A Message from our Executive Director, Ellen Tarshis
We are sending you this update as the holidays approach and we are all trying to adjust to our new reality. In keeping with the provincial health directives, which have now been extended until January 8th, 2021, we are having to re-examine the family visits for individuals living in our community homes. We also know that many families and individuals are wondering what this means for them for the holidays.
It is a very difficult decision to have to make, however, effective immediately, all non-distanced visits or visits in family homes must be cancelled. There may be an exception made in situations where the visit is deemed essential, but please note that visits that were previously deemed essential may not be now with these new orders. Distanced visits can continue and are encouraged. You can book and use the main office lunchroom or the Comerford building on weekends and/or evenings. This can be done through your family member’s supervisor or manager.
We know that some families and individuals will find this news very difficult. It will be difficult for all of us over the holidays, but we must find other ways to connect to keep everyone safe and help flatten the curve.
We want to reassure you that we have implemented all Public Health Office orders, Worksafe and licensing requirements and numerous protocols. We have implemented mandatory masks in our homes and all programs and have provided training for our staff in proper use of PPE. We are feeling confident that we have done everything we can to keep your family member and our staff healthy and safe.
We want to acknowledge our staff, individuals, families, home sharing providers, contractors, and community partners who continue to do their part in keeping people safe and maintaining essential services. We are proud to be a part of such a great community!
We wish you and your family a safe, and healthy holiday and may 2021 bring all that we are all hoping for.
We will continue to provide updates as the situation changes. As always, feel free to email me firstname.lastname@example.org or 250.477.7231, 226 with any questions or concerns.

2019 Satisfaction Survey Results
Each year, as part of our accreditation process, we ask the people who use our services whether they think we are doing a good job. Here are the results from asking questions in our Satisfaction Surveys in February 2020.
Community Living Victoria is looking forward and preparing for our 6th CARF Accreditation survey in fall 2020 (delayed from Spring 2020 due to CoVid). This year our Survey will look a lot different due to CoVid-19 Health and Safety precautions. It will be digitally enabled (DESS) and will have our surveyors joining us over a variety of online options. Stay tuned for updates and ways that you can participate in the process!
