families have all felt the effects of the difficult changes we have had to make, especially the reduced visits and activities. Our staff have felt it as well. They put kindness and care into their work, feel the difficulties of our residents and do their best to provide comfort and ease anxiety. We here at Stanford really do appreciate the co-operation and understanding we have received from everyone involved.
As a reminder:

With these lovely summer days we are ensuring residents are using the courtyards and enjoying the sunshine. 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.
