To all Family Members and Friends of Dufferin Care Centre,

 

Please be advised that our weekly family updates will be discontinued. Our updates will start again if Dufferin Care Centre begins to experience COVID again. We will continue to communicate as per pre-covid with the monthly newsletter, 1:1 meetings, Family council meetings, emails and telephone calls.

 

Masks are still mandatory in Long-Term Care Homes, so you will be required to wear a mask during your time in/on Dufferin Care Centre property.

 

We continue to screen any family member that comes into the community. To request a Day Outing, or visitation times/dates email this address dcc-familyvisits@retirementconcepts.com or call 604-472-4151 for visitation.  Please include your name, contact telephone number, and name of resident in your email.  Allow 24-48 hours for reply.

 

If at any time, your loved one is contact traced or starts to exhibit symptoms, you will be contacted by phone and informed of the next steps.
