The Collingwood Nursing Home encourages families to visit as often as possible. Family, friends and guests are a very important part of our resident’s lives. We practice an open hours visiting policy with consideration taken for the comfort, schedules, and privacy of our residents. We encourage involvement, such as meal times and activities. Please do not hesitate to speak with us regarding family or other’s involvement.

When visiting residents in their room, keep in mind the “noise” element which may be disturbing to other residents. Nursing home staff reserve the right to ask visitors to leave the room while treatment is being given to a resident.

We suggest that if you plan to visit after 8:00 p.m, to call the Nursing Home in advance as the doors will be locked at this time.

Visiting Hours 8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.

Please help us ensure that our staff are not interrupted from giving resident care.

Food and Treats

Food and treats should all be monitored by our Home, including our Dietician, Food Service Supervisor and each resident’s Physician. We monitor for diet control, special dietary needs such as diabetes and potential choking hazards. This can only be accomplished by being aware of all food items brought into our Home. We ask that any food items that are to be brought into the Home are first discussed with the Charge Nurse/Dietitian. We also ask that you do not leave food items in the resident’s drawer, as this can lead to food poisoning and insect infestation.

Family/Friends/Visitors who want to share a meal that is brought into the Home from outside, may do so using the Home’s Sitting Room. Additionally, the Home’s staff cannot store or serve food items brought into our Home from an outside source.
