YOU ARE INVITED to a Family Christmas Party here,
at Fairfield Park on Wednesday December 4th
Please join us for entertainment, appetizers
and refreshments in both Westside and Courtyard areas.
Please RSVP.

Many family members have booked private Family Christmas Parties in our activity room this year. We will
endeavor to have the room set up for you but in some cases we may need help to set up the tables and chairs as there are many families and activities scheduled this month.
We are unable to schedule any private parties in our activity room on Dec. 25th.

Santa will be here at 9:30 Christmas morning to deliver the gifts from under our Christmas trees. All residents receive a gift from our Volunteers. There will be a social with a self-serve pastry bar open to all residents and their family between 2:00 – 3:30 that afternoon in our Westside activity room.

If you are planning to take a loved one out over the holidays please be sure to let the RN/RPN know a few days ahead of time so that medications or treatments may be prepared.

The traditional turkey dinner with all the trimmings will be served on Christmas Day.  Once again we are limiting dinner guests that evening to spouses of residents only.  You must make arrangements ahead of time by calling Brittany, our Director of Activation.  Dinner tickets may be purchased for $10.00 each.

Please remember that we have staff and residents that are very sensitive to fragrances. We ask that you do not wear perfumed lotions or fragrance or purchase those for gifts.

All new clothing must be labeled by our environmental team. If you purchase any clothing, please make sure you drop it off at the front desk in a clearly marked bag with the residents name on it, so we can send it down for labelling.

As we enter the winter season we are reminded of many things including the return of influenza.  Since this viral infection can cause even a healthy person to become very ill, it is important that we protect the residents in our home.  In order to prevent the virus from entering our home, we encourage all visitors to get their flu shot.  It is also important to use good hand hygiene at all times but especially when entering and leaving our home.  If you are ill or do not feel well yourself, please stay home!

Our hairdressing services will be available all day December 23rd and 24th to prepare for Christmas.  Our hairdressers will be off on Christmas Day and Boxing Day.

From all of the Staff, Volunteers and Residents at Fairfield Park, we wish you a safe and

Happy Holiday Season and a Happy New Year!
