Welcome to the Weekly Waverly Update!

March 22nd – March 26th

General Managers Message:

The team at the Waverly hopes you are all doing well.  Residents seem happy and they are safe.  Jocelyn’s team is busy planning and delivering recreation activities which will include getting our bus up and running again.  Our new Support Worker, Allie, is spending the afternoons with the Recreation team, I am hopeful we will be able to provide more zoom visits with families with her support.

 

The outside area is set up for those of you who wish to visit outside.  All rules remain in place and social distancing is required.  Designated visitors are able to book through our screener.  Rules for visitations remain in place and we continue to wait for more information from the Health Authority

 

In the residential care side, our Director of Care, Jhun has left the Waverly to be close to home.  We knew when he came here it was temporary.  In this transition period, I will be managing the Director of Care role with the support of the team.

 

The team wishes to thank the Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce for a recent delivery of flowers for the staff to take home-this act of kindness brought smiles to the team.

Recreation

Our Recreation department is gearing up for a wonderful spring!  We will be starting our scenic tours in our resident bus next week.  This will first run in Assisted Living by a lottery draw for who gets to go first.  Next, we will be starting the Resident Care scenic tours mid-April.  We have not set our tour route as of yet.  Dr. Bonnie Henry assurance that we are getting closer to restrictions being lifted helps us plan for normalcy in our communities.  The Chilliwack Beavers are working hard on their gifts for our residents.  Painted pots with planted bulbs will be a wonderful uplifting gift for everyone!  Activities are running as usual with packed fitness classes this week.

 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.

 

Stay Safe, Stay Healthy, And Stay Happy !
