Some of the enhanced safety measures you may see in our homes include:

  • PPE available and required for staff
  • Enhanced Infection Prevention & Control education for all staff and residents
  • Self-screening guidance for visitors and staff
  • Visitor restrictions when required
  • Promotion of good hand hygiene
  • Hand sanitizer readily available
  • Increased cleaning and disinfection of high-touch surfaces
  • Safety measures implemented in all aspects of residents’ daily life, including the dining experience, life enrichment activities, services like hairdressing and personal support, etc.
  • Dedicated IPAC lead

It is thanks to the dedication of our staff and the patience and understanding of our residents and their families that we are able to maintain our communities as safe, engaging and fulfilling places to call home—where residents are always supported and their best interests are always put first.
