In order to keep everyone in SHA facilities and care homes safe during this time, family presence/visitation is being limited to compassionate reasons only in all SASKATOON SHA facilities and affiliates. These restrictions will be effective at 8:00 am on Wed October 21. These restrictions will be reassessed by 4:00 pm. Tuesday November 3, 2020.
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.

As the weather changes, we are in the process of developing our plan to address indoor visits for those who are not designated visitors. Information will be shared here when we can release the plan.
Deliveries will no longer be subject to a 24-hour hold! They will still be wiped down however. Deliveries must be received between 11-4 Sunday through Friday or they will remain in the vestibule. No deliveries on Saturdays.
You are welcome to have commercially prepared and packaged flowers and plants delivered to Samaritan Place - and these will 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.
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.

The Samaritan Place Difference
Our philosophy of self-led teams and our grounding in resident-directed care are part of what truly make Samaritan Place different.
