September 2020 Newsletter

Terry Fox Run

Each year our home participates in the Terry Fox Run. This year’s Terry Fox Run is being held virtually across the country and we are happy to be participating as well! Some of our staff will be participating on Sunday September 20th, and our residents will all take part in the event on Friday September 25th.

If you would like to sponsor us or join our team and donate to the Terry Fox Foundation, you can find our team page at Our goal is to raise $300 – that’s only about $3.00 per resident! All donations this year are taking place online. Please contact Brittany if you have any questions.


Grandparents Day is Sunday, September 13th. In honour of the day we are asking families to send in an outline of grandchildren and great-grandchildren’s hands, similar to the image below. We will be adding the hands of the resident to create a keepsake for them. Please drop off your papers at the front entrance in an envelope or bag labelled “Attention Activities”. Be sure to include the residents name and the child’s name! If you have any questions, please contact Brittany.


Please remember to call Activities to notify us if you plan to do a window visit. There have been multiple instances of window visits taking place where physical distancing is not happening. Please call ahead so we can ensure the safety of all residents and staff in the home.

Don’t forget – you must wear a mask AT ALL TIMES on the property.


Please visit our website frequently for the most up to date information. If you are not on our email list and wish to receive updates via email, please notify Brittany.


The 2020 Flu Vaccine consent forms are being mailed with the September billing.  Please review, sign and return to Fairfield Park by September 13th if possible. We will be administering the flu shots as soon as the vaccine is available in October/November.  Thank you in advance for your continued support and cooperation.
