Challenge

COVID-19 Pandemic isolates residents of retirement living facilities

In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic required millions of people – particularly those at high risk living in community or retirement living facilities – to isolate. PARC Retirement Living jumped into action, hiring Britco to create a solution that would allow PARC residents to connect with their loved ones in a safe environment without risking contracting or spreading the coronavirus.

Solution

Customized Bulldog Site Offices become safe Family Meetup Centres

Within 10 days of PARC Retirement Living signing a contract with Britco, we outfitted five Bulldog Site Offices - one for each PARC facility in B.C. – with a semi-permanent central wall with tempered glass windows and HEPA filtration vents. The physical barrier allowed residents to visit with family and friends from a safe distance, while the glass window allowed them to see each other’s faces and the vents allowed them to hear each other’s voices. While these features were retrofitted into the Bulldogs to make the Family Meetup Centres possible, original features like the units’ two separate doorways made it possible for residents and visitors enter the Meetup Centres without making direct physical contact. 

The project was well-received by PARC Retirement Living staff, residents and visitors, as the safe Family Meetup Centres made isolation in an unprecedented time more bearable.
