- Encouraging guests to make an appointment for office visits, see contact details above. Visits include pre-screening check.
- Offering family education, support groups and community programs virtually.
- Increasing our capacity to connect with families by phone.
- Ensuring proper sanitation, physical distancing and signage are implemented in our offices and by our staff, volunteers and guests in compliance with Manitoba Health regulations and recommendations.
Distance and COVID can make it difficult to spend time with the person you care about. Together Apart is a Virtual Visiting Guide to help connect those living with dementia to family, friends and volunteers.
