Welcome to the Weekly Waverly Update!

June 10-2021

General Manager’s Message:

Welcome to June-the year is flying by.

We had a small COVID vaccine clinic on Friday the 4th for all our residents who had not had their second dose of the vaccine have not had it.

 

The Foot care Company that we have been working with for some time has ended their contract with us.  They have enjoyed working with us over the years but they are finding that they are very busy and unable to keep us on as clients.  I have located a new foot care nurse and an working on finalizing the details.  Her rate will be slightly higher.  She will be charging $40.00 for a session (previously $38.00).  We are hoping to transition over the next few weeks.  Anyone receiving foot/nail care will need to complete a new consent for this company-the nurses will have a copy of the consent for you to sign.

 

The Waverly will be installing a 2nd elevator or back up elevator.  It is smaller than the regular one but will work as a back-up in the event of an issue with the older existing elevator.  The planning for this has begun and the work will start in the next weeks.

 

Our new landscapes have been doing a fabulous job and our roses are looking beautiful!

 

Thanks and have a great week.

Suzanne Darling I General Manager

 

 

Recreation

It is exciting news we have been given a grant for a Music Therapy Program.  Our Recreation Manager Jocelyn has worked tirelessly on this project to finally see it come to life.  The next steps will be educating our resident on the program so they can understand and take part!  We are always focused on providing our residents with new and exciting activities to be a part of.

Bingo is in full swing and with new residents moving in we find our group grows and grows each month.  Lots of smiling faces about this!

We have ordered new patio furniture and umbrellas for our court yards.  We know how much the residents love to enjoy our beautiful grounds.  This should be a cheery addition to our sunny days ahead!

Meals

Wonderful news – We have set up the dining room tables to how they were pre Covid-19 after following directions from Fraser health.  This is exciting news for our residents, it means now being able to carry out conversations with their friends and neighbors while they dine.  Previously we noticed with the spacing, it made it hard to hear each other talk.  Sometimes it’s the little things that make a difference and bring us together J

General Store

Don’t forget our general store is open for business.  With families welcomed back to visit in residents suites, remember you can always stop by for an ice cream treat or glass of wine!

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 !
