Hello Everyone, July 29, 2020
We have enjoyed being able to welcome family and loved ones back. It has been beautiful to see people smile and cry tears of joy as they are reunited. Please know we are doing everything we can during these times to think of innovative ways to make it happen as well as possible, and we have been working hard at recruiting and training staff to assist with screening and visitation
In other positive news, both both hairdressers are reinstated with their safety plans and Residents are happy to have this service back.

- You will be led to a sanitized room, or garden area, there will be a 6 foot table set up so you are able to keep social distance
- Staff will bring your family member to the designated visitor’s area for a 30 minute visit.
- Following your visit the staff will sanitize the room and bring your loved one back to their home.
- If you are ill or not feeling well please cancel your visit and stay home
- asking the residents of AL/IL who are doing their “own socially distanced visits outside” that they come check in with reception so we are able to screen and track all visitation as directed by Island Health
There will be no changes for families wanting to visit loved ones in Palliative Care. Concerns can be sent directly to the General Manager who will assist you with resolution. firstname.lastname@example.org
