October 2014 Activity Calendar and Newsletter – BCLM

Once again…the weather is quickly changing!

A reminder that Calgary is definitely not known for its steady weather conditions and we are seeing less of our hot summer sun. Recreation hosts outings throughout the year, which means anyone going on an outing must be prepared for weather conditions. Please be sure to provide loved ones with warm coats, scarves, hats and gloves, etc. as we do not provide any ourselves. We want everyone to enjoy themselves while being safe and warm!

Hot Off the Press

LINKages is back! To all the LINKages members, our wonderful student volunteers are back and ready to connect the gap between the generations. They will be visiting:

  • Thursday October 2nd at 3:30pm
  • Thursday October 16th at 3:00pm

Recreation Outings Policy Update

There have been many questions and concerns regarding who can go on different outings. The Recreation department has a strict outings policy that outlines what makes a resident an appropriate candidate for an outing.

The 2 main factors that are important when planning for an outing are:

  • An individual must not be on any type of modified diet (ie. minced or pureed)
    • If an individual is on a modified diet or has that specific transfer status, we do also provide outings that do not require getting off the bus (ie. Scenic drives)
    • An individual’s transfer status must not be any kind of mechanical lift or 2 person transfer

These factors are important to both the resident’s safety and the safety of our staff. Please check with Recreation if you are unsure of your/or your loved ones diet or transfer status and see which outing are right for you! If you have any questions or concerns regarding the Recreation Outing Policy, please contact Renee (Programs Manager) at 403-873-2612 in Recreation.

Due to the nature of in-house events that include food, only individuals with regular diets may attend. Please always check with Recreation if you have any questions regarding this policy or regarding the final list.
