In an effort to safely re-open long-term care homes, the Ministry has made changes to the policy affecting visitors and resident absences. Here is a brief summary:
Residents who are fully vaccinated may leave the home for social absences either for the day or overnight. They are required to wear a mask and follow public health protocols while away.
Day outings are to be requested by email or phone in advance (24hours) with the Director of Care or Assistant Director of Care. Residents will be screened for COVID upon their return. If they fail the screen, they will be required to self-isolate for fourteen days and PCR tested after the eight day.
The resident or family must provide 48 hours’ notice to the Director of Care or Assistant Director of Care via email or by phone. They will gather information using the leave of absence questionnaire and risk assessment to determine if it is safe to be out. The Director of Care/Assistant Director of Care will notify the family/resident 24 hours in advance whether the outing is approved. Prior to the outing, a consent form will be completed and COVID-related material provided. All residents returning to the home will be screened and if they test positive, will be put on self-isolation for fourteen days and PCR tested on the eighth day.
Fully immunized essential caregivers may support a resident in the dining room without eye protection. Partially immunized/unimmunized essential caregivers are not permitted to enter the dining room. Full PPE including eye protection are required when in the rest of the building.
Outside visits continue and can be booked through email@example.com or by calling 416-469-1105 extension 1144. There can now be a maximum of four outside visitors (two general or two essential). Outside visits take place Monday, Tuesday and Thursday at 10:00 am, 10:30 am and 11:15 am. On Saturday and Sunday, the times are 2:00 pm, 3:15 pm and 3:45 pm.
Now that things are opening up more, virtual calls can be booked on an ‘as-needed basis. Again, contact Sonia Taylor, Director of Programs and Volunteer Services.
These new directives come into place on Wednesday, June 9, 2021. If you have any questions about the process please contact Ama Amoa Williams, Director of Care at firstname.lastname@example.org or 416-469-1105 extension 1140 or Marie De Castro, Assistant Director of Care at 416-469-1105 extension 1150 or email@example.com

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.
