Letter from Dania Executive Director Lui Franciosi — January 2024

January 10, 2024

Dear Residents and Families of Dania,

Happy New Year to all of you.  I want to provide you with an update on our COVID-19 status and brief you on other events happening at Dania.

At Dania Manor, we have had no residents or staff with COVID-19 over the last month.  However, this week Dania Home has seen five residents and two staff members test positive.  Three neighborhoods are now on enhanced monitoring with staff continuing to follow the necessary Fraser Health protocols to monitor and contain these cases.  As of today, Fraser Health has declared an outbreak of Influenza A in one Dania Home neighborhood.  Residents and families in this part of the building have been notified.  Only designated visitors / family members will be allowed to come over the next 10 days, but this timeframe may be extended if there is an emergence of new cases. More visitors may be allowed depending on resident’s health situation.  We ask that visitors of the affected neighborhood also call before coming and that they check regularly our COVID and influenza status on our website at:  https://www.dania.bc.ca/covid-19-status-updates  We do appreciate your understanding and patience at this time.

Lastly, Family Council Chair Craig McCulloch and I would like to invite all current and new family members to attend these meetings, held every third Monday of each month, where we discuss important topics that concern BC’s healthcare system and the impact it has on our residents, families and staff.  I would like to thank all those family members that normally come and invite them back.  Our next meeting is Monday, January 15, 2024 at 6:30pm.  For those that are unable to attend in-person, we also have a virtual method available.  Here are the ZOOM meeting details used for every meeting:
