Pre-authorized essential caregivers have access to our home, however all other general visitors must pre-book either an indoor or outdoor visit through our Activity Director at 613-932-3707 ext 710.
For any other questions regarding COVID policies please call 613-932-3707 ext 701 to speak with our Executive Director.
