COVID-19 Information

Verve’s COVID-19 Response

Our approach to the COVID-19 pandemic has been defined by these values, with the safety and security of our residents of paramount importance to us. Verve continues to be a vibrant, fun, engaging, and safe place to live, thanks to our incredibly creative and caring team members who go the extra mile in all that they do. Visit one of our 32 retirement residence and see what living with Verve is all about.

“My family and I feel deeply blessed to have been able to relocate my father to Verve Senior Living. Throughout the process the management team went far above and beyond at every turn to help us. This was especially appreciated given Covid 19. They were patient, kind and empathetic, offering guidance and help the likes of which we had never experienced elsewhere. ”

SAFE & SECURE
Our COVID-19 Safety Protocols
At all times we must follow the guidelines set forth by the local provincial health authority. In many cases we implement safety initiatives before the governments mandates them. While we pride ourselves on doing everything we can to keep our residences safe, it does alter the way we connect with the outside community. Despite COVID’s interruption to our regularly scheduled lives, Verve continues to be a vibrant, fun, engaging, and safe place to live thanks to our incredibly creative and caring team members who go the extra mile in all that they do. To learn more about Verve’s COVID-19 safety protocols, please contact a Verve residence near you.
