Hello Family Members & Guildford Seniors Village Community,

 

In times when infection control is at the forefront of all that we do, we want to take a moment to encourage you to continue best practises in mask wearing, hand washing & social distancing, and loyalty to Medical Orders from Dr. Bonnie Henry as they apply to the region in which you live.  We are as vigilant as ever in sustaining a healthy community for residents, and essential workers in mutual collaboration with your efforts, compliance and understandingThank you all.

In light of Visitations, we continue to be mindful of protocols, self-care and visitation support.  Please consider our *new* window visit instead of entering lobby area, if you are being extra cautious on behalf of your loved one’s safety.

Protocols

Designated Visitor protocols continue – each resident or alternate decision-maker, may designate one designated family/support person who is essential to maintaining physical and emotional health.

 

Strict compliance measures to all protocols remain unchanged in Guildford Seniors Village, following the direction of our public health officials, including preventative & enhanced infection control, monitoring residents’ & staffs’ health closely, and visitor designations.

Please label your delivery with resident name, and we will ensure sanitizing and delivery to loved one.  For resident safety, kindly refrain from passing items via windows as we must sanitize all.  Thank you.
