Seniors' Health Centre Visitor Guidelines

Family members may visit their loved ones under the guidance of our new safety measures put in place to protect the health of residents and staff. We must continue to practice proper hand hygiene and socially distance whenever possible to limit the spread of COVID-19. Please read the information below carefully:

  • One (1) essential caregiver per resident will be able to visit Seniors’ Health Centre (SHC). 
  • As of November 10, 2020, SHC offers COVID-19 testing to all essential caregivers who do not have symptoms of COVID-19. Testing is available to those who are asymptomatic only and will take place in our Day Hospital, which can be accessed through the north entrance of SHC (located to the right of our main entrance). Essential caregivers will be asked to fill out an active screening questionnaire, before visiting a loved one.
  • Visitors will be required to attest to a negative COVID-19 test result (within the last 14 days). Our staff will not provide testing for families and loved ones.

Our updated guidelines have been implemented, in consultation with our Medical Director and Toronto Public Health, to ensure we continue to follow safety practices in our long-term care setting, and to safely reunite residents and loved ones.
