COVID-19 Update
Dear Families and Friends of Tabor Village:

It's hard to believe that summer is almost over. Back in March when the pandemic started, I don't think any of us realized just how long this would continue. We still held on to hope that it would be only a few months and yet here we are, almost 6 months later.

Thank you for hanging in there with us through all the ups and downs, ever-changing policies, good and bad news, physical distance, and our many Dr. Bonnie Henry quotes.
Visitation Survey: Tell Us How We're Doing!
Thank you to all those who have already completed this Visitation Review survey. It is highly beneficial for us to know where everyone is at and to be aware of the feelings and experiences you are having with the process.

For those of you who have not yet completed the survey, it takes only 5 minutes of your time and would greatly help us improve our systems.

Below is a link to this 5 minute survey on visitation with room for comments throughout. We appreciate your time in helping us improve and do better.
Early Results Summary
We believe in honesty and transparency. Therefore, as we await more responses from the Visitation Review survey, we wanted to share with you the early results from the responses we've had so far.

Please click the link below to view the early results summary. We look forward to seeing the continued responses come in and will do our best to improve where able.
Seniors Advocate BC Asking for Feedback
Not only are we wanting feedback for our own Tabor protocols and systems, but so is Seniors Advocate BC. If you're interested, this is your opportunity to make your voices heard a little louder by the province.

CALVIN DYCK LIVE!
Thanks to a very generous sponsor, Envision Financial, we are able to put on another virtual event for all of you.

Sunday, September 27th at 2pm, catch Calvin Dyck LIVE for some musical fun with the VIS Concertmaster himself. We'll have a professional videographer helping with the filming and livestream. All YOU need to do is grab your favourite snack and tune into our YouTube channel.

All proceeds will go towards our COVID-19 Relief Fund to help with the astronomical costs of PPE and other much-needed supplies that have drastically increased due to the pandemic. You have been so faithful and generous in helping us fill this need and this virtual event is just one more step in getting us across the finish line of the $100,000 goal.

Will You Take Up The Challenge?
Restrictions might be loosening around the province, but for healthcare workers, not much has changed. With the Province opening up, there is higher risk of spread, which means Personal Protective Equipment is more important than ever.
 
PPE is in extremely high demand and the prices are astronomical. We have now raised $45,000 of the $100,000 goal.
 
We have roughly 260 residents Village wide, which means there are 260 families. If every family gave $220 today, we would reach the total $100,000 goal to cover these increasingly high expenses of necessary supplies.

Donations have been coming in with your $220, let's keep going strong until we reach our goal. Together, we will cross that finish line.
 
Will you take up the challenge and give $220 as a family?
