Rapid Testing Update - An antigen test at a frequency set out in the Ministry of Health COVID-19 Guidance: Considerations for Antigen Point-of-Care Testing, at a minimum (i.e., currently antigen testing 2-3 times per week for yellow/orange/red/grey zones and 1-2 times per week in the green zone); or 1 PCR (polymerase chain reaction) and 1 antigen test per week (i.e., other homes, for example those experiencing significant staffing challenges or with fast turn-around times for PCR testing, may use this alternate model that was previously reserved for rural, remote and northern communities).
Support workers and general visitors (where permitted) are still required to undergo a “day of” antigen test unless they were tested the previous day (i.e., a negative antigen test result is valid for 2 days). For those support workers and general visitors being tested, the result must be obtained before gaining entry to the home unless the support worker is a Regulated Health Professional.
As the pandemic situation evolves in Ontario, direction regarding visits to our Homes will be adjusted as necessary, keeping the safety and emotional wellbeing of residents, staff and families at the forefront.

Welcome to Caressant Care
We have the privilege of taking care of nearly 1300 residents in our 15 Long Term Care Homes and over 700 residents in our 10 Retirement Homes. Our corporate office is located in Woodstock, Ontario and all of our Homes can be found in small cities and towns across Ontario. It is important to note that all of our Retirement Homes are attached to one of our Nursing Homes which gives our residents a true continuum of care. We have a number of spouses in our Homes living on either side of the continuum.
