Dear families of Shelburne Long-Term Care,

We are excited to share with our families a number of activities we are planning for our residents in the coming days and weeks.

Sunday June 21st is Father’s Day, we plan to celebrate the fathers and grandfathers by holding a barbecue for our residents on Friday June 19th. Since COVID-19 impacted our Mother’s Day celebrations this event will also celebrate mothers and grandmothers living in our home.

In line with our focus of encouraging active lifestyles, supporting mental and emotional wellbeing in our residents, we are undertaking a gardening project. This initiative will beautify the courtyard space and help our active seniors enjoy more time outdoors. Our residents will be included in the activity, and we will be sure to share photos and highlights with our families in future updates and on social media.

As we continue to implement activities that encourage active lifestyles and support mental and emotional well-being in our residents, we want to remind everyone that we are continuing with our precautions to protect the health and safety of our residents and staff. We will continue to follow the directives and guidance from the Ontario government and medical authorities at all times.

We would like to continue to encourage our family partners to reach out to us at 519-925-3746 if you ever have any questions about the health of your loved one, or our outbreak management protocols.
