“An optimist is the human
personification of spring.”
~ Susan J. Bissonette
The need to stay active, intellectually stimulated and socially connected never ends – even during these unprecented times. Our recreation team is working hard to create engaging activities to enrich the mind, body and spirit, while ensuring residents can maintain appropriate physical distancing.
We recognize how difficult it may be for both our residents and families during this time of uncertainty. As the COVID-19 situation evolves rapidly and ongoing developments are recommended by Alberta Health Services, we have made changes to our recreation programs. 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 4 residents at 2meters apart) to play physical games 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 for a game of crib, to play some music or simply to chat.
Virtually connecting residents with their families – Book a FaceTime for Mothers Day. Sunday May 10th 9:30-3:30 (one call per family)
Outdoor Family Visits – we are waiting for direction on how to systematically introduce family visits. At this time (April 30) – we are not allowing family visits. When we do allow them, the process will be as follows:
Thank you for your continued patience and understanding at this time. We want to reassure you that our priority at Midnapore is the health and 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.
