If a resident leaves the service for any reason, they / their representative will be asked to complete a Social Leave Declaration Form so that staff can assess the level of risk the outing may create.
To protect other residents and staff at the village, if the leave is requested for any activity other than a medical appointment, the resident will be required to isolate in their room for 14 days after returning to the village.
We continue to place the following activities on hold:
Many wonderful lifestyle programs and activities are in place to ensure residents remain engaged.
