Hello to you all,
The staff who have been isolating continue to test negative which is very good news indeed. If they still test negative on Thursday they can return to work from Sunday 19th December. Consequently, the decision has been made to postpone the Resident Christmas Party to Thursday 23rd December. This will enable the full kitchen team to be on deck and ready to create a wonderful Christmas lunch for everyone. Thank you for your understanding.
NSW Health has sent out an advice for arrangements over the Christmas period. Unfortunately, they have not relaxed any of the current restrictions so visiting numbers remain the same. Masks are also still a requirement for staff and visitors within the Village. The restrictions also mean that, sadly, we will be unable to accommodate visitors at the Resident Christmas Party. We do apologise that you won’t be able to attend.
In relation to resident outings over Christmas, the same framework will apply. We would ask all families who are considering taking residents to family functions, that they ensure COVID safe practices are in place – ie. Social distancing, no unvaccinated people etc. We would also strongly suggest that all family members at a function obtain a test prior to the function. Testing will be undertaken for any resident returning from a family gathering.
Lastly, thank you everyone for your patience and understanding over what has been a very challenging year. As the Acting General Manager, I have been heartened to receive many messages of support and encouragement.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas from the Board, Management and Staff of Abel Tasman Village.
Acting General MAnager
Yes, the festive season is here! Tomorrow, 2nd December we’re starting festivities with our traditional Sinterklaas party. Unfortunately without kids this year, but we’ll have a great time anyway!
Of course we’ll have Christmas and New Year to finish off the year. Read all about it in our December newsletter.
We’re all looking forward to meeting old and new friends, as the end of the Sydney lock-down is in sight. To celebrate we’re having a Barbie, as you can see in this month’s ATV newsletter!
In other news, the Rembrandt Club is also keen to resume its activities, as you can read in its September newsletter.
We’re currently finalising the details for visiting the Village and will update you as soon as the NSW government and practicalities allow…
It’s Spring and Father’s Day – two good reasons to lift our spirits. As you can see in the newsletter (download it here), we’re keeping busy… The calendar of activities is remarkably full despite the COVID challenge.
Sydney’s disruptive lock-down? Our residents are leading a pretty close to normal life. They follow the Olympic games and make up their own non-olympic games. Lots of excellent photos in our facebook feed and in the monthly newsletter, which you can download now.
And a quick reminder about Employee Day this week. Send a message to our staff. Encouragement goes a long way during this strange and unpredictable time.
