Guildford Seniors Village – Update May 6, 2020

We hope this message finds you healthy and safe.

At this time, we are pleased to be Outbreak Free. As per the April 30th declaration by Public Health, we are continuing our team effort in following all Public Health issued protocols & compliance to remain as such.

We want to applaud the tremendous effort and commitment of our staff. They have shown and continue to show incredible teamwork and devotion in all departments, to our residents, and to each of you.

We wish to thank you the families for the outpouring of support. All of which has been shared with the entire GSV team. We want you to know how much we cherish your patience and kind messages.

We hope our Community Health Update Communications during this unique time have brought clarity and connection, and we look forward to providing continued bi-weekly updates every Wednesday and Saturday.

Protocols

We continue to follow the direction of our public health officials to the letter, and have full infection prevention and control precautions in place. Staff continue to monitor residents closely and are ensuring the following protocols are being adhered to:

Dining Room

Our four Neighborhood Dining Rooms have been opened to residents with service of home cooked nourishment and hydration of breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as Snack Trolley room service afternoon and evenings.

Recreation

Social calls, Facetime & Skype visits continue to be arranged with families to residents through the support of our Recreation Team to the best of their ability with priority given to resident care. Thank you for your compassion and patience, as requests may not be fulfilled on same day. Feel welcome to send a message to your loved one via email message, photos or children’s artwork to recreation-gsv@retirementconcepts.com

In anticipation of Mother’s Day,  we are planning a Tea & Treats Trolley visit to each, with gift of handmade fabric corsage; we welcome your thoughtful expressions through emailed messages, photos, flowers or cards.

We are excited to celebrate an outstanding 101st Birthday milestone this week- and are humbly reminded that every day truly is a gift – to be enjoyed with gratitude, and with what is most important to you.
