IOOF RVH Partnership


The IOOF Seniors Homes is monitoring the health situation in China linked to the spread of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). At this time, we have implemented precautionary measures to reduce the risk of infection. We are actively screening ALL staff, and limiting visits to ESSENTIAL visits only. Essential meaning only visits that are necessary for compassionate reasons because of a serious health situation of a resident are permitted, pursuant to passing the screening process.




We are not allowing non-essential visits at this time. The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care has implemented these requirements because of the vulnerability of residents in Long-Term Care. We understand that connecting with your loved ones is incredibly important, however we ask for your understanding and dedication to the health and safety of all of our residents in this critical time. 


We are offering virtual visits and encouraging email communications with your loved ones.
For e-mail communication send an e-mail to: and our support staff will print and deliver your message to your loved one.

 Please note that there are dedicated days and times. Send us an email to book an appointment for a 10-15 minute virtual visit. 
We look forward to connecting you with your loved one.
