Nisbet Lodge: COVID Update January 13, 2021
We continue to wrestle with a COVID outbreak. As of this morning, we have three new cases on the eighth floor, which brings our case count to six. An additional PSW and RPN have been added there to support care. All residents are being retested today. The results should be available on Friday. Our communication team has been calling all families twice a week with an update.
In terms of staff, there were no new cases from the tests on Monday. We have daily calls with Michael Garron Hospital who are supported us through the outbreak.
I encourage all of you to follow provincial guidelines. The increasing number of cases in the community are having a direct impact on increased cases in long-term care homes. Lastly, McClintock Manor is still COVID free, for which we give, thanks. We ask for your continued prayers for the health and safety of all who live and work here. Stay safe.

Everyone here is devoted to ensuring high-quality professional and compassionate care for every resident of Nisbet Lodge. We also work so that tenants of McClintock Manor enjoy life to the fullest.
To accomplish that, I am privileged to lead a committed and skilled staff. We are fortunate to have dedicated volunteers and Board members, and a very significant roster of community partners.
Nisbet Lodge is a charitable, not-for-profit organization, a home that cares for just over 100 seniors. We offer residents accommodation and care that fulfills the needs of today’s seniors, in a Christian environment.
McClintock Manor is an apartment building for seniors who can live on their own. We provide 62 apartments where seniors can live independently in a “good-neighbour community.
The Nisbet Lodge McClintock Manor Foundation exists to support the present and future work of both the Lodge and the Manor. Started in 1993, the Foundation raises funds for capital projects that benefit both the Lodge and Manor.
Your gifts are crucial, as we always must find additional funds to cover many important needs of our residents and tenants. We value every gift and every donor either it is a donation or volunteering.
