The comfort and care of our residents coming to the end of their life journey is our primary concern. Therefore we need to ensure adequate staffing levels and the health and safety of our care team.
Following advice from the Chief Medical Officer of Health for Ontario, we have implemented the following guidelines to minimize exposure to respiratory illnesses, including COVID-19 and to ensure that we have adequate staffing levels to provide quality care:
Visitors are limited to 1 dedicated visitor per resident and should plan to visit only once per day. Any visits for the imminently dying will be pre-arranged with the Director of Residential Care.
Anyone entering the building, including staff, will undergo a complete screening that includes temperature checks.
Visitors who do not pass the screening will not be permitted to visit whether they are considered essential or not.
Video-calling (e.g. Skype, etc.) can be set up as an alternate means of communication; please contact us in advance to set this up.
Our in-house volunteer program as well as the bereavement support group are suspended until further notice.
Visiting volunteers will keep in touch via phone and where possible, online and will communicate any concerns to the Hospice clinical team.
All in-person meetings and training sessions have been cancelled until the end of April at which time we will re-assess the current situation.
We appreciate your understanding as we navigate through this challenging situation.
Further updates will be shared as they become available on our website and our Facebook page. Please feel free to contact us at 519-508-4900 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Because You Cared
The Stratford Perth Hospice Foundation is a community based charitable organization committed to raising operational funding for the Rotary Hospice Stratford Perth where palliative individuals, as well as their loved ones, are supported through their end-of-life journeys.
The Rotary Hospice provides a peaceful, comfortable home with 24-hour specialized palliative care for those living with a terminal illness as well as support for those in their circle.
