Good Afternoon,

 

Selkirk Seniors Village remains COVID-19 Free! Please know that should the status of our community change in any respect, we will immediately inform all resident’s and tenant’s families or primary contact.

The initial COVID-19 dose vaccine clinic went extremely well. We should be notified in the coming week(s) of when the next clinic date will be for the site for the second dose of the vaccine.  Island Health has asked us to continue to stress: These clinics are for residents and tenants only.  Staff and Essential visitors will continue to be contacted by Island Health for appointments at a clinic off-site.

 Recreation

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, love is in the air and it is red, pink, and white all over Selkirk. We have received lovely donations of handmade cards and decorations that are now all over the walls throughout the main floor.

The intergenerational art program with the Selkirk Montessori School was a great success, and we hope to do future programs with the school in the future.

Visitations

 

All social visitation goes through the Visitation Team. You can contact them at 250-940-1028 local 1125.

 

If you are needing to cancel or rebook your visit, please give us as much notice as possible so we can try to fit someone else in that spot. Please send an email to Selkirk-familyvisits@retirementconcepts.com or via phone at local 1125. If families have questions regarding the visitations please contact Brian DelRay at local 1102, either he or another Selkirk Covid Committee member will contact you.

The Recreation team are facilitating FaceTime and Skype to the best of their abilities, while also completing their other duties. Please note that these are the only two platforms we are able to use.  Please reach out to Brian DelRaye-Recreation manager and his team by e-mail at bdelraye@retirementconcepts.com or Selkirk-recreation@retirementconcepts.com, or call to set up a schedule (Brian- 250-940-1028 x1102; Rec Office- 250-940-1028 x1120).  They will be happy to confirm a date and time to connect you with your loved-one.

 

Reminders for your loved one to Stay Safe:

Again, the following four points are so critical to discuss with your loved ones. Please help us by reminding your loved one of the following:

  1. Practice social distancing (6 feet apart)
  2. Perform proper Hand Hygiene (Wash hands frequently for 20 seconds or greater with the alcohol-based sanitizer or soap and hot water). This is very important
  3. Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth
  4. If exhibiting any symptoms (fever, cough and difficulty breathing) please inform staff immediately.

 

Thank You

 

A big heart felt thank you to everyone who is helping keep themselves and others around them safe. It has been a very long, hard, difficult year, and know that we appreciate all the efforts made to stay healthy.
