Hello everyone,                                                              December 1, 2020

 

 

Staff and Managers have all been bustling about with festive holiday decorating.  Our courtyards are all lit up along with colourful outdoor Christmas lights.  The Recreation department has been busy with Residents – tree decorating, hanging snowflakes and listening to Christmas songs.  They are also working on special crafting projects.

To celebrate December1st Residents of Assisted Living were treated to sausages, waffles with apple cinnamon and fruit salad.  Our Assisted Living team has been working on the Corner Store.  The Grand Opening to be announced.  There will be a greater selection of items to purchase so that Residents do not need to access the community during the Pandemic.

We are doing our very best to improve service and quality of life.  We are asking that everyone do their part in order to keep the Residents safe.  Please ensure you are limiting your risk of exposure by keeping interactions within your core bubble.  Visitors please note that parking is limited.  We are unable to allow access to enter at the back of the building so staff and visitors are required to walk around the building to the front entrance for screening.  Please allow yourself plenty of time prior to your visit.  Please see the attached diagram with the green arrows for ways to access the front entrance.

As a reminder, smoking is not permitted anywhere on the NSV property.   We are adhering to strict protocols, you will be required to wear the face mask provided to you, which must be worn at all times during the duration of your visit.  Please ensure that you are going directly to and from your visit.
