We are happy to announce we will be launching online scheduling on Monday, July 13th. Effective this date the new online schedule will be our preferred method of booking any type of visit.
We have recently updated the outdoor visiting policy, increasing visiting time from 30 to 60 minutes, with indoor visits remaining at 30 minutes. We have scaled back on the 48 hour advance notice for short-stay absences and are now requiring 24 hours’ notice of all types of visits. This advanced notice is essential for ensuring proper communication for our team and most importantly, gives us the time to communicate with the residents and their families in the case of any necessary changes.
