“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

A year has passed, and sadly COVID has not. It is surreal to remember the early days of this pandemic. There was fear caused by uncertainty, a need for rapid action to protect our loved ones, an awkwardness when withholding hugs from parents, kids, and grandkids, and encouraging optimism as whole communities pulled together to help those in need.

Everything has changed, and yet nothing has changed. Our communities of residents, families, and team members continue to pull together with a common goal of helping our residents live a life that is safe, secure, and filled with Verve. We are grateful to those who show up to work every day and make this commitment a reality. Our safety protocols and practices have been refined, and we have added levels of flexibility to meet the ever-changing government guidelines.

Vaccine availability has made a dramatic difference in our ability to navigate through this third wave, and we are pleased by the high proportion of our residents and team members who have been vaccinated. However, we are not letting our guard down. We continue to closely monitor the health of our residents and team members through twice daily checks and weekly testing, where available. We strongly encourage everyone to get vaccinated as soon as they are eligible.

The long-lasting resiliency shown by our residents, team members, and families is truly inspiring. While many of us will spend another Mother’s Day apart this year, we all look forward to special occasions in the not-too-distant future where we can embrace and enjoy the company of our loved ones.
