Coronavirus Information

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.

General Visitation Information

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 robocalls to keep families/POAs informed of our current visitation status.  In addition, our current visitation policies are available below and on Facebook.

Current Visitation Policies

We are currently allowing indoor/outdoor visits by advance appointment only. Visitation times are available Monday-Friday, 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM, and are 45 minutes in length. Please contact Sheila at ext. 148 to schedule your visit.

Surgical masks must be on the face, covering the nose and mouth, and must be worn throughout the visit. Only two visitors at a time will be permitted, with no visitor under the age of three.

During off hours and on Sundays, guests will be advised to enter through the east entrance, where they will be screened and provided with a surgical mask. Please be patient during the off hours and Sundays, as many of our staff members are working with our elders.

Anyone that is not able to abide by these directions will be denied their visit.

Delivery Policies

Canton Christian Home has recently completed a study of resident deliveries. Due to current Covid 19 requirements, many residents are receiving perishable and non-perishable deliveries. In order to provide each resident with their deliveries, we have started a new update process.

All deliveries to a resident must be brought in to the north main entrance. All parties bringing in perishable or non-perishable items for the resident must enter the building and sign in the “resident delivery log”. This log will ask you to fill in the date, time, and your name. The facility staff will then complete Canton Christian Home’s portion of the log. The times for delivery are Monday-Friday from 8am through 6 pm. Deliveries after 6pm may not be delivered that day. Please make sure you are aware of this especially if the item is perishable. We are looking forward to enhancing services to our residents with this process improvement. Please let us know of any questions or concerns
