The health and safety of team members, residents, and their loved ones, is our number one priority at all times, and we practice rigorous hygiene standards. We will continue to follow all provincial and public health guidelines and will also continue to notify you of any changes as the situation evolves. We are well-informed and responsive at the leading edge in managing the changing situation. We keep clear and transparent lines of communication open with residents and their families.
Thank you to all residents and families for following the protocols to ensure everyone’s safety who lives, works, and visits our retirement communities. We are honored to be your partners in service during this unprecedented time.
Team members are proficient and receive ongoing education on the protocols and infection control practices and every day go above and beyond to maintain safety. A big Thank You to each of you to all team members for having a positive impact in residents’ lives, especially now – you are heroes and your work and commitment is appreciated by all.
To keep residents and team members safe, everyone requires screening and a declaration before entering a retirement community.
Each retirement community has extra hygiene protocols and sanitizing procedures including common areas and high-frequency touchpoints such as reception desks, hallway railings, and elevator buttons.
Spring Living Retirement Communities has implemented physical distancing in all our common amenity areas and dining rooms. We have rearranged the dining areas to ensure that residents maintain appropriate distancing. We have placed physical-distancing reminder stickers and posters in areas where people usually come together, such as reception, dining entrances, inside and outside the elevators, fitness centers, and multi-purpose rooms.
Spring Living Retirement Communities has implemented the mandatory use of approved face masks and other Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) by team members as per the provincial guidelines to further protect residents and themselves from potential asymptomatic and symptomatic individuals. Residents are strongly encouraged to wear a face mask when they are out of their suites.
In accordance with the Provincial Order mandate, fully immunized employees may work in more than one retirement home or health care setting. Anyone at risk of exposure is required to self-isolate for a minimum of 14 days or follow the local public health direction.
Spring Living Retirement Communities believes that visits are significant for both residents and families.
Residents in a retirement community may be permitted to leave the community for walks or essentials (ex. shopping, medical appointments, etc.). For overnight absences, please speak with your management team for more information
We welcome new residents to our Spring Living Retirement Community. Move-ins can occur if the community is not in an outbreak.
Prior to move-in, the resident must have a laboratory-based Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test and have a negative result. For fully immunized residents, a laboratory-based Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test is required at time of move-in. The resident must be placed on isolation if the test result is pending. If the test is negative, isolation can be discontinued.
For partially immunized or unimmunized residents, a laboratory-based Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test is required at time of move-in. The resident must be placed on isolation for a minimum of 10 days. A
second negative laboratory-based Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test result on day 8 is required to discontinue isolation on day 10; otherwise, isolation should be maintained until day 14.
Recently recovered residents who are within 90 days from a prior laboratory confirmed infection are not required to be tested or placed in isolation. We look forward to welcoming you!
