COVID-19 Update – April 9, 2021

April 9, 2021

After a long year, we are so happy to welcome visitors back, with relaxed restrictions, into the assisted living residence and the care home.   It is wonderful to see families reuniting and most importantly, hugging their loved ones once again.  Residents are also enjoying some favourite foods and treats, seeing a few four-footed furry friends and, with spring here, getting outside to the park or the beach.

We appreciate residents’ and visitors’ patience and support as we gradually adjust to safely accommodating more visits.  Our number one priority remains the health and safety of our residents and staff.   While we are grateful that vaccinations reduce the risk of COVID-19, the virus can still spread.  Following all public health guidelines including not visiting if feeling at all unwell, cleaning hands frequently, wearing a mask, and strictly abiding to B.C.’s directions for social gatherings in and outdoors, are extremely important to keeping everyone – residents, visitors and our staff – safe.  Thanks to everyone for doing their part.

To schedule a visit with your loved one living in West Court, please email westcourtvisits@kinvillage.org or call our visitor host line at 604-943-0155 x290.   For visits with Assisted Living residents, please email  al-lpn@kinvillage.org or call the nurse at 604-943-0155 ext 412.

Please stay safe, be kind and thank you for your continued support.
