Dear Families , Friends, Residents and  our Team members of Summerland Seniors Village;

 

We are pleased to inform you that as our swab tests for COVID-19 have returned negative, the health authorities have removed us from “watch” mode.

This means for AL residents and LTC that essential visits can resume effective tomorrow, December 19th, in the morning.

Please contact main reception for any request for scheduled essential visitors.

 

 

Communication

 

Our emails will now go back to once a week. Should anything change, you will be updated.

 

If you would like to send cards, letters, pictures photos and notes, we are still very happy to deliver them.

 

Visits

 

To book an essential visit, a virtual visit ( Face time or Skype), or arrange a phone call,  Please contact us at   250-404-4311 by phone and jberrisford@retirementconcepts.com by email.

 

 

Deliveries

 

All deliveries continue to be received.  All items are sanitized and delivered directly to the resident’s suites.

 

When dropping items off, we ask families to please follow the guidelines below in order to ensure that your loved one gets their deliveries in a timely manner:

  1. Please use plastic bags, not reusable bags;
  2. Please label all bags with resident’s name and room number;
  3. Please limit drop-offs to essential items; and
  4. If sending food or drinks, please send single serve disposable items, but no homemade food or fruit please.  Please do not send food that need to be refrigerated.

 

 

Teamwork 

 

We wish to thank staff, residents and families for their cooperation and understanding in helping us achieve this goal.

 

Please know that the care and safety of residents is our number one priority. We will always act swiftly and with purpose to keep everyone safe.  If you would like any additional information, please contact Christy Baker at cbaker@retirementconcepts.com

 

 

Sincerely

The Summerland Seniors Village Team
