Why our residents love Cottonwood.

April 1st Covid19 Update

Covid19 Update April 1st

During this time of physical distancing, when many extra precautions are necessary to protect our residents and those who care for them, we are also reminded how important it is to remain connected.

Last weekend at Cottonwood VIllage in Claresholm, Alberta, our community had the great honour for our resident, Ken, to connect with his granddaughter on her wedding day. He is one proud Grandfather.

All Optima Living Communities are following procedures as directed by the Public Health Officers in Alberta & BC, limiting access to essential personnel only and increasing infection control measures.

In these online community talks, participates will receive helpful information and resources that can best support Seniors in living vibrantly under any cicrumstances, including what we are dealing with right now in response to COVID-19.
