Tabor Court Update
We are pleased to report that after testing both tenants and staff at Tabor Court, there have been no new cases of COVID-19. The one staff member who had previously tested positive is self-isolating at home on their way to recovery. Keep praying for Tabor Court tenants, staff, and families for their protection, safety, and health.
COVID-19 Vaccine Update
Initial immunizations in the Fraser Health region will focus on healthcare staff who work in long-term care facilities. We are pleased to report that vaccinations for Tabor Home staff members are well underway with more to come in the coming weeks.
We are strongly urging staff to get vaccinated with the hope and goal of having all staff, all residents and all families eventually vaccinated. This vaccine is our best defense against the virus and against any future outbreaks.
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.

Celebrating 100% Negative Test Results!!
We are pleased to announce that last week's COVID-19 testing had 100% negative test results! That means there are no new cases of COVID-19 in Tabor Home and we are on our way to de-escalation. Thank you for your prayers, encouragement, and support during this difficult time. We are so very thankful and can see the light at the end of this tunnel. We have another round of testing today for all staff and residents of Tabor Home just to be safe and sure. If this round also comes back with 100% negative test results, then we will soon be declared outbreak free.
Due to this fantastic news of de-escalation and negative test results, we will not be sending daily email updates moving forward, unless the need arises. We will go back to the once a week e-newsletter as before the outbreak. However, that does not mean we are any less available to you. Please do not hesitate to reach out at any time with any questions or concerns you may have. We are here for you always.
We have been feverishly prepping all the stockings for residents this week and have already begun delivering. We cannot wait to share some photos with you. We are also serving a Christmas lunch for each residence.
We want to say a very special thank you to London Drugs for the abundance of gifts they gave to the residents/tenants. Between London Drugs generosity plus our Stockings 4 Seniors campaign, every resident/tenant of Tabor Village will be showered with abundant joy, love, and care this Christmas. A bright light at the end of a very difficult year. Thank you London Drugs, thank you to all of you and our greater community for donating, dropping off cards, and joining us in our endeavor to make Christmas EXTRA special this year for residents.
Catch a glimpse below of just some of the gifts from London Drugs and our Stockings 4 Seniors preparation.
