Letter from Dania Executive Director Lui Franciosi — June 2023
June 9, 2023
Dear Residents and Families of Dania,
I want to provide you with updates on our COVID-19 status as well as summer preparations and highlights at Dania this past month.
We are pleased to report that there has been no new COVID-19 cases at Dania Home and Dania Manor. With COVID vaccine boosters likely now working in residents who opted for the additional safeguard, we continue to do our best in keeping our community safe and protected from COVID-19. If we have any further updates, we will immediately share them with you on our website: https://www.dania.bc.ca/covid-19-status-updates/
As you may know already, we are expecting a hot and dry summer along with wildfires in various parts of British Columbia. Since last month, we have been preparing and implementing our heat response safety plans on the Dania Campus. Fraser Health Licensing recently inspected these heat plans and they determined that we met all of the expected regulations and standards of practice. Licensing also came earlier in May to conduct their annual facility risk assessment of Dania Home. They inspected our physical building; staffing; polices & procedures; care and supervision; hygiene and communicable disease control; nutrition and food services; recreation programming; and records and reporting. I am delighted to inform you that Fraser Health gave Dania Home a ‘Low Risk’ rating, which demonstrates again the excellent care and support that our Leadership Team and staff members continue to provide our residents daily. A special thanks to them for their efforts in maintaining these high standards.
Lastly, I would like to invite you to attend our next family council meeting on Monday, June 19, 2023, at 6:30pm at Dania Home, or virtually for those unable to attend in person. Refreshments will be available to all of you that evening. Please find enclosed the Zoom meeting details below:
