July 2020 Newsletter

Due to the changes in visiting restrictions in June, we would like to remind all family members of the following:

  • You must wear a mask/face covering while on the property for any reason. Whether you are dropping off items, visiting at the window or outdoors, you must wear a mask.
  • Only ONE visitor per resident at a time, please. When there are multiple family members visiting at the same time it makes physical distancing extremely difficult.
  • Please call ahead and speak with Activities before any type of visit. With so many residents and family members we are trying to fairly schedule visits for everyone. Activities will schedule a phone, virtual, window or outdoor visit for you. Please give us at least 24 hours’ notice whenever possible.
  • If your family member requires assistance using the phone, please call and speak with Activities to schedule a time for your phone calls.
  • If you are scheduling routine phone visits, we ask that you make arrangements to have telephone services set up in the resident’s room. We can still provide any needed assistance; however it will allow our business lines to remain open for calls related to all of our resident care needs, etc. The most cost effective option is to contact Canquest (519-351-1565).
  • Please only drop off items for residents during the designated time slots. Any items left outside of those times will not be tended to immediately. Drop-off times for non-essential items are as follows:
    • Tuesdays 8-10am
    • Fridays 4:30-6:30pm

We understand that some of these guidelines are difficult for many and not ideal, however we are responding as best as we can to the directions provided from the Ministry of Health. The safety of the residents and staff remains our number one priority.


Because we are only able to communicate with a limited number of family members, please pass on all information to other potential visitors, or direct them to our website – www.fairfieldpark.ca. If you would like to be added to our email list, please email Brittany at brittanyv@fairfieldpark.ca.

Thank you to all of you who have shown your support and appreciation through these difficult transitions. The staff and residents are often overwhelmed with the responses we have received from our community. Please know that your kindness is greatly appreciated.

Thank you to Tom & Claudette Daamen, as well as Kristan Blair for their time and creativity in building our visiting booth. “It’s so nice to see you.”
