It seems that really are into the second wave with increasing cases in the community and in long-term care (LTC)/retirement homes. We give thanks that both Nisbet and McClintock are currently COVID-free. Our in-house IPAC (infection control) Champions continue to test residents and staff regularly. Screeners actively screen all visitors and families are being compliant about not visiting.
While shutting things down is good from an infection control point of view it is hard psychologically for residents and really all of us. Residents are going up to the lovely 12th-floor dining room twice a week and small group programs have started up. Residents are really enjoying seeing each other again.
Thanks to the provincial government we are well stocked with PPE should there be another outbreak. We should have more details in December about additional staffing in LTC.
We hope that the announcement by Pfizer about the development of a safe and effective vaccine will soon get us to a new normal. From what I have read seniors will be one of the priority groups to get the new vaccine.
We ask for your continued prayers for the physical and mental health of residents, staff and families.

Everyone here is devoted to ensuring high-quality professional and compassionate care for every resident of Nisbet Lodge. We also work so that tenants of McClintock Manor enjoy life to the fullest.
To accomplish that, I am privileged to lead a committed and skilled staff. We are fortunate to have dedicated volunteers and Board members, and a very significant roster of community partners.
Nisbet Lodge is a charitable, not-for-profit organization, a home that cares for just over 100 seniors. We offer residents accommodation and care that fulfills the needs of today’s seniors, in a Christian environment.
McClintock Manor is an apartment building for seniors who can live on their own. We provide 62 apartments where seniors can live independently in a “good-neighbour community.
The Nisbet Lodge McClintock Manor Foundation exists to support the present and future work of both the Lodge and the Manor. Started in 1993, the Foundation raises funds for capital projects that benefit both the Lodge and Manor.
Your gifts are crucial, as we always must find additional funds to cover many important needs of our residents and tenants. We value every gift and every donor either it is a donation or volunteering.
