Visiting (effective April 2023)

Visits are critical to the well-being of our residents, families and staff.  Visits are available to all of our residents and while there are not restricted visiting hours we recommend visiting between the hours of 11:00 am – 7:00 pm to support resident safety and the delivery of care.  There is not a restriction on the number of visitors, however when visiting a resident with a roommate we generally request that visits be limited to two (2) visitors in the resident’s room at a time.  We do understand that this is not always possible.  Please let us know and we will do our best to make necessary accommodations.  Our dining rooms and living room are great spaces for comfortable visits with larger groups.

At present, masks are not required for visitors.  When the Community Transmission Level is HIGH or should there be active COVID cases on a unit, masking will be necessary.   We post the Community Transmission Level and identify any units with active COVID cases at the front entrance.  Masks are always available at the entrance to the facility as well.

We continue to request that visitors maintain a safe distance of 6 feet apart (3 ceiling tiles) from other residents and staff in the facility.

Individuals who have had a POSITIVE COVID-19 test, an EXPOSURE to someone who is positive for COVID-19, or experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 in the past ten (10) days should refrain from visiting.   If rescheduling a visit is not possible please notify the receptionist upon arrival so that we can support a safe visit for you, our residents and our staff.

Sociable and leashed pets with proof of up-to-date rabies vaccination are welcome to visit.  We ask that you provide a copy of the pet’s vaccination to the receptionist upon arrival.  

For the safety of our residents and staff, anyone testing positive for COVID-19 within 2 days after visiting should immediately notify our Nursing Supervisor at (603) 627-5540 x 7355.
