Home / COVID-19 Updates
Dear families and friends,
We’ve all be inundated with information on COVID-19 and with our elderly population being the most vulnerable, it’s incumbent upon me to reassure all the families at L’chaim and any future families considering L’chiam as a home for their loved one, of all the efforts we are making to keep our home COVID free and safe for our residents.
L’chaim follows all the guidelines from The Ontario Government, Public Health and the IPAC (Infection Prevention and Control) team from NYGH. Our staff are highly trained in infection prevention and control and have adjusted to a new way of life. This means we disinfect every surface in our home after it is touched or used by any resident or staff and social distancing in effect throughout the home. Every aspect of the home is approached in way to keep our residents and staff safe. Our home is stalked with necessary PPE and fully staffed with dedicated and loving people.
I am proud of my staff who have found creative ways to keep our residents busy throughout the day with meaningful, real life and recreational activities while maintaining social distancing and eliminating shared items. It is a sight to see! Feel free to give us a call and learn more about how we spend our days at L’chaim.
L’chaim is safely accepting new residents to the home. We have created a system to lovingly transition a new resident to L’chaim. New residents are cared for and kept busy through any isolation period that is required. Families are in touch and have scheduled video calls to see their loved ones.
We know this is a difficult time and our elderly residents are the priority. Our approach is to stay safe, positive, and live every day with the goal to care for our residents with respect, dignity and have some fun!
To all the families and friends, I say L’chaim, To Life!
