December 2013

By - December 10th 2013.


At SVNC, we recognize the importance of being surrounded by family during the holiday season. For this reason we want to offer the opportunity for families to come together with their loved ones for a delicious festive meal. Two separate dates have been set aside for family bookings. The kitchen will prepare the festive meal and families will be seated in the Maple Room with their loved ones. The cost is $5 per guest, payable at the front office. To allow all residents the opportunity to dine with loved ones we kindly ask that you book only two guests per resident. Should you be interested in joining us for one of these meals, we ask that you book a seat with your loved one for one of the dates listed below. You can make your bookings with Shelley at 519-323-2140 Ext. 25.


1. Friday, December 13th from 12-1PM Menu – Roast Turkey meal with the trimmings (Please make your reservation by Nov. 30th)
2. Thursday, December 19th from 12-1PM Menu – Ham & Scalloped Potatoes (Please make your reservation by Dec. 4th)

Should you wish to dine with your loved one on another date we kindly ask that you book your reservation at least two days in advance with the Food Service Manager at extension #24. Please be mindful that due to the increased volume of visitors during the holiday season we ask that you consider limiting dinner guests to a maximum of 2 guests per resident to allow all residents the opportunity to dine with their loved ones. Additionally, those wishing to book a common room for a get together are asked to do so between meal times. Please call ext. 24 to make your reservation.


    • GIFT IDEAS – We have some ideas for those of you struggling to find that perfect gift. 1) Make a scrapbook of special pictures and memories, 2) Digital Photo Frame, 3) Puzzles, 4) Crossword books, 5) Knitting materials, or 6) some cozy clothing.
      If your gift requires a label please make every effort to bring it in to the Home in advance for labeling. With all the gifts distributed on Christmas Day this will help to ensure that your loved one receives the gift that you have spent time selecting for them. Please bring your gift in to the front office or nurses’ station in a plastic bag with your loved ones name clearly written on the bag prior to Dec. 19th. Please indicate on a letter attached to the bag if you wish to pick-up the gift after it is labeled or if you wish our SVNC Santa to deliver it on your behalf on Christmas day. If you wish for us to deliver, please send a gift bag & tissue paper.
      We would be happy to deliver your Christmas gifts to your loved one on Christmas Day. If you wish this service from our special Mr. & Mrs. Claus please have your gift(s) labeled, and delivered in a gift bag with your loved ones name clearly noted on the bag to the front office or Shelley by Dec. 19th
