Visitor Orientation Guidelines
- There are designated parking spots for visitors visiting in the shelter. Access is from Pembina Ave. and the spots are on the south side of the parking lot (facing Pembina Ave.).
- Arrive five (5) minutes prior to the scheduled time to allow for the screening process. If there is a delay in the arrival, the visitation time will NOT be extended, due to the required time for cleaning the shelter between visits.
- Proceed to the labelled shelter that you are scheduled for and wait outside the door. The screening person will open the door from the inside (it is locked from the outside)
- You must follow infection control measures: wear a mask during the entire time of the visit, maintain physical distance from the resident (6ft) and perform hand hygiene when entering the shelter.
- No food or beverages are allowed in the visitation space.
- No pets are allowed in the visitation space.
- After your screening is successful, the resident will be brought into the visitation space and your 30-minute visit will begin.
- There is a call bell in place in case you require assistance with the resident or your visit is ending earlier than scheduled.
- In case of a fire, a staff member will come and assist with the evacuation, either through the outside door or the resident’s space, depending on where the fire is located.
- When the visitation time is over, you will be asked to leave the shelter and only after you have left will, the resident will be taken back to the care area.
