May 20, 2021 - Directive #3 Update Concerning Residents:

It is important for residents to be able to engage in physical activity and take part in activities that bring them joy, comfort, and dignity while still remaining safe. Residents can leave the home to take a walk in the immediate area to support overall physical and mental well-being, including during the stay at home order. Ontario’s stay at home order includes outdoor exercise as one of the essential reasons to leave your home, and this is no different for residents of long term care homes.

Therefore, one essential caregiver at a time can take the resident out for a short walk around Lion’s Head.

The essential caregiver must be fully vaccinated (2 vaccines) and both (caregiver and resident ) must wear a mask while outside. We want to keep our residents safe and the home COVID free. Our residents cannot go down to the beach and socially gather with anyone who has not been screened by Golden Dawn.

It is also acceptable for the essential caregiver to take the resident out for a short car ride. Again as long as the caregiver is fully vaccinated and both (caregiver and resident) wear a mask.

Please call the home and speak with Life Enrichment 519-793-3433 and set up an appointment to take your loved one out.

Essential caregivers must pass screening protocol.
