To support the Provincial Health Officer’s directions around social distancing and to protect our Residents and our team from the transmission of COVID-19, we are following Island Health’s advice to further restrict visitors to both Braehaven and Greenwoods.
Essential visits include, visits for compassionate care and visits considered paramount to resident care and well-being. Visits must now be pre-arranged to determine if they are essential or if alternative arrangements can be made.
To discuss visits with Greenwoods Residents, please contact Barb Williams, Director of Care at 250 537 5561 ext. 234.
To discuss visits with Braehaven Residents, please contact Community Health Services - Home Support at 1 250 544 2500.
This is a difficult step as we understand the importance of visits from family and loved ones but it is an essential action to safe-guard the Residents and team.
To maintain connections, we are bringing in iPads to facilitate FaceTime and Skype calls. There’s also a form now on our website where you can send in a private message. The messages will be printed and delivered to the Resident by one of our team.
Parking on the Greenwoods and Braehaven lots is free - but quite limited. If you are unable to find a space in either lot please park at the Legion across the road from the Greenwoods Complex Care facility. Greenwoods maintains an agreement with the Legion to provide free parking for all Greenwoods Eldercare Society visitors.
"Named by officers of the Hudson's Bay Company for the cold and briny salt water springs on the north end of the island, Saltspring Island is the largest, most populated, and most visited of the Southern Gulf Islands. The setting is West Coast Canadian; forested islands, wide meadows and beautiful landscapes surrounded by emerald ocean and wonderful vistas."
