Deconfinement measures

Dear residents and family members,

deconfinementWe would like to inform you that we must wait for the written directives from the Ministry in order to proceed with the deconfinement measures that were announced during the premiere of Quebec’s press briefing. We will inform you in writing as soon as we receive them.

With Mother’s Day approaching, we wish to remind you of the guidelines regarding the delivery of goods in CHSLDs, RPAs, and RI-RTFs. Delivery services are permitted, but the goods must be delivered to the main entrance and be disinfected before being passed on to the residents. No contact with the residents is allowed. And to comply with hygiene and cleanliness guidelines, meals prepared at home are not permitted. Only meals that come from shops are allowed.

Here are some useful definitions in the current context:

Caregiver: Family member or person considered to be a family member who provides care or support to the seriously ill or injured person or the person who requires end-of-life care.

Family member: Includes the immediate family and any other family member or individual considered to be a family member, whether or not this person is related by marriage or a common-law relationship or any other legal parent-child relationship.

Care or support: Defined as the care provided to a seriously ill or injured person or a person who requires end-of-life care. Support is defined as the psychological or emotional support provided to a seriously ill or injured person or a person who requires end-of-life care.

Seriously ill or injured person: Someone whose basic health status has deteriorated significantly due to an illness or injury.

We understand your frustration, impatience, and sadness related to being away from your loved ones. Despite that, it is important to follow the safety directives from the government. We are as eager as you are to be able to slowly resume social life in the residence. We will keep you informed as soon as we receive written updates from the government regarding deconfinement.

We thank you for your patience and cooperation.

the safety of our residents

The Safety of our Residents is our Priority

the safety of our residentsThis is the list of measures we have taken to ensure the health of our residents and prevent the spread of the virus:

  • We have improved an already-strict daily cleaning procedure with rigorous protocols for key points of contact, including door handles and keyboards. All surfaces are regularly cleaned with antibacterial cleaners.
  • Our team has the obligation to wash their hands frequently and use hand sanitizer throughout the day.
  • We are limiting the entry of staff to the units. The basic housekeeping of the apartments is canceled for residents who are able to clean themselves.
  • Deep cleaning of common areas is done throughout the day.
  • All activities have been canceled indefinitely.
  • We are setting up virtual activities to entertain residents (virtual sports lessons, virtual yoga, and virtual recreational activities) and we are providing tablets to residents.
  • Visits are forbidden.
  • A daily information board has been installed in a strategic location.
  • All deliveries are left at the entrance by delivery people and then brought to our staff. All products, except for frozen/perishable products and all newspapers/mail are quarantined for three hours.
  • Publi-sacs and other flyers are refused.
  • Hand soap dispensers are placed in strategic locations.
  • All new clients are quarantined for 48 hours.
  • We are using disposable utensils, cups, plates, and bowls.
  • Natural caregivers are allowed under strict conditions, like our staff.
  • Katasa will continue to share Health Canada updates regularly and advise all team members to stay at home if they feel sick.
  • Walks outside are forbidden.

All these measures will be reviewed from week to week. We will keep you informed as developments occur.
