Residential Care Strike Team FAQs Compassionate Care Visitation

What circumstances or situations are included as part of allowing a Compassionate Care visit to occur?


In addition to terminal end-of-life situations, Compassionate Care visitation may be allowed to provide personal medical and emotional care for residents who have experienced a sharp decline in their overall health and well being due to COVID-19 isolation. 

Situations such as these can include any or all of the following:

  • a decline in overall status due to worsening mental health 

  • memory or cognitive conditions 

  • progressively worsening conditions of grief and/or depression, confusion, anxiety 

  • physical decline due to COVID-19 isolation restrictions. 

In some cases weight loss, weakness and decline in physical function accompany these circumstances.
