Modified Visitor Restrictions in Effect.
Monday, March 16, 2020
As directed by the Department of Health, Alderwood is restricting access of visitors due to COVID-19 or Corona Virus. We are asking visitors to abstain from visiting our facility until further notice. We will be continuing to monitor the ongoing situation and will update family, staff, volunteers, contractors and visitors as we receive new information.
We appreciate your help in protecting the residents and staff of Alderwood Rest Home.
UPDATE Thursday March 26, 2020
While there are no cases of Covid-19 at Alderwood, it was decided to close the households at this time as a precaution. This has allowed us to plan the closure and work with staff on small concerns that arise as a result of the closures such as restlessness, boredom and loneliness.

Those interested in Skyping with their loved ones are asked to connect with the Recreation Department (902.295-2644 ext.226) to set a time and date and for Alderwood’s profile name. We have an iPad with Skype access which we are willing to share with our residents so that they can chat and see their families.
