Easter Message to Families

Blog post


Dear Families,

Thank you for your patience and understanding in these uncertain times as we prioritize the health and safety of our Residents and Team Members. We understand that some of the precautionary measures we are taking to best protect your loved one from the spread of COVID-19 come at a cost of personal contact. We encourage you to be creative with your communication; additional phone calls, personal letters, or engaging through video chat.  The important thing is to keep personal connections.

The story of Easter is a good news story, filled with hope, and it will be remembered and celebrated many different ways this weekend! Social distancing and isolation will see many churches empty over Easter, but the real meaning is focused on people, people like your loved ones, and not on buildings. Some of our Residents have expressed concern that they will be disappointing family by declining invitations to Easter dinners and parties. We trust that you will continue to support our safety efforts by not inviting your loved one to leave their community.

We will celebrate Easter with our Residents, but only in ways that allow us to honour the social distancing that keeps everyone safe. It may be in small groups, outdoors where people can have plenty of individual space, or music in a courtyard where our Residents are able to join in by opening their windows.

We are very grateful to you for your understanding and commitment to taking actions to best protect the health and safety of our Residents. If you have any questions or would like additional information, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.

We wish you peace and blessings this Easter and trust that you will be able to celebrate with your loved one soon.
