Promoting a Positive Outlook
The challenges surrounding the pandemic are continuing longer than any of us had expected, or certainly hoped. White Rapids Manor has, of course, taken additional precautions in line with all Public Health directives. While initially that meant no visitors for residents, we have been able to expand visiting protocols. We have scheduled visits in the lower lounge and we also have Designated Support People for residents. This helps residents feel less isolated during this lengthy pandemic.
We have resumed taking residents out for drives on our mini-bus. They enjoyed the fall colours and crisp, fresh air. We hope to continue this as the Christmas season approaches and outdoor lights start appearing.
We come to work each day for the residents and do our best to encourage them. While they can’t see our smiles behind the masks, we know they can feel our positive energy.
