Translated Summary: Phyllis Ho - Alberta Health Services is sending help to Millrise Seniors Village in Calgary to support the facility during the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a statement released on Monday. Due to challenges in staffing levels at the facility over the past few days, AHS is directly involved in supporting residents and staff of Millrise Seniors Village to manage the COVID-19 outbreak on site. AHS said it took immediate action to improve staffing, outbreak control, and infection prevention and control measures. The health authority said that over the weekend, it sent about 20 staff to the facility to help deliver care. Ashley Homme, the general manager of Millrise Seniors Village, said the facility is more than open and transparent. A COVID-19 outbreak was initially declared at the site on April 15, according to AHS. AHS said that its action at Millrise came just days after it and the United Nurses of Alberta signed an agreement to ensure that Albertans in care homes would be supported during staffing shortages.
