Hello Estate Residents!
We want to take this opportunity to provide you with an update from our recreation team as to how we are supporting our residents during this challenging time. As the COVID-19 situation evolves rapidly and ongoing developments are recommended by Alberta Health Services, we have made changes to our recreation programs.
We recognize how difficult it may be for both our residents and families during this time of uncertainty. At AgeCare Midnapore, the safety and wellbeing of our residents is a priority. Our team is working hard to maintain recreation activities and programs by:
-Small Group Programs: we will continue with very small group programming (max 5 residents at 2meters apart) such as exercise, word games, and engage in social activities such as discussions, current events, etc. We are specifically choosing games that limit residents from touching objects, supplies that cannot be sanitized, or supplies can be thrown out after single use.
-Providing 1:1 Visits – Providing 1:1 visits simply to chat and catch up.
-We have cancelled all main floor, large group programs, and general entertainment. We have also reduced the length of programs which allows us to offer more programs to smaller groups of residents, while still complying with social distancing.
-Connecting residents with their families – We can help you talk to your loved ones via Facetime, skype, emails/letters or phone calls. We have assigned staff during the day to connect with families and residents. Families who wish to connect with their resident using these methods can let us know and we will arrange a time that works best for both parties.. Please note that due to the high volume of requests we are receiving, we are currently providing one call per resident per week. If you wish to connect with your loved one by any of the above methods, please contact reception or recreation.
Thank you for your continued patience and understanding at this time. We want to reassure you that our priority at Midnapore is the well-being of our residents. To connect with your loved one, or if you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact myself or reception.
