Dear Resident or Family Member,
We remain committed to providing updates to our residents, families, and staff at AgeCare. As such, we are providing weekly updates to keep you all informed on what is happening at our community and organization-wide.
These weekly updates will include:
These updates are sent Friday each week. We hope that you find them helpful. Thank you all for your continued support.
To minimize the spread of the virus in our communities, all staff and essentials visitors must wear the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). While most circumstances will only require a procedural mask, we have outlined the different types of PPE that you will see in our communities, who will be wearing them, and when.
Masks should be brought and worn by essential visitors during all visits. Staff also wear masks throughout their shifts and when providing resident care.
Gowns are worn by staff when entering a room of a resident on isolation as a contact/ droplet precaution.
Eye protection is worn by staff when entering a room of a resident on isolation as a contact/ droplet precaution.
Gloves are used by staff when entering a room of a resident on isolation as a contact/ droplet precaution.
N95 masks are used by staff when entering a room of a resident on isolation as a contact/ droplet precaution.
Essential visitors do not need to wear an N95 mask, and would not be present in the room when a specific aerosol-generating medical procedure requiring an N95 mask is conducted.
For more information on Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), read AgeCare’s One Minute of Learning.
The need to stay active, intellectually stimulated, and socially connected never ends – even during these unprecedented times. Our recreation team is working hard to create engaging activities to enrich the mind, body and spirit that maintain physical distancing.
Thank you to the entire reception team for your dedication, hard work and commitment to our residents and families. Your compassion and kindness is inspiring.
