Kipnes Centre for Veterans is on a centre-wide alert after one staff tested postive for COVID-19.


Visitation Reminder

Since July 26, visitors are welcome to DROP-IN, if you enter the building during our new ENTRY TIMES. Entry Times reflect the hours screeners are present.

One exception is for family and friends visiting a resident at end-of-life. You may come to the centre at any time and use the buzzer to enter the building after hours.

Visitors, volunteers, service providers, entertainers, and anyone entering our buildings must continue to:

  • Be screened.
  • Wear a mask in common areas
  • Perform hand hygiene
  • Maintain physical distancing.

Visitors may take part in recreation activities provided they:

  • 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, unless the centre is on outbreak. 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

If you need assistance to facilitate a virtual visit, 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.
