Dear Guildford Seniors Village Community,

 

Wonderful to welcome you to your visits with your loved one in GSV.

As we continue with health protocols, vaccinations, and focus on best care & life enrichment for individuals in GSV community, we take a moment to cherish that no resident has experienced covid to-date.  We continue with our vigilance, and with joy.

 

As our Health Pre-Screener Jivan says it best, “Keep moving from Strength to Strength”.

This is what we wish for each of you.  Thank you for your collaboration in all efforts & understanding.
