To families of Millrise Seniors Village residents:

We have been informed that Alberta Health Services (AHS) and Age Care will be taking over the staffing of government funded operations at Millrise Seniors Village. This  includes the Long-Term Care and Supported Living Units.

 Based on the last update yesterday, the number of COVID-positive residents totaled 20 (nine in Long Term Care and eleven in Supported Living), all of whom were in isolation, 15 of which were doing quite well – and all being monitored closely.  

 When the site became COVID-active, we initially lost 34 staff who took a leave of absence and another 30 (management and front-line staff), who were affected and placed in self-isolation at home. The number of affected staff currently totals 13.

 AHS has asked that should there be questions about residents, or requests for community updates, to please contact them directly for information.
