COVID-19 has impacted us all and we have taken steps to make sure our communities stay healthy and safe. However, while staying well and protecting seniors remains our top priority, this has made connections between family members a little challenging. We recognize these relationships are vital to residents and loved ones.

We will continue to share stories of perseverance, courage and honour the human spirit as we work through this together.

This Great Connection focuses on our location in Truro and team members who are making sure these touch points still happen.

Love Will Find a Way

At Fergus Hall, located on Parkland Truro campus, team members hatched a plan to make sure residents can still visit with their loved ones. Recently, the team began noticing family members were standing outside their loved one’s window in an effort to stay connected. As we all know, March in Atlantic Canada isn’t the warmest, so to keep everyone out of the cold the team decided to set up an “office” as a visiting space inside their front vestibule so residents and family members could stay connected, see each other and stay warm!

Thank you to our team members who are going above and beyond to find unique and creative ways to keep our residents and families connected during this challenging time. Your efforts are greatly appreciated by many!
