We take the health and safety of our residents and companions very seriously as they are particularly vulnerable to COVID-19.
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.

In spite of the recent announcement by the SHA, we have made the decision NOT to allow delivery of flowers or plants. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we seek to provide a safe environment.
Regrettably, we are not able to accept any home cooking/baking, delivery of food from restaurants (ie. pizza, Skip the Dishes etc), or other items not easily wiped down. We know that this is sad for both residents and family members, and we invite you to think creatively for items that are factory packaged and easily sanitized. We wipe down every single item that is dropped off on the rack in between the entrance doors.
Note: we will need to hold ALL items for 24 hours prior to delivery. This includes all grocery items, and we ask that these quantities be kept to a minimum.
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.
Have you clicked on our Facebook page recently? We update it on occasion with messages from our residents, and to show you some of the ways you are making a difference in the lives of residents and staff. We appreciate your notes and prayers of encouragement!
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 5" colourful notes, and we'll 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.
