Welcome Back!

St. Joseph’s Continuing Care Centre’s team welcomes you and your family back.

All of us at St. Joseph’s Continuing Care Centre, including the Clarion site, would like to thank you for your patience during these uncertain times and for abiding by all of the restrictions set in place for the safety of everyone. Your patience and understanding made this unfortunate time a lot more bearable. We understand how difficult it has been for you and your loved ones not being able to see each other.

We are excited to be slowly and carefully reintroducing visitors.  To ensure the ongoing safety of our patients, we are implementing parameters for visits, and guidelines that must be adhered to. We will continue to evaluate risk on a daily basis and may need to reinstate some of the restrictions on visitors, depending on this evolving situation. Essential Visitors and Care Partners will follow the same guidelines and restrictions as our staff to ensure the safety of patients, staff, and visitors. With that in mind, we ask that you please read this package in its entirety, sign each page, and abide by all guidelines that we have put in place.

We are excited to welcome you back to the facility!

Visiting Hours

clockVisiting hours are from 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. seven days per week.

All families and visitors are asked to be respectful of these hours as our patients may retire early and the noise levels affect their daily rest.
We ask that visitors also be respectful of therapy times and schedules.

Scent Free

Scent_Free_ENGLISH-croppedSt. Joseph’s Continuing Care Centre is a scent-free environment.

The purpose of this policy is to promote a healthier and more comfortable environment by eliminating the impact of scents and fragrances on individuals negatively affected by these. Patients, families and visitors should do their best to refrain from using perfumes and other scented products.

Smoke Free

As a healthcare facility, St. Joseph’s Continuing Care Centre (SJCCC) has an important role to play in promoting health and wellness in our community. We value a healthy and safe environment for our patients, visitors and all who work at SJCCC.

The Smoke Free Ontario Act, 2016, Ontario Regulation 48/06, and the City of Greater Sudbury By-law #2002-300 prohibit smoking tobacco in all enclosed workplaces and enclosed public places, as well as other designated places in Ontario, to protect workers and the public from the hazards of second-hand smoke.

Any individual found smoking, including e-cigarettes, on SJCCC property (includes the building, exterior grounds, parking lots, as well as inside cars) will be reminded of SJCCC’s smoking policy and will be asked to extinguish their product immediately. Greater Sudbury by-law officers could also fine any person found in contravention of the Smoke-Free Ontario Act as part of their ongoing enforcement of the Act. Fines can be up to $1000 for a first offence.
