The team at Queens Avenue have adapted to the new normal ensuring that everyone is still enjoying vibrant, healthy and fulfilling lives. We are still providing the balanced lifestyle programs and services we have always been dedicated to while adhering to the new guidelines to keep us all healthy. At times like this we recognize that keeping connected is more important then ever and we are using technology such as Skype to connect residents to their family members locally and abroad. We still have lots of music, to promote a positive and relaxed atmosphere, now it’s just pre-recorded music broadcast throughout the common rooms. Residents can choose to have their meals in their rooms or socialize with their Queens family in the dining room keeping a distance of six feet apart. We have implemented enhanced cleaning measures and have everything we need to continue operating at the high standard that Queens has come to be known for. What keeps us going during these challenging times is the gratitude and generosity we have received. Thank you to Dillon’s Distillers of Beamsville, Ontario who now manufactures hand sanitizer for donating cases of complimentary product.
Thank you to the family members that have sponsored staff lunches and our heart felt gratitude for the simple “thank you” notes. Gifts of flowers will fade over time, but the words will always speak loud. At Queens we will continue to adapt the to the new normal as things evolve. It can be a trying time, but let us assure you, we are doing just fine.
