We further regret to advise the provincial regulations includes all social contacts are to be reduced to your household only. Social gatherings are not permitted. As a result, no social visiting will be permitted in Bethel’s common space and or lobbies. However, please be mindful Bethel Place is permitting essential visitation. Essential visits are necessary visits directly related to resident care needs. Essential visitors include a person performing essential support services e.g. food delivery, inspector, maintenance, or health care services.
SOI take-out delivery services, laboratory, banking, foot care and massage services will continue as essential services to Bethel Place within provincial protocols.
In conclusion, to help us during this transition Christine Wiebe, Resident Care Coordinator and Colleen Bergan, Program Coordinator will be contacting residents by telephone to help us stay connected as a community. Residents are also encouraged to regularly reach out by phone to family, friends or staff as a way of making connections.
These measures are all being taken to strive keep each other safe. As a community we need to help flatten the curve once again. Together as a Bethel community we can do this.
