Please note:

  • We will check whether the resident is permitted and wishes to have a visitor — a limit of two visitors per resident per day applies
  • Visitors will be greeted and escorted to the resident’s room. Once the visit is over, please notify staff on the call bell and wait to be escorted to the exit.
  • Visits are limited to resident rooms or outdoor areas
