April 2022 Newsletter
A friendly reminder to all of our family members to check our website monthly for a copy of our newsletter and calendar. Indoor visits no longer require an appointment, but if you are wanting to set up a virtual or outdoor visit please call the Activation Department or visit our website to book!
We have had some recent changes to our team! We would like to congratulate Tracey Maxim, as she transitions to her new Head Office role, as well as Stephanie North, as she works alongside Tracey Maxim for her transition to be the new Administrator. Leighara Arnold is now the new Director of Activation.
April is Volunteer Month!
We will be honoring our Volunteers who always make a big difference in the lives of our Residents. If you are interested in becoming a Volunteer at Fairfield Park, please contact our Activity Department and an orientation to our Home can be arranged. Volunteers provide many complimentary services and programs, such as assisting with dining, shopping, games, fund raising, one on one visiting, palliative care, gardening and special events.
Resident Satisfaction Surveys
We will begin our Resident/Family Satisfaction Surveys for 2022 to ensure the best care possible is being provided to our residents. Family input will be required for residents who have a CPS score of 3 or higher. The survey can either be completed through the URL we will send out or you may contact the Activities Department.
Any resident who currently resides in basic (ward) accommodation that has previously had a rate reduction completed, you must complete a new application form. Your current rate reduction expires June 30/22. If this applies to you or your loved one, or if any resident in basic (ward) accommodation requires a rate reduction for the first time, please call Tricia for more information. We will need the resident’s 2021 Notice of Assessment to do the application form
VISITING..Just a reminder to anyone that may be coming on the property and into the facility – masks must be worn at ALL times while visiting, including in resident’s room. Thank you.
RESIDENT SMOKING…If a resident asks you for a tobacco product or to take them outside so that they may smoke, it is imperative that you speak to an RN or RPN, who is aware of the resident’s plan of care, before doing anything. This is necessary, for the safety of the resident and for the safety of others.
