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

It's Time
#SleeveUp To #FightFlu
The goal is simple: 100% of Tabor Village vaccinated.

We are well underway with flu vaccines Tabor Village wide and are looking forward to seeing a 100% compliance rate Village wide for all staff and residents. It is imperative that we all do our part to protect against the flu.

As staff, we have seen firsthand the detrimental effect the flu can have in our residences and on the many loved ones we care for. There is a substantial risk that Tabor Village carries if the flu were to make its way into our homes. Add this risk to the pandemic we continue to fight against and the risk of infection is greater and more intense than ever before.

The flu vaccine being provided for residents in BC Long-Term care homes is called Fluzone. It is an extra boost of immunization that is deemed more effective than the regular Influenza vaccination. Older persons as a population are more vulnerable to respiratory viruses such as Influenza. This vaccination is our best way to prevent contracting Influenza.

We have worked incredibly hard to ensure Tabor Village remains a COVID-FREE and infection-FREE zone and we refuse to give up now, but we need your help.

It is expected that all Essential and Social Visitors will have received their flu shots before entering any Tabor Village site. Help us keep your loved ones safe. 

Mask up. Lather up. Roll that sleeve up and fight flu.

It is the goal of Tabor Village Leadership and the COVID-19 Outbreak Management Committee that we have a record number of vaccinated staff this year with a goal of 100% compliance, which includes all visitors.
Celebrating Thanksgiving
Happy Retirement Dr. DeLeeuw!
We said goodbye to a beloved and instrumental part of Team Tabor this week, Dr. DeLeeuw. He has been a warm and caring heart to have around our Village and it has been a pleasure working alongside him. We are sad to see him go, but wish him all the best in his retirement.

LAUNCHING OCTOBER 2020
Welcome to my life, the magazine about pursuing the life you love!
 
my life magazine is published by the Tabor Home Society. Over the years we've learned a few things about not letting anything, especially aging, slow us down or keep us from living a full, inspired life each and everyday. Most materials for seniors are aimed at helping with preparations for slowing down, where we think that retirement is just the beginning of a new adventure!
What Is This About You Ask?
my life is about exactly that: older adults taking charge of their own lives and living it to the fullest! We want to guide, inspire, and empower older adults to live healthy, full lives, no matter what age or stage they're at.
 
Articles include tips, advice, and professional guidance on topics such as my health, my finances, my home, my travel, my relationships, healthy recipes and more!
 
We are thrilled to be launching this exciting new venture in October of this year! Stay tuned for more info coming soon and be sure to keep an eye out for my life magazine around our city.
