You are encouraged to go on outings with family and friends. Please fill in the Sign-In/Out sheet located at the nursing station on each Resident Home Area. This ensures the care team is aware of when you are leaving, with whom, and your anticipated time of return.
Responsibility for care of residents during casual and vacation leaves rest with a person who the Director of Care believes is capable of fulfilling the responsibility. The responsible person must be 19 years of age or over and must acknowledge that he/she will provide appropriate care for the resident as instructed by the nursing staff.
The responsible person must notify the nurse in charge if the resident is admitted to hospital during the leave. In addition to vacation and casual leaves, there are also medical and psychiatric leaves.
Please refer to your Accommodation Agreement for additional information about approved leaves of absence.
