Dear families of Shelburne Long-Term Care,

This past weekend, many families across the province celebrated Father’s Day with their fathers and grandfathers, and while COVID-19 continues to present challenges to how we interact with friends and family, for the first time in months, many families had the opportunity to come together in-person and visit their loved ones in long-term care.

Our community at Shelburne LTC is thankfully one of the homes that can accommodate these visits beginning June 23rd, and it has brought us great joy to know that families will be reunited very soon, without barriers to their interactions.

While we continue to work to ensure that our home remains free of this terrible virus, we would like to remind everyone of some of the requirements that the provincial government has put in place when allowing visitors into long-term care homes. These conditions include:

  • A home must not be experiencing an outbreak of the virus;
  • Only one family at a time may visit, and interactions can be no more than 30 minutes;
  • Visitors must complete and pass a screening questionnaire upon arrival at the home;
  • Physical distancing must be observed at all times during visits; and
  • Visitors must have had a negative COVID test within 14 days of their visit.
  • No food or drink is allowed during the visit

We know that families may have some questions about how to arrange and prepare for a visit. To help address some of your inquiries, we have enclosed an FAQ that we hope you will find useful.

We are extremely excited to welcome our family partners back into our home, and we are happy to support you in every way we can.
