Welcome to Huron Lodge
Recently the Ontario government released its Roadmap to Reopen, which specifically allows long-term care homes to welcome both essential caregivers and general visitors to see their loved ones. This announcement does not change the directives governing essential caregivers. More information for general visitors can be picked up at the screening area of Huron Lodge.
The following protocols are currently in place for designated caregivers:
Two designated essential caregivers per resident.
Designated caregivers are asked to only bring in essential personal items that are absolutely required for your visit.
Designated caregivers are being asked to assist their family member with meal service and other personal supports as they may be needed.
Active symptom screening of staff and designated caregivers: homes must actively screen all those entering the home.
Designated caregivers are now able to receive their COVID-19 test on site at Huron Lodge.
Designated caregivers must wear surgical/procedure masks at all times for the full duration of the visit to Huron Lodge. Masks must cover the nose, mouth and chin at all times while on the premises.
Eye protection, such as face shields or goggles, must be worn when within two metres of a resident in an indoor area.
Designated caregivers are able to use the seating areas at the end of each hallway or the outdoor balconies located in each home area. Taking your loved one for an outdoor walk is encouraged.
We sincerely understand that these are very challenging and stressful times for everyone. Please know that the established protocols for designated caregivers, staff and residents have been put in place in order to keep our home as safe as possible.
We thank you for your understanding and ongoing support.
