What residents and their loved ones say about The Heritage - Verve Senior Living in reviews.
At Verve Senior Living, our focus is to provide services and supports that enable seniors to optimize their health, well-being, and independence. During the pandemic we looked to our experienced internal Leadership teams and Health and Wellness Leaders who work closely with our provincial health authorities to provide the best possible roadmap for navigating a worldwide pandemic. Our Infection, Prevention and Control policies and plans, which included visitor screening, masking, social distancing, hand hygiene and thorough enhanced disinfection of our sites allowed us to combat Covid. These plans aligned to provide the utmost in safety and security for our Residents physically, and continues to be an important security measure for attaining their optimal mental health in knowing their safety is at the forefront of all we do.
Our Residents remained in their suites for short periods of time — this was key in keeping the virus out of our Retirement Residences. Health care support continued to be provided on a one-on-one basis and our Life Enrichment team members worked to engage residents in a way that kept them active and socially engaged. All meals, snacks, treats, entertainment, and even happy hour beverages were brought to their suites, which were widely welcomed and appreciated by everyone! By following the safety guidelines and visits with loved ones, walks in the hallways or outside proved beneficial in enhancing both physical and mental exercise.
Mandatory Covid-19 vaccination for all residents and team members in our homes has been instrumental in decreasing the severity of outbreaks. Continuing to keep everyone safe is first and foremost in all that we do at Verve! To find out more on how Residents at Verve felt about living through these times, view it in their words below.
