Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, physical distancing requirements and visitor restrictions in long-term care (LTC) have needed to be put in place to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Gradually as visits resume in LTC homes, it is important for homes to engage in deliberate planning, with thorough communication to residents, families and team members. Family members of residents in LTC are important partners in care. This resource card has compiled some resources available that can support homes as they plan for, co-ordinate and support visits. This page will be updated as the situation and directives evolve, so please check back regularly.
