Dear Tabor Home Family and Friends:
Tabor Home Outbreak Update
Our hearts go out to all those who have lost loved ones during this season. Our hearts are breaking alongside all of these grieving families. When residents move into a Tabor Village residence, they become like family. To lose one family member is heartbreaking, but to lose over twenty is a devastating tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers are with our entire Tabor family during this time.

We are excited to let you know that COVID-19 vaccines have now arrived in B.C. Tabor Home is eligible to receive the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine starting today.
Initial immunizations in the Fraser Health region will focus on healthcare staff who work in long-term care facilities. We have some staff already signed up to receive the vaccine today and will have more in the coming weeks as more vaccine doses become available.
Due to the dust they collect and the extra touchpoint risks they pose to residents, we cannot have decorations in resident rooms unfortunately. Our recreation team has been hard at work decorating our therapeutic gardens and the Cherry Lane courtyard with lights and decorations for the residents to enjoy! We would love for you to help and add your own personal touches for the outdoors!
We ask that there are no food decorations (no popcorn or berry strings, please!) to avoid attracting wildlife and that all decorations are being hung so that they’ll hold up to a bit of wind and weather as much as possible. Please note that decorations that are hung in the front of the building and not in a courtyard may be susceptible to vandals so please do not bring anything valuable or precious to your family as we cannot guarantee their safety. Please also note that there are no outlets along the outside front of the building so lights will not be possible in that area.
Please note that windows must remain closed while decorating and if you would like to decorate a window that is not accessible from the front of the building, please coordinate your time with our Visitation Supervisor, Jackie, at email@example.com
We know that the lack of Christmas decor in resident rooms is hard, especially with the arrival of Christmas, but this is a Fraser Health directive and we must abide by it and do our part in order to get back to being outbreak free. That said, we kindly ask you to stop bringing in Christmas decorations for the inside of resident rooms. As mentioned above, outdoor decorations are permitted, just no indoor decor.
All further questions can be directed to Jackie Kingma, email above or call 604-859-8715 x 621.
