Visitation 

Starting July 26, residents and patients can have any number of visitors, and visitors no longer need to schedule their visits. Family and friends are welcome to DROP-IN and stay as long as you want to, as long as you enter the building during our new ENTRY TIMES.

The online booking system is no longer needed and “Visiting Hours” are changing to “Entry Times.” Everyone who enters the building still needs to be screened, and the entry times reflect the times screeners will be present.

Family and friends visiting a resident at end-of-life may come to the centre at any time and use the buzzer to enter the building after hours.

Please continue to maintain physical distance from other residents and visitors while you visiting indoors or outdoors.

Masking

Visitors are allowed to join recreation programs.  However, visitors must:

  • remain masked at all times in common areas,
  • refrain from eating and drinking,
  • stay with their loved one,
  • not be assisting with serving or assisting other residents at this time.  

Visitors can remove masks in private rooms or private visiting areas. In a shared room situation, the other resident/patient(s) must consent before a visitor can remove a mask and physical distancing of two metres must be maintained.

Virtual Visits

We ask family members and friends who are visiting in-person to facilitate these visits going forward, where possible.  If you need assistance, please connect with the Coordinator of Volunteer Services at your centre or a recreation team member.

As well, we invite you to follow us on the CapitalCare Facebook page to see photos and videos of residents engaging in activities or to pass along messages.

For more information or general questions please email us at  info@capitalcare.net.
