Samaritan Place is operated by Emmanuel Care.

Resident/Family Visiting Guidelines are in effect as of July 6.
Visiting hours are 11 am - 7 pm.
Main contacts have received details using preferred contact method, and these should be shared with other family members.
Each individual must be pre-screened to be considered and given access for visitation. We ask that you phone ONE of the numbers listed in the letter you received, and if necessary, leave a message and wait for a call back. Please be patient as we process a large volume of requests.
Please click link below for fence visits ONLY.
We have enacted our pandemic operational plan to keep your loved ones safe. This has and will necessitate some extraordinary measures. These are difficult determinations for the health and safety of those who live and work here.
Our doors are closed to all visitors until further notice. All staff and support persons go through a screening process at building entrance, and continuous mask use is in place in resident areas at all time.

If you'd like to have a garden fence visit, please click here to contact the Life Enhancement Guides to make these arrangements.
Please do not call Care Staff directly for these visits, in order that they may provide care for all residents.
You are welcome to have commercially prepared and packaged flowers and plants delivered to Samaritan Place - and these will now be delivered immediately.
You are welcome to have food delivered to a resident from a restaurant using a delivery service, or from a drive-through service. We are also accepting home baking, however it must be in an easily wipe-able container. All food items will be wiped down before being released for resident enjoyment.
Note: Home baking and delivered grocery items are still being held for 24 hours, and we ask that these quantities be kept to a minimum. All other restaurant delivers are deliver immediately upon receiving.
NO DELIVERIES ON FRIDAY PLEASE, AS WE HAVE NO ONE TO DELIVER ON SATURDAY.
Social distancing can be tough. And being apart from loved ones can feel lonely. The Messenger Ox Project is a 3rd party video transfer and hosting space - using technology and video messaging to help you stay connected even when you're apart from your resident living at Samaritan Place. This allows you to create a video message on your smartphone, which is then shared with the one you love. Click here for more details.
We want to encourage you to continue sending messages of encouragement to residents or staff members. Please click here, and we will write out your short message on colourful notes, and post them on resident doorways and in staff spaces to bring hope and cheer wherever we can!
We offer audio / visual visits for residents/family members during office hours, Monday through Saturday . You are welcome to download the Zoom app in advance, and click here to indicate your interest with the Life Enhancement team. We want to ensure that there is equal opportunity for all to participate, and we limit the number of appointments to 1 per week per family at this time. Bookings are made up to a week in advance, and time slots are maximum 30 minutes. If using Face Time, please wait for the connection and do not initiate in order to ensure you do not interrupt a scheduled call!
Please use the link provided above to indicate your interest, and do not call staff to visit with residents in order that they may spend time caring for residents.
