June 2019

Hello Residents and Family Members!

May was a wonderful month at SkyPointe! We celebrated all our mothers on Mother’s Day with a tea and concert with Aven Grace, had a few furry visitors from Tails to Tell rescue for a Cat Cafe, and residents, staff and family members had the opportunity to view all the different art pieces that have been created over the year at the Expressive Art Show.

Summer has finally arrived! Recreation programs and activities will shift towards a seasonal focus! Summer sport and craft activities, and more time spent in the sun rooms and patios sipping iced tea and reminiscing about the Good Ole Summer Days. With the turn in seasons, just a friendly reminder to practice Safe Sun’ing’! Wear sunscreen when going outside, limit your sun time. drink plenty of fluids and cover up; hats, sunglasses, jackets, etc.

June is an important month for SkyPointe! Residents and staff are celebrating its first anniversary; Happy Birthday SkyPointe! On June 4th, residents and staff will all come together in the afternoon for a special party! Everyone is welcome to attend. Some of the other events and programs you can look forward to are the Take Me Out To the Ball Game Father’s Day Social, Happy Hour with Dwayne Fettig, Seated Soccer during SkyPointe’s Sports League and closer to the end of the month, we start our Stampede preparations, starting our celebrations with the 2019 Stampede Presentation.

The resident and family experience survey is now open! The AgeCare team appreciates you taking the time to complete the survey. The resident and family food council and resident and family councils will be taking a short break after their June meetings for the summer months and will resume in September.

Please, take a look at our June 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

One Minute of Learning

SkyPointe Safety Awareness

Each month, there will be a different code posted. This reviews the different safety standards and techniques used at SkyPointe.

Code of the Month: Code Grey

The designated phrase to alert staff to the need to shelter in place in response to external air quality concerns, extreme weather hazards, and/or significant infrastructure loss or failure because of an external emergency or disaster.

What to do in a code grey situation:

  • Remain indoors. All residents, families, staff and visitors are not to leave the building until the incident commander has given the all clear or a Code Green has been initiated.
  • All residents, families, staff and visitors in courtyard need and will be made aware of the situation and should return to the inside of the building.
  • Lock down notices will be posted on all exits and AgeCare staff will assist and advise all residents, family members and guests in what to do during the Code Grey.

For more information, ask your neighbourhood nurse or one of SkyPointe’s onsite educators.
