Visitation
Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer of Health has not yet lifted restrictions on visitation for continuing care settings.

  • outdoor visits (except centres on outbreak)
  • window visits
  • virtual visits (FaceTime/Skype/WhatsApp)
  • telephone calls
  • CapitalCare Foundation's "Let's Connect" postcard program. Click here for details.

To schedule a connection with a resident, or make a non-urgent request use the new intake form.

Participants needed for research study
CapitalCare is conducting a study to understand family members’ experiences and perspectives during COVID-19. Our research team would like interview family members to get your opinion on the public health measures put in place during the pandemic. Interviews will take approximately 30-45 minutes and will happen over the telephone or Skype/Zoom. Interviews are completely voluntary and confidential. This study was approved by the University of Alberta’s Health Research Ethics Board (Pro00101906).
