Currently, no residents and no staff members are active with COVID-19.

Outdoor and Virtual Visits:
Our centre now has two outdoor visiting areas. One area can accommodate up to five persons (including the resident). Starting May 17, the second area can accommodate up to 10 persons (including the resident). Please bring your own chairs and maintain continuous masking and physical distancing.

Virtual visits are still an option. Please use the online booking system to schedule these visits.

Indoor Visits
Currently, indoor visitation is limited to Designated Support Persons (DSPs), and each resident can have up to four DSPs. If you would like to increase the number of DSPs for your loved one, please contact reception during business hours, Monday to Friday, 8:00 am to 4:00pm. They will direct you to the person looking after DSP arrangements. We ask that only one to two DSPs visit at a time so that we can maintain physical distancing and other safety measures. If you are a new DSP, please arrive 20 minutes early to complete the visitation training with the front entrance staff before entering the building.

We are working with residents and families on an approach for indoor social visits that works within the guidelines set out in public health Order 16-2021. We will have more information in the coming weeks.

All visits continue to be scheduled in advance – no drop ins.

Whether or not you are vaccinated, we ask all DSPs and visitors who come to the centres to be kind and considerate to staff, and to continue complying with public health measures. These include:
• Continuous masking
• Refraining from eating and drinking
• Remaining in the assigned visiting area

Please review the Frequently Asked Questions and complete the Self-Assessment BEFORE you come to the centre.

Deliveries:
Laundry pick up and drop off services continue at the front reception. Please come to the centre between 10am and 6pm to drop off items. 

We accept deliveries (books, flowers, chocolates) for residents on all neighbourhoods. Coffee and snacks for residents are also welcome, but please do not bring them during a scheduled visit.
