Holiday gifts for Residents in Long-Term Care and Retirement

With the Holiday season just around the corner Families may be wondering about bringing gifts into the Home for their loved one. Gifts are absolutely permitted however we kindly ask that all items (including food) visitors wish to give to Residents must be transported to the home in wipe down containers and must be presented at the screening table upon arrival to the home. Such items will be examined, wiped down and provided to the Resident by staff. Floral arrangements are also allowed.

Families should drop off their gifts a few days prior to Christmas to ensure staff have enough time to wipe down the gifts and deliver to the Resident in time for the big day.

Visiting protocols remain in place and are subject to change based on ever evolving information coming from the Provincial Government. You are encouraged to check with your loved one’s Home to see what arrangements can be made to share the Holidays safely during this pandemic.

We thank you for your patience, cooperation and understanding.

Previous announcements: 

Short Stay and Temporary Absences during the COVID-19 Pandemic

On August 28, 2020, the Chief Medical Officer of Health released an update to COVID-19 Directive #3 for Long-Term Care Homes under the Long-Term Care Homes Act, 2007.

Residents of Long-Term Care Homes (LTCH) are now permitted to leave for short stay and temporary absences. Short stay absences are for health care-related, social or other reasons and do not include an overnight stay, with the exception of single-night emergency room visits. Short stay absences do not require approval or prearrangement. Please Read our information poster.


Starting July 22, indoor visits in long-term care and retirement homes will be permitted.  Read our guidelines on how to enjoy a safe visit with your loved one.  Visits July 2020 Head Office letterhead for website.pdf

The Provincial government has announced that outdoor visits can now include two people effective July 15 and visitors are no longer required to have COVID testing prior to visiting. We are excited to welcome visitors back to our retirement and long-term care homes, although in a very different capacity, as we continue to observe regulations due to COVID-19. Please read the Enhanced Visiting at Caressant Care document.

Public Health Ontario has developed the resources to support stakeholders with the outbreak of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). You can also check the Ontario Ministry of Health website for updates.
