We are in a new age of senior living.
Revera united with public health experts, healthcare partners, and our peers to face a great unknown together. Our frontline staff worked tirelessly. We felt immense gratitude for the swells of support from our local communities. We stood shoulder to shoulder with others in the sector, sharing knowledge, knowing we were all in this together.
The COVID-19 pandemic in Canada broke our hearts. But it will never break our will. Every day, guided by values of respect, integrity, compassion and excellence, we are fostering a safe and healthy environment so we can protect and care for those we love.
We are adapting. We are evolving. We are unwavering.
We are Revera.
“I firmly believe that the senior living sector needs to address existing, longstanding challenges and emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic stronger. At Revera, we are committed to being part of the solution and are investing in research, planning and best-practice designs that can drive lasting change in the industry. And we are ready to work with all operators, governments, experts and stakeholders to protect residents and prepare staff across the industry.”
~ Tom Wellner, President and CEO, Revera Inc.
Revera’s Pandemic Response Plan
Drawing on insights from the pandemic’s first wave and feedback from our residents and their families, the advisory committee will identify practical and actionable opportunities for improvement. Made up of leaders in medicine, health policy, aging and geriatrics, and healthcare infrastructure, our committee members will focus on developing executable best practices in six key areas:
- Infection prevention and control
- Screening, testing, and tracing
- Building design standards and physical facility improvements
- Recruitment, retention, and labour strategies
- Research opportunities for treatments and vaccines
- Rethinking the range of senior living options
Stay safe. Stay strong.
Wash your hands.
“Our fight against COVID-19 is not a sprint, it’s a marathon. The most important thing is that we keep our residents and employees safe, comfortable and cared for. We need to continue to cooperate and work together to achieve this.”
~ Dr. Rhonda Collins, Chief Medical Officer
