Today we were excited to receive our posting, at Trilogy Long Term Care on Eglinton Ave. near McCowan. There are six floors with residents and Rusty will be assigned to three floors.
Ok, before all that happens, we are still waiting for the release which takes up to three months. The home will call me to come in to meet and they might request a TB test. All this can be accomplished prior to the release.
There is a uniform which consists of a T-shirt with the TPOC logo that must be worn at all times while visiting. If there happened to be an insurance claim and we weren't wearing the uniform it would make the insurance void. Rusty will wear a kerchief and/or a tag as identification.
There will be a supervisor who will take me on a visit with her dog while Rusty stays at home. On the next visit Rusty will attend and then there may be a third visit just to make sure everything is going well.
So, that is where we are at now and Rusty is patiently waiting for his appointment and looking forward to meeting all his new friends.
