The Housekeeping department provides daily services to ensure the building is clean and attractive. This is a big task considering the number of residents, families, friends, volunteers and staff who come to Sheridan Villa every day.
The Maintenance department has a comprehensive maintenance program that is aimed at providing a comfortable, secure and safe environment.
Another responsibility of maintenance staff is to inspect all personal electrical appliances, such as televisions, radios and lamps to ensure they are CSA approved and safe to use. Maintenance should be notified when any electrical appliances are brought into the Home.
We have our own laundry service on-site. General laundry service is provided free of charge. On admission, a record is made of all belongings and all clothing is labelled. Any new clothing brought in at a later date should be taken to the laundry department in the basement for labelling. Items such as bedding, linen, pillows, wash cloths and towels are provided.
All of the linen and personal clothing is sent to the laundry. The nursing staff is responsible for sorting the soiled linens and residents’ personal clothing by using a colour coded bag system. The laundry staff is responsible for sorting the linen and for delivering clean linen to the floors. We are not able to provide dry cleaning service.
Family members may wish to wash the residents’ personal clothing at home. In this case, we ask that you advise the Registered Nurse or Director of Care on the floor so that staff can be informed not to remove the soiled clothing.
