To all of our Long term Care and Independent Living families June 8 2020

 

This year is speeding away and it’s hard to believe it is already June and the summer months are almost upon us. We know that these past few months have been full of changes to our programming due to our increased measures to ensure your continued health and safety. We thank you for your understanding and patience as we move through these changes and work with you to discover new opportunities and methods of being engaged, active and staying connected in our communities. New information is being provided to us continually and we are adjusting and adapting as quickly as possible while we remain committed to providing superior seniors care and services within our communities.

With this in mind we have already been able to re-instate small group programming within some of our assisted and independent living communities. As we continue to work on the assisted and independent living program offerings we are also bringing back small group programming within our residential care communities. In order for these small groups to be successful there are additional steps that our recreation departments and care staff must adhere to. If you are interested around what those additional steps are, you welcome to ask your Therapeutic Recreation Manager for those details.

In order for small group programs to continue to be offered at your community we ask that you please respect the Therapeutic Recreation department at your community as they roll this out. Go to them if you have questions as they will be happy to explain how it is all happening. Please keep in mind that the one to one visits and the facetime/skype calls for family connections are still available through your Therapeutic Recreation department.

While we are able to bring back small group programs in addition to the one to one visits we are still unable to accommodate any outside visitors to our communities. This includes family, friends, volunteers, and entertainers. We are working on how and when we are able to bring these back and information will be provided as soon as this changes. Until then, continue to wash your hands, maintain physical distancing and stay safe and healthy.
