Alberta Health Services (AHS) has developed an online tool that allows designated family/support persons and other visitors to request scheduled visits with their loved ones in continuing care sites that are operated by AHS, Capital Care, Carewest and Covenant Health online.
Visitation currently allows up to two family/support persons per resident for indoor visits, allows other visitors in extenuating circumstances (e.g. end of life), and outdoor visits with up to five individuals including the resident. In-person visits and virtual or telephone visits that require staff support must be arranged ahead of time with staff/site leaders.
Albertans who want to request a visit at a participating continuing care site can go to AHS.ca/ccvisit and complete the online request form.
