Welcome to the Weekly Waverly Update!

The sunshine has been shining in these days bringing our residents so much joy!  We are happy to announce a successful love filled Valentine’s Day.

With the second dose of Covid 19 vaccines being administered to our residents last Saturday – We are feeling both confident & positive with our safe environment.  75% of our staff have had both doses of the vaccine.   Health authorities, restrictions will remain in effect for our tenants, residents and families.  We will be continuing to follow the direction of our provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry.

Please check out our most recent updates/changes:

Window Visits are continuing with the same following guidelines:

  1. Please plan visits with a limit of up to 6 people (Window Visits only)
  2. No open windows, please use telephones
  3. For all residents in Complex Care, window visits can still be safely scheduled and supported through the care staff.

Recreation Program

February has been a busy month for the Recreation team here at Waverly!  We are proud and happy to say that activities are happening each and every single day.  We continue to support the body with Fun & Fitness, the mind with Crossword Fun and Brainteasers, the excitement with our travelogue movies. This week exploring through Ireland, our new ice cream socials on Fridays and of course happy hour for Fridays.  Valentines was a treat for our residents with a box of Girl Guide cookies donated to each and every one.  Was a day filled with love – Like all days here at 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.

With Easter coming up, for floral deliveries, please ensure there are no LILIES in the arrangement for allergy precautions.

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.
