Please Note: Outdoor Visits


The Simkin Centre will not be facilitating outdoor visits on Mondays (all day) and Tuesday mornings effective Monday, June 22, 2020.
This decision was made due to a lack of
staff available on these days.

Screening Questions Prior to Outdoor Visits

In order to keep our Residents safe, please review these screening questions PRIOR to your outdoor visit. If you answer YES to any of the screening questions, you will not be allowed to visit the Simkin Centre. These questions will be asked by our Staff each time you visit. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Outdoor Visits with Residents

We are now facilitating on-site outdoor visits for Residents and their essential visitors. “Essential visitors” are those deemed essential to the emotional well being, health and quality of life of your loved one. In most cases, visitors should be close family and/or friends who have a clearly established pattern of involvement in provide care and support.

Due to capacity and in fairness to all Residents and families, we will endeavor to accommodate one outdoor visit per Resident per week, with a maximum of 2 visitors at one time.

Each visit will be scheduled for 30 minutes (this will include screening, set up and visiting).

In case of bad weather, visits may be changed to window visits.

Please understand that we are doing the best we can with no additional resources or staffing.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we take every measure to protect you, your loved ones and our staff.
