We celebrate the health of our community and also greatly respect and appreciate the support and patience of all resident families and loved ones, over the last several months as the COVID-19 pandemic emerged.  We also thank you in advance as we approach the next stages to strategically welcome designated family/loved one, as cautiously and as possible.

Gratitude

You may hear a new voice when you call us  – we would like to introduce you to our new Administrative Coordinator, Melissa & Receptionist, Beatriz.  They fit right into our loving community and look forward to meeting you in person when possible in the future.

This week in the #RCSpotlight we introduce you to Fur-Love beautiful Molly, in our eyes a Hero, who is a certified St. John’s Therapeutic Dog Visitor to Guildford Seniors Village over the past few years. She has come to know all her ‘best friends’ in Guildford Seniors Village, and loved to make visiting rounds throughout each of our four neighborhoods, walking around each garden and spending time with dog-lovers. We miss her ‘parent’ Gail, and Molly tremendously during these past few months, and truly look forward to a time when we can resume visits in some fashion.  We cherish their compassion, kindness and commitment to residents. Thank you Molly & Gail!

Warmest regards from the Guildford Seniors Village Team
