This spring, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the management team at Chalmers Lodge has focused on implementing preventive measures to safeguard our residents and staff . To date we have remained COVID-19 free. Thank you to all who have put your trust in us to help you through this challenging time.
Living through a pandemic does take its toll. A recent Angus Reid poll reported that half of Canadians say their mental health has
worsened during the COVID-19 pandemic. Residents are encouraged to focus on selfcare. Come down and chat with others, have a coffee and snack, do a little reading or drawing, join exercise classes, and try to have a daily walk in the garden.
National Mental Health week is May 11-17. Theme: “Let’s Get Real About How We Really Feel”. We will be offering information and presentations on mental health. If you feel you need help in any way… with health, exercising, or finding ways to connect with others, please let staff know.
