March 2020 has been an extraordinary month as the COVID-19 virus has impacted our usual way of life here at Chalmers Lodge. Fortunately, as this newsletter goes to print, we are happy that the measures we have implemented currently have ensured our residents and staff are healthy and safe. We recognize that you may have some questions about our response to this evolving situation. Read on for our latest updates…
Residents please remember, if you feel unwell, develop a cough, a fever, nausea, diarrhea or find that you are having difficulty breathing, please let the nursing staff know immediately, and they will assist you.
So far, a number of Care Homes in Vancouver have had outbreaks which is why staff and management are working 24/7 to keep our residents safe. Chalmers Lodge has strict screening of staff and visitors are limited to essential services only. All assistance with activities of daily living is now being provided by Lodge nursing staff, not private home care.
We appreciate your patience as we work to ensure your continued health and safety.
