Welcome to the Weekly Waverly Update!

   April 12th – 16th     

General Managers Message:

We hope all of you are enjoying the sunshine we are having.

COVID new cases have been very high in BC –reaching over 1000 new cases a few days back-yesterday’s new cases were 873 (https://experience.arcgis.com/experience/a6f23959a8b14bfa989e3cda29297ded ).  These numbers are important reminders that we must continue to be diligent.  Even though our doors have opened we ask that you follow all the COVID safety items and guidelines.  These guidelines include cleaning the room and what you may have touched after your visit, and wearing your masks for the entire time you are in the building.  Although we have had our vaccines (both residents and staff) we are still susceptible to an outbreak.

 

I continue to work on how we can have visits into the evening and I hope more will come on this soon.

 

Jocelyn’s team has received 2 new ipads with zoom installed so we can continue to do zoom calls with families.  In addition our facility medical director – Dr. Low in collaboration with the Chilliwack Division of Family Practice – purchased 2 ipads for the nursing team so they can work with physicians to do zoom calls with residents, as well as other professionals such as wound clinicians.  We were very appreciative

 

 

We have been very happy to see you all return and we love hearing your laughter and joy.

 

 

Recreation

Activities have been a lot of fun with more and more residents joining in.  We believe the sunshine and spring weather is bringing everyone together here at the Waverly.

Deliveries and Drop-offs:

All deliveries will continue to be received at the front desk and will be sanitized, bagged and we will call the tenants to come and pick up their items right away.  Please ensure you label all items with name and room number to ensure all packages are received as quickly as possible.

 

Reminders for your loved one to Stay Safe!

Please help us by reminding each resident daily of the following four items:

  1. Practice social/physical 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 seconds 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.

 

Stay Safe, Stay Healthy, And Stay Happy !
