Guildford Seniors Village – Update 19 June 2020

We remain a healthy community, all residents and essential service providers.

Please know that we will be adapting our Bi-Weekly Community Update to a weekly update, communicating every Wednesday, both in emails to family and on our website.

If there is any information that you wish to read about, please inform us at 604-582-0808 ext 125 or email sbarr@retirementconcepts.com  Our goal is to ensure you are top of mind with all communications, in health status of residents and community, joy of residents,  and any *new* news.

What a joy to deliver Tim Hortons coffee & donuts to all the gentleman in Guildford Seniors Village, during this week!  The Therapeutic Recreation Team are buzzing with creative ways to create purpose, smiles and thriving social connections for all individuals living in Guildford Seniors Village. Before ‘Covid’ and now, we continue to adapt favorite hobbies and interests, and often, we discover new joy or ways to engage in meaningful purpose.  On Sunday, June 21 we will deliver Favorite Snacks especially for all Dads. Small group resident programs continue in June within each of our four neighborhoods – bingo is back and a popular program!
