To all Family Members:

We are happy to announce we are still COVID FREE at Dufferin Care Centre!

We rescheduled our Neighbourhood Christmas Parties for this week. We have already done the A and B neighbourhoods on both floors, and will be doing C today, and D tomorrow. The residents are loving all the festive spirits around.

Please kindly remember before your visit to ensure you do the pre-screening questionnaire. If you are feeling unwell, have a temperature, have been in contact with someone who is covid positive or travelled outside of Canada in the last 14 days, to kindly reschedule your visit.

We continue to allow our scheduled visits to families 7 days a week. We offer Facetime, Window and In-Person. Please kindly send your request for an appointment to have a visit at dcc-familyvisits@retirementconcepts.com or by our new designated phone number if this is more convenient for you, the number is 604-472-4151. Please keep in mind Fran (screener) does scheduling for visits Monday-Friday 9 am-5 pm.

Please kindly note, if you are dropping off food for your loved one, according to Fraser Health’s directive it must be non-perishable ONLY (must be consumed immediately, we cannot store any non-dried goods). Please ensure the non-perishable items have the name of the resident, room number and date it was packaged.
