Guildford Seniors Village – Update 13 June 2020

Residents and all Essential Staff continue to be healthy, due to unchanged protocols, including restricted visitors.  Please note – with approved exception in palliative circumstances, our Care Team will reach out to you.

Protocols

In compliance with Health Authority, we continue to adhere to strict compliance to the direction of our public health officials, preventative & enhanced infection control, monitoring residents’ & staffs’ health closely.

We look forward to celebrating Father’s Day with Tim Hortons coffee & donuts during the week, and on Sunday, June 21 we will deliver Favourites Snacks for all Dads, with an especially designed Room Service Trolley.

As we are closed to Visitors, we encourage you to connect with your loved ones via phone, Facetime or Skype by emailing recreation-gsv@retirementconcepts.com  or call 604-582-0808 ext. 203, in order to arrange a scheduled date and time.

Also, please feel welcome to send messages or photos to your loved ones by emailing  recreation-gsv@retirementconcepts.com and we will be pleased to deliver to your loved one.

Following protocols for small group resident programs, we prioritize most meaningful interests of each resident, within each of our four neighborhoods.

Deliveries

In anticipation of Father’s Day Celebrations, please feel welcome to bring gifts, cards prior to June 19th and we will arrange timely delivery for resident joy. Kindly press the button at the speaker (to your left) to inform our team if you’ve delivered an item.  Please do label your delivery with resident name, and we will ensure sanitizing and delivery to loved one. Please no food items for residents. Thank you!

Gratitude

We are grateful to the talents of our special network of Volunteers and specialty program leaders, and their patience especially during these isolation times. We are looking to adapt programs to ‘virtual connection’ for residents’ delight, such as:

Stay Tuned!

In addition to missing our extended visiting family and loved ones of residents, we very much miss our Pet visitors.

We would love to welcome you to email us a photo of your pet (& name), and we will be featuring these fur-loves in future updates and display in house- a fun way to say hello and bring a smile to each. For your Fur-Loves’ Spotlight, please send these photos to sbarr@retirementconcepts.com

From All of Us in Guildford Seniors Village, we wish each of you continued health excellence.
