As our members know, we serve the residents at the Edmonton General Continuing Care Centre. Each resident there has a membership to the Edmonton Seniors Centre. They are people we love and care deeply about. It is with great sadness as our hearts go to the the family and friends of the residents there. The following was released by the EGCCC:
Edmonton General Continuing Care CentreThere are 62 active cases of COVID-19 among residents and patients – no increase since our last update. There are a total of 66 active cases among staff – no increase since our last update, total 128.
There have been 30 deaths connected to this outbreak. We share our deepest condolences with the families and friends of those who have passed and offer prayers of peace and comfort at this difficult time.
Out of an abundance of caution, the site is closed to admissions and transfers. We have also extended visitation restrictions to the whole site at this time. This also includes designated family supports, except for end-of-life situations. We encourage families to continue to meet virtually with their loved ones.
Our residents’ families are part of the community at the Edmonton General. From the beginning of the pandemic, we have been in frequent, regular contact via virtual Town Hall meetings and other correspondence.
At this time, we continue to provide those vital opportunities to connect and update our community; especially important when in-person visitation is restricted.
The safety of our residents, patients, staff, physicians and visitors remains our number one priority. Our teams continue to work tirelessly and collaboratively, taking every possible step to respond with compassion to this challenging situation and to ensure a safe environment for care.
