Stay Informed

Please check COVID-19 Updates often. You can also follow us on Twitter or visit our Facebook page.

Since COVID-19 first emerged in Canada towards the end of January, we have communicated regularly about the evolving situation via phone blasts, memos, online and in our newsletters. We will continue to keep you updated in the coming weeks.

Anyone with concerns about their loved one in a peopleCare Home is encouraged to speak to the charge nurse. The Executive Director or Director of Care are also there to support you.
