Safety measures continue to be in place and the best infection control practices are being reinforced to ensure meticulous use of PPE including gloves, masks, eye protection and, where necessary, gowns. Physical distancing is expected with 100% compliance. Supervisors are continuously auditing staff’s performance of the infection control safety procedures. We will continue to do everything we can to protect the health and well-being of the residents and staff at Tabor Home and across our Village.
COVID-19 Vaccine Update
Families and tenants who can provide consent are being invited to sign consent forms for the COVID-19 vaccination which is expected soon. Some care homes in Abbotsford are already being vaccinated and it is anticipated that Tabor Village will be offered the vaccine in the coming days or weeks.
Staff member vaccination continues and employees are encouraged to take the vaccine although not mandatory.
Christmas at Tabor
Christmas at Tabor Village was highlighted with stockings stuffed with gifts from the generous Tabor community who sincerely embraced the Christmas spirit. Christmas turkey dinner, roast beef and figgie pudding were featured as holiday menu items and were enjoyed by tenants/residents. Window visits were increased to help reconnect family members with older persons living at Tabor Village. Video conferencing sessions also increased over the Christmas holidays.
We had a wonderful time celebrating the season and are truly grateful for every one of you who helped make Christmas special.
We continue to aim to improve the customer service experience for seniors living at Tabor Village and are open to receiving feedback on communication in a dignified and respectful way at all times. We will send another e-newsletter communication out on Thursday, December 31.
