HAPPY NEW YEAR!
To say December was busy, would be an understatement! The month was full of good food and countless hours of fun and celebrations. December 24th, Santa made a virtual call and visited each resident’s room, with the help of Rudolph, 2 elves and Mrs. Claus. This was a wonderful experience that was certainly appreciated by our residents. They were delighted to see Santa, even if it was through a screen! To kick-off our New Year’s Eve celebrations, residents enjoyed a balloon drop at noon and kiss cookies with their supper, before enjoying the fireworks show.
Visiting - Due to the provincial lockdown restrictions, only Essential Caregivers/End-of-life can enter to the home at this time.
COVID-19 Vaccination – 59% of our staff have already received their first dose of Pfizer BIOTech vaccine in London at the Agriplex. We have prepared for resident vaccinations and we expect the vaccine to be delivered in the upcoming weeks. Essential Caregivers will be vaccinated after the residents.
Universal Masking – on December 23, 2020, we initiated universal masking for everyone. Residents are expected to wear masks in all common areas of the home as tolerated - while receiving personal care, when an essential caregiver or staff member are in the resident room, in the dining room until their meal has been delivered.
