FAMILY UPDATE FROM VENTA CARE CENTRE
To our Families and Visitors
As you may be aware the COVID cases are raising by the thousands on a daily basis. As of today, there are more than 13 nursing homes that are on outbreak.
At this time Venta Care Centre remains COVID free with no positive staff or Residents.
Venta Care Centre attributes this to our diligent protocols and collaboration with you and our staff. For instance, prior to contact with your loved one all staff are rapid tested. In addition, all staff and visitors help to follow guidelines of hand hygiene and continuous masking and shields. Thank you!
In discussion with the care team and Residents we have decided to implement additional safety measures to help prevent COVID from entering the nursing home.
We understand the importance of continual visitation and will not restrict visitation at this time. However, we encourage virtual visitation offered by our Recreation team.
