Posted Mar 19, 2020   Updated Sep 24, 2020

We take the health and wellbeing of the people who live and work at Ayre Manor very seriously.

As you are already aware, rules for visiting families at Ayre Manor have been eased somewhat. We are so pleased for our residents to be able to see family again. Those who are cleared to enter Ayre Manor will continue to be screened before being permitted entry. We continue to monitor the situation carefully and have plans in place to respond as needed. Please familiarize yourself with the information that follows.

As of March 30th, we cancelled all our outside entertainments/visitors and we are not sending newsletters/calendars until further notice. We apologize for any inconveniences and will keep you posted when we can invite everyone back.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time. Stay safe and remember to wash your hands! Take care of yourselves and each other.

Any questions, please contact Linda Quigley, RN, Director of Care at 250.642.1750 ext. 105

Salon / Hairdresser

Social Outings & Appointments

Residential/Complex Care Residents:
No social engagements permitted outside facility. Only outings are allowed for essential medical appointments.

Assisted Living Residents:
As they reside in their own suites, Assisted Living residents can participate in social and external activities that are aligned with public health guidance. Residents should protect themselves by avoiding large gatherings and people who are ill, maintaining physical distancing and wearing a mask when in public indoor spaces such as stores.

We are creating two full time positions (housekeeper and residential care aide) from existing staff to assist in managing and monitoring visitors and supporting infection prevention and control practices.

We will inform families by phone or email of changes to visiting procedures. There will also be signage displayed to re-enforce procedure on the facility's front doors.
