Visitors and Volunteers

Effective March 14, 2020, St. Joseph’s Continuing Care Centre has restricted visitation.  The Chief Medical Officer of Health has recommended only allowing essential visitors until further notice.  The ministry is identifying essential visitors as those who have a resident who is dying or very ill.  No other visitors should be permitted to enter our premises, instead you are asked to keep in touch with loved ones by phone or other technologies, as available. The safety and well-being of our vulnerable residents/patients is our top priority and we thank you for understanding.

Although visits home have been restricted by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, discharges home are still

confidential voicemail and expect a return call within 24 hours of reception (Monday to Friday).

Please note: Our nurses and doctors continue to ensure prompt communication with families in the event of a
significant change in medical condition during these times.


How can families help support St. Joseph’s Continuing Care Centre?

There are many ways that families can help support our Centre. First and foremost, please continue to assist
our staff in presenting a united front when it comes to following the recommendations and staying at home. Secondly,
any gestures to demonstrate appreciation for front line staff are welcomed. It is also possible to drop off donations of
personal protective equipment such as gloves, gowns and masks (unopened boxes only). These donations are similarly
being requested by other hospitals and long-term care homes, due to anticipated shortages.

While there are no specific guidelines or regulations around making homemade masks, there are some best practices to follow:

  • High thread count or tightly woven cotton fabrics are best in terms of material in order to help block out particles (like cotton t-shirt, pillow cases or are good options).
  •  A layer of interface material is welcome
  • Pre-washing material (in hot water) is recommended before sewing
  • A piece of metal (like a paper clip or a pipe cleaner) to help make it fit snugly around the nose is helpful
