Saugeen Valley Nursing Center has been purchased by Sharon Farms and Enterprises, owned and operated by Peter Schlegel. Recently this has resulted in consolidation of our billing and bank accounts. You may have noticed that your pre-authorized payment will show Sharon Farms and Enterprises on your bank statement.
NEW O2 PROVIDER
Beginning the end of June, we have contracted with Motion Specialties as our new oxygen supplier. This decision was based on the type of equipment they provide, and also some enhanced services that will benefit our staff and residents. Instead of portable oxygen canisters residents will be provided with battery operated portable concentrators. This eliminates the need to refill the canisters, and is much safer as we do not need to store liquid oxygen in the building.
LOST & FOUND
Our lost and found items are accumulating. If you are missing items please pop in and ask to be directed to our lost and found. As well, please remember to bring new clothing items to the front desk during the weekdays or to the nurse’s station during the evenings and weekends so that the clothing can be labeled.
TRIPS & SUMMER FUN
Throughout the summer months we will be going on short excursions with small groups of residents and larger group outings by bus. We invite family to partake in these outings as it allows for more residents to enjoy them. Please contact Shelley at 519-323-2140 at ext. #25 if you are able join us. Additionally, many families have taken advantage of setting up a small trust account at SVNC for residents to access funds for the Tuck Shop or for small trip expenses. Many residents enjoy the independence of purchasing a treat from the Tuck Shop cart and/or buying a sweet treat at a Tim Horton’s outing. Please see Lynn at the front desk should you be interested in setting up such an account and she would be happy to assist you.
Just a friendly reminder that it is a good time of the year to organize your loved ones closets/dressers/night stands of unwanted or ill-fitting items, and look at changing their clothing over for the summer season.
