“My family and I feel deeply blessed to have been able to relocate my father to Verve Senior Living. Throughout the process the management team went far above and beyond at every turn to help us. This was especially appreciated given Covid 19. They were patient, kind and empathetic, offering guidance and help the likes of which we had never experienced elsewhere. ”

Safe and Secure

Our COVID-19 Safety Protocols

At all times we must follow the guidelines set forth by the local provincial health authority. In many cases we implement safety initiatives before the governments mandates them. While we pride ourselves on doing everything we can to keep our communities safe, it does alter the way we connect with the outside community.  Despite COVID’s interruption to our regularly scheduled lives, Verve continues to be a vibrant, fun, engaging, and safe place to live thanks to our incredibly creative and caring team members who go the extra mile in all that they do.  To learn more about Verve’s COVID-19 safety protocols, please contact a Verve community near you.

Message from our CEO and President

I often think about the people who work in senior care and why they chose this work. It can be challenging, particularly when dealing with a global pandemic. Therefore, I believe it comes down to the genuine desire to positively impact the life of a senior and the personal fulfillment that brings. I know it’s what attracted me to the industry, and I feel our team at Verve embodies that spirit.

As the Omicron variant spreads, we are integrating all the lessons the pandemic has taught us over the past two years to face this next challenge—the most significant of which remains maintaining our staffing levels while keeping our residents and team members healthy and safe.

Thankfully, we have a very high percentage of residents who have already received their third vaccination. In the rare case when a resident tests positive, the symptoms have been usually limited to mild symptoms. We continue to work with the local health authorities to get our double-vaccinated team members their booster as quickly as possible and respond to any community outbreaks while maintaining the quality of our residents’ experience as much as possible.

I have the utmost confidence in and respect for our team members who’ve committed to caring for our seniors and inspiring them to be their best selves. We continue to be thankful for our entire community, from the residents, their family, and our team members, for their unfailing patience, support and commitment to each other.

Our Verve community is here for you and continually strives to protect the health of our residents and team members. Together, we will take 2022 as it comes and prevail.
