October 13 2020
We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend.
There are currently no further cases of COVID 19 at White Rock Seniors Village.
We have one resident that is presenting with cold like symptoms. For everyone’s safety, we have had a swab done and are awaiting the results.
All swabs so far have been negative and at this time we remain COVID free.
The protocols still remain in place until the health authorities give us the all clear and the required quarantine time frame has passed. We will update you on this as we continue the daily communications.
The thanksgiving dinner was so well received that the chef and cooks received a standing ovation! All residents received a full turkey dinner with all the trimmings whether in the dining room or delivered to their rooms.
Everyone, residents and staff alike, loved their goodie bags ! Thank you to our amazing independent living residents for taking the time to decorate all these bags.
This paper bag sat in a sanitized area for 24 hours prior to going out.
As you are aware, West Coast Seniors Housing Management was informed on October 2, 2020, that a student on practicum at White Rock Seniors Village (WRSV) September 30 tested positive for COVID-19. The student had contact with 3rd Floor Residential Care residents, as well as 1 staff member.
The staff member in contact with the student was tested, and result was negative.
Out of an abundance of caution, Fraser Health Authority (FHA) declared the 3rd Floor of Residential Care an Outbreak Site. They directed us to isolate 3rd Floor Residential Care residents to their rooms, and to deliver their meals by tray service. .
Fraser Health Authority also directed closure of the 2nd Floor Residential Care Dining Room. The Independent Living Dining room and living areas at WRSV remain open.
We have had to pause visitations for all residents, including window visits. This includes face time and skype, as the recreation team who would normally organize these electronic visits is assisting the care team to ensure residents receive everything they need. We are hoping to be able to reinstate face time and skype calls in the near future.
Caring for our community is our top priority and our WRSV Team is dedicated to ensuring consistent, loving and supportive care at all times.
As we receive further guidance from Fraser Health Authority, we will communicate these directives to you.
We are in communication with them at least once a day.
We provide families with a Daily Email Update. We have also phoned the families of residents, Should the condition of any resident change, their family will be notified immediately.
If you have inquiries, please contact Denise Ewert at firstname.lastname@example.org, Jessica Obra at 604 365 3930 or at email@example.com or Sioban Cussen at firstname.lastname@example.org
All deliveries will be received at the screening door just north of the 1183 Maple Street Entrance. This entrance is located between the 2 main entrances by our garden greenhouse. Please restrict your deliveries to groceries, medications, and gifts. No floral arrangements please. All delivery items will be sanitized and delivered directly to resident suites.
When dropping off items, we would ask that families please follow the following guidelines, in order for your parents or loved ones to receive their deliveries in a timely manner.
We wish to thank staff, residents and families for their anticipated cooperation and understanding.
We would also like to extend our appreciation to the family who provided our staff with a special pizza dinner on thanksgiving!
