Since we first learned of the COVID-19 pandemic, Canton Christian Home has worked closely with our local health department, Ohio Department of Health, our health care team, our residents, employees, families and friends to ensure that we are taking every necessary precaution to safeguard residents and staff.
Information about our progress is tracked by the Ohio Department of Health and reported weekly on the State of Ohio Coronavirus Website. The State of Ohio requires all-staff testing for its licensed nursing homes and residential care facilities. Canton Christian Home tests our entire workforce frequently to better protect our community.
Canton Christian Home is – first and foremost – concerned about the physical and mental health of every Canton Christian Home resident and staff member. Our COVID-19 infectious disease control team regularly reviews and, if necessary, amends our visitation policy for issues such as: (a) changes in recommendations of the Department of Health; (b) the possibility of an occurrence of active case(s) in Canton Christian Home; or (c) a significant change in transmission or positivity measurement for Stark County. As these factors can change weekly we may frequently need to amend our policy. Therefore, we have initiated robo-calls to keep families/ POA’s informed of our current visitation status. If you have questions please contact Canton Christian Home for the latest information.
At this time we welcome and encourage visits to Canton Christian Home, with just a few adjustments in place. For nursing and assisted living, we ask that you call Canton Christian Home at 330.456.0004 and ask for extension 148. Independent living visitors are welcome to visit between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m.
