Suspect COVID-19 Outbreak - Prairie Neighborhood
We have had a resident test positive for COVID-19. Please ensure your thoughts and prayers are extended to our residents, staff, their families, and the entire Samaritan Place community at this time. See the April 8 memo sent to all resident primary contacts.
Samaritan Place is closed to all visitation - both in-person (in-suite)
and Living Room visits.
Pfizer vaccine for staff and residents!
Residents and companions have received their second dose of the vaccine. Vaccinations are still in progress for staff.
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 (or in their rooms) and in staff spaces to bring hope and cheer wherever we can!
Deliveries are made once daily, but each item will be wiped down. Please be reasonable with the volume you deliver.
Deliveries must be received between Monday-Saturday, 11am-4pm or they will remain in the vestibule/lobby.
We offer audio / visual visits for residents/family members 7 days a week. You are welcome to download the Zoom app in advance, and click here to indicate your interest with the Life Enhancement team. 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.
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.
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.
Samaritan Place is operated by Emmanuel Care.

In order to keep everyone in SHA facilities

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.
“It is amazing how it just became home for us.”
