AgeCare Weekly Update for October 16, 2020: Voting for Upcoming Provincial Election

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 communities and organization-wide.

  1. Information and announcements – this week, we are sharing information about how our residents can vote in the upcoming provincial election.
  2. Recreation calendars as the need to stay active, intellectually stimulated, and socially connected never ends.
  3. A weekly shout-out to celebrate the great work and activities happening at our AgeCare communities.

As we move into a different stage of the pandemic, our weekly updates will be sent from a central location rather than individually from each site. You will continue to receive them on Fridays.

We do hope that you find them helpful. Thank you all for your continued support.

Sincerely,

AgeCare Communications

Weekly Shout-Out

This week’s shout-out is from AgeCare Walden Heights

We would like to give a shout-out to the various team members that are organizing and implementing the influenza vaccinations this year. With the pandemic at the top of everyone’s mind, this year’s efforts are even more important.

The Care team has worked hard to get informed about the upcoming flu season and developed a plan of action. With the support of all departments, they have prepared the community for our influenza clinic, moved furniture, and transported residents.

We are well on our way to getting the staff and residents vaccinated.
