For those who would like to drop off gifts for residents for Christmas, please have gifts in wipeable packaging to be sanitized prior to delivery to the resident. Please also label the gift clearly with the resident’s full name to ensure it is delivered appropriately. We look forward to the joy these gifts will bring to the residents and are working with the support aides from the Red Cross to ensure items are delivered in a timely manner.
Together with the Red Cross, we will be booking virtual visits over the Christmas period to connect residents with Loved ones as much as possible. To book a virtual visit, please contact Sandra Katchnoski – Recreation Coordinator at SKatchnoski@holyfamilyhome.mb.ca.
We are working with Shared Health and the construction company to open the visitation rooms early in the New Year with hopes of having visitation available for Ukrainian Christmas. We are grateful for the many messages of kindness and support we have received from many of you. It is so very appreciated.
We will continue to provide updates throughout the holiday season and we will contact you directly should there be any issue with your loved one.
We wish all of you a blessed Christmas and all the best for a happy and healthy New Year.
Please keep Holy Family Home in your thoughts and your prayers.
