August 2019

Greetings Residents and Family Members,

As the last pieces of straw are cleaned up from Stampede, we can all relax and enjoy the summer sunshine.

During this month, residents can look forward to new programs and more activities outside and in the sunroom patios. SkyPointe staff are working hard to open up the Atrium courtyard for independent use. Residents and family members will be notified as soon as this happens.

The Tuck Shop will be opening soon! Recreation staff and residents from our Whitehorn Neighbourhood are working together to put together a shop that will have various items for residents, family members and staff to purchase at a fair price. Grand opening date is set for August 19, 2019. Hours of operation will be posted outside of the shop when complete.

There will be no recreation programming on August 5th during Heritage Day but that will not affect The Nut Man’s visit. They will be setting up in the reception area at 3:30 pm that day.

With all this beautiful weather, a friendly reminder to practice safe sunning; sunscreen, sunglasses, light clothing and staying hydrated. In each neighbourhood dining room, there is a hydration station accessible to residents as well as on the main floor beside reception.

Residents can look forward to a Summer Carnival at the end of the month. Recreation staff will have different activities, prizes, and treats for residents to enjoy in the afternoon.

Please, take a look at our August newsletter (below) and program calendars for upcoming programs and events.  If you have any questions or concerns, please, contact (587)619-6317! Or stop by the recreation office. Our general office hours are 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday to Saturday.

 

Yours sincerely,

Marlee Dukart, Recreation Therapy Manager

Community Outings 

SkyPointe Staff are preparing to start our Community Bus Outings for AgeCare SkyPointe Residents.  As per AgeCare Policies, interested residents/family members will have to ensure the following:

  1. Please be advised that we would require residents interested in going for outings to have a trust account with us so the cost of outings can be charged accordingly. The cost for outings would be $12.50 plus GST within the City limits and $20.00 plus GST outside the City limits. Residents would be responsible for any activity cost.
  2. Residents will be required to sign up for each outing with Recreation Department by the deadline mentioned on the recreation calendars and sign up sheet.
  3. At this time, we would not allow any power chairs or scooters on the bus due to capacity and weight restrictions.
  4. AgeCare SkyPointe have the right to remove a resident(s) from community outings due to extenuating circumstances.
  5. All residents must have a signed and completed Consent for Transportation to Seniors Activities before attending any recreational community outings.
