Hello.

We are so pleased to begin the process of welcoming visitors to our community – so please note one designated visitor will be by appointment, as per the following Health Authority Infection Control Mandates:

 

We celebrate the health of our community, with prioritized infection control ensured during designated visitor experiences within the community.  There is tremendous respect for the patience of all GSV community members during July, and we mindfully welcome one visitor designate per resident, and the devotion, skill and caring of all essential staff.

As new visitation process begins, please note some of the key aspects:
