I am pleased to report that our recent suspected outbreak was a case of a false positive staff test. We have begun opening things up for residents like floor programs and the dining room. One of our residents, Mary Peel is turning 106 next month and is a COVID survivor! She is quite a woman!
Nisbet along with all LTC homes are moving to the Panbio Antigen Rapid Test. The advantage of this is that it is not as invasive as the NP swab and the tests take place 3 times a week thus reducing the risk of spread. This will apply to both staff and essential caregivers. We will be trialling the tests this week and next and then be up and running by November 15.
All of our residents and staff that signed consents have received their second vaccination. Our compliance numbers are high with 93% for residents and 75% for staff. We continue to encourage people to be vaccinated, as this will help protect us from a possible third wave.

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.
