Pet Visitors

pettherapy.jpgPets are part of the family and they are welcome to visit their loved ones at St. Joseph’s. But we ask visitors to please follow these basic rules:

Make sure your pet is clean and healthy.

Make sure your pet’s vaccinations are up-to- date.

Keep your pet on a leash.

Visiting pets cannot enter dining rooms or other food service areas, medication rooms or physiotherapy and occupational therapy treatment areas.

Please clean up after your pet and notify housekeeping if a more thorough cleaning is needed.


Be respectful of those residents, staff, volunteers, and visitors who have an allergy, phobia or do not like your pet as much as you do.

We recommend hand washing after contact with pets.
