St. Vincent's: Langara visiting information

Family — defined as those closest to you — play an important role in a patient’s and resident’s well-being. Families and close friends are welcome to visit at any time. Providence Health Care does not restrict visiting hours. Of course, you must follow a few guidelines:

  • Sick people need rest. You can visit often, but please respect your loved ones wishes for privacy or rest.
  • Children under 14 must be under adult supervision (from someone other than the resident) at all times.
  • Visiting may be restricted to protect the privacy and rights of other residents and clients.
  • Your visit may be interrupted by staff to provide resident or client care.
  • If you feel unwell, have an infection, flu-like or respiratory symptoms, or any sort of communicable disease, or have recently been in contact with anyone with these symptoms, we encourage you to stay at home until you’re well again.
  • We may not have the space to accommodate a large number of family members, but we’ll try our best.

If you need more information – just ask so we can help create the best care experience overall.
