There are no restrictions on essential caregivers or general visitors unless a Resident is required to be isolated then it will be only one essential caregiver per Resident at a time.
Social absences continue for all Residents except those Residents who are required to be isolated.
Effective November 28, 2022, visitors coming into the home will no longer be required to show QR code proof of vaccination to gain entry. All general visitors with the exception of children under the age of 1 will need to follow the testing policy of the home. Visiting hours for the home are 9:00am to 7:00pm seven days a week. All visitors coming into the home will continue to be rapid antigen tested daily and wait for their results before going to see their Resident. Masks must be worn when entering and moving about the home.
Essential caregivers are coming into the home seven days a week from 9:00am to 7:00pm and will be pre-determined by the Social Worker or the Supervisor of Programs and Volunteer Services. An essential caregiver will be a family member/friend/paid caregiver who can demonstrate that they provide direct care to the Resident (i.e. feeding, bathing, exercise, emotional support, cognitive stimulation etc.). If you wish to be considered as an essential caregiver, please contact Jaime Chapman, Social Worker or Nicole Tweedie, Supervisor of Programs and Volunteer Services.
Essential visitors will be permitted into Norview Lodge. The Ministry of Health defines essential visitors as those whose loved one is very ill or near end-of-life. These visitors will continue to be screened prior to entering the home. There is no limit on the number of essential visitors per Resident who has been deemed end of life/palliative.
The home continues to take direction from the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Long Term Care and our Local Public Health unit regarding COVID-19. Norview Lodge continues to recommend (but no longer required) mask use by visitors. However, we do support the Resident’s right to see their visitors without a mask on and visitors may share a drink or a meal with their Resident in their private room. For Residents in a basic rooms, visitors may only share a drink or a meal with their Resident in a designated area and are to arrange a private visit to share a meal/drink in designated areas (i.e. activity room on each RHA, board room) and may remove their mask in these locations during their visit.
The restrictions are part of the province-wide effort to contain the spread of COVID-19, a respiratory virus which can be quite serious for the elderly or those with a compromised immune system.
