Dear Optima Residents, Employees, and Stakeholders,
We hope you are enjoying a healthy start to this new year!
We are happy to report COVID-19 positive numbers are declining. We must continue to maintain precautions, adhering to physical distancing, hand hygiene, and wearing masks.
COVID-19 vaccines have been offered to all of our Supportive Living communities in Alberta. We are grateful that residents in our independent living communities have also been offered vaccines. In addition, all of our Assisted Living and Long-Term Care communities in British Columbia have been offered the vaccine.

Stay Safe. Be Well. Take Care.
