A message from our CEO and President regarding Covid-19

2020 was a long year full of challenges and dark days. I am pleased to say that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Soon we will reach a stable new “normal” with the reintroduction of social interactions and a welcomed sense of relief.

Seventy percent of Verve residents nation-wide have had the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, as have a high percentage of our front-line team members. We are working closely with the provincial health authorities to ensure our remaining residents receive vaccines in the coming weeks.

We appreciate our caring, resourceful, and resilient team members for all their hard work, tireless service, and support of our residents. Our residents and family members are an amazing group of patient and understanding people who have shown great flexibility and resiliency in these unusual and unprecedented times.

For almost a year now, we as a community (residents, families, team members, and management), have been pulling together to ensure that the health and well-being of our residents is forefront in everything we undertake.

Thank you all. We are almost there; we can see the light and the not-so-distant end of the tunnel.
