We want families to feel welcome and connected during their loved ones’ serious decline and recognize that both may benefit from each other’s company.
To this end, we may be able to offer overnight accommodation for a short period of time in our private and comfortable Family Room located in Fundyview Neighbourhood.
It is important to recognize that this is not to be considered an alternative to usual accommodations for family that is visiting the area from out of town.
Use of the Family Room will be based on priority need if there is more than one request at the same time. Requests will be considered by the Charge Nurse.
It is important that our residents and staff are aware when there are guests staying overnight in the Home. We therefore, ask that you provide us with some basic information to be passed onto our Nurse in Charge. This information would also be communicated to responders in the event of an emergency situation.
