Hello Family Members & Guildford Seniors Village Community,  

We strive for a new balance in continued protocols, family comfort and peace, and ensuring residence thrives in good health.  We encourage all to continue with best practises in hand washing, mask wearing, social distancing and education awareness,  including self-care as we approach flu season and amongst Covid 19 infection control. 

Guildford Seniors Village continues to sustain a healthy community.  As we approach flu season, Nurses will be reaching out to families regarding vaccination consents, as vaccines will be ordered soon for residents. 

Protocols

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 restrictions.

Deliveries: kindly press the button at the speaker (to your left) to inform our team if you’ve delivered an item in the lobby vestibule. 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 items and ensure no risk to community (no sharps; infection control & food items due to specialty diets, texture).  Thank you.

Dining Experiences are Resident’s Choice

Our home cooked menu within four Neighborhood Dining Rooms, offers variety and Resident’s Choice favourites such as daily home-made soups, fish & chips and deli platter.

Did you know that each Sunday features a traditional roast?  Whether roast of ham, turkey or beef (or vegetarian option), one can feel right at home through dining experiences.  Bon Appetite!

Aaah September…it’s that time of year that the Season teaches each us to embrace change. 

There is much beauty in the passion, creativity & caring of those around us.

In Guildford Seniors Village we cherish seasonal flower & leaves, autumn colours, inspired painting of nature scenes, Gratitude Tree, Autumn wreaths (made from coffee filters), and all things pumpkin spice.

This is Therapeutic Recreation – mindful creations of social, emotional, physical, intellectual and spiritual opportunities.  We embrace a philosophy in what is possible, a discovery process of inspiration and teamwork. Our common goal is resident quality of life and joy, in what is meaningful to each individual.
