The team at Greenwoods Long-Term Care and Braehaven Assisted Living is very pleased to welcome back visitors to the residences.
As of 19 July, visits no longer need to be scheduled but social visits must occur during the regular visiting hours.
The above visiting times are for social visits only. Essential visits will still be possible at all times as per the current protocols.
All visitors to Greenwoods and Braehaven must be screened and signed in upon arrival. Please wait in reception for a Resident Ambassador or Receptionist to greet you. The screening protocol includes some questions regarding COVID 19, checking temperatures, and a discussion of vaccination status.
All visitors must wear a mask while moving through the common areas.
Visitors who are fully vaccinated (i.e. two weeks post their second dose) may take their mask off once in direct contact with the resident they are visiting. Smiles can be full on and not just through the eyes!
Non-fully vaccinated visitors, or those unable to provide vaccination status, are required to wear a mask throughout their visit, both indoors and outdoors.
As always, the wellbeing and safety of our Residents and team members remain paramount. Please be mindful of the Resident’s comfort level in receiving more visitors or frequent visits. After 18 months of very structured visits, it may take a bit of time for some Residents to adjust to the changes and feel comfortable with the increase in activity.
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."
