To all Family Members:

We are happy to announce we remain COVID FREE! We had an exciting day on Wednesday January 13 as Fraser Health and the Dufferin Care Centre team vaccinated all of our residents (except those who did not have consent or those currently in hospital*)

Many of the residents were very happy to be receiving their injection, and said it hurt way less than the flu shot. Many said they did not even feel it. Congratulations to all those residents who received their first Pfizer vaccine on January 13, 2021!

We welcomed a few new residents over the holidays to our home, so we wanted to remind all the families about how to book their visit and dropping off treats/items for their loved ones.

Please kindly remember before your visit to ensure you do the pre-screening questionnaire. If you are feeling unwell, have a temperature, have been in contact with someone who is covid positive or have travelled outside of Canada in the last 14 days, to kindly reschedule your visit.

We continue to allow our scheduled visits to families 7 days a week. We offer Facetime, Window and In-Person visits. Please kindly send your request for an appointment to have a visit at dcc-familyvisits@retirementconcepts.com or by our new designated phone number if this is more convenient for you, the number is 604-472-4151. Please keep in mind that appointments for visits can be made Monday-Friday 9 am-5 pm only.

Please kindly note, if you are dropping off food for your loved one, according to Fraser Health’s directive the items must be non-perishable ONLY (must be consumed immediately, we cannot store any non-dried goods). Please ensure the non-perishable items have the name of the resident, room number and date it was packaged. Flowers are being accepted.

Have a fantastic week!
