Welcome Back!  

 

As of June 9th, we have more changes to our visiting guidelines.

For full details, please review the Essential Caregiver & General VIsitor Table of Changes for full details. 


Here are the overall guidelines for outdoor visits:
  • Outdoor visits take place every day between 1:30 and 4:00 pm. Each visit can be up to 60 minutes.
  • Each resident may have up to two general visitors at a time and essential caregivers can also be present during these visits (Maximum of 4 individuals)
  • Children under the age of 2 do not count toward the general visitor minimum.
  • Visitors must be actively screened upon arrival but do not require a rapid antigen test as their visit will be outdoors.
  • Visitors must maintain physical distancing from others and wear a mask provided by Dundas Manor. Eye protection is not required if you are fully vaccinated.
  • Visits take place outside the secure patio outside the living room at one of 3 socially distanced stations. Please ensure physical distancing from residents behind the plexiglass shield. 
  • To book an outdoor visit for any day of the week, please call Britanny Thompson at 613-774-2293 between 8 and 4 pm, Monday to Friday.
Here are the overall guidelines for indoor visits: 
  • General visitors are not permitted indoors unless the health condition of the resident makes outdoor visits highly unlikely or impossible. If indoors, the visitor will require a rapid test prior to entering the home. 
  • If you are an assigned essential caregiver, you will get actively screened at the front door and will be directed to our Rapid Testing Pod for antigen testing. This test is required up to 3 times per week in order to enter the home - often every other day. The test takes 15 minutes to process. Once you have a negative result, the tester will ask you to return to the front entrance screener to obtain a surgical mask. Eye protection is not required if you are fully vaccinated. 
  • On days you are not requiring a rapid test, you will be actively screened, provided with your PPE and entrance to the home.  
  • Visiting hours are from 10 am to 6 pm each day.  Only one person can visit with a resident at a time. Visits are in their room.
  • Please do not visit if you do not feel well.  Please ensure physical distancing.
  • We can accept presents that can be wiped down. 
Here are the overall guidelines for when a resident leaves from the home:
  • If a resident is fully vaccinated, they may leave the facility for a social leave (less than 24 hours). This does not have to be booked in advance. We ask that when out the resident wear a mask if tolerated and follow all other protocols in place in the community including social distancing and gatherings.
  • If a resident is fully vaccinated, they may go for an overnight leave however upon return they will require a Swab (PCR test) and they will be isolated until a negative result is obtained. We ask that these leaves be booked in advance by calling the nursing station. Overnight leave of absences will be limited due to the requirement to isolate upon return. 
  • Please read these additional instructions. (added June 17h)
