St. Mary’s General Hospital to temporarily manage Kaljas Home, working collaboratively with staff at the home

June 28th, 2021

St. Mary’s has been asked by the Region of Waterloo to temporarily manage Kaljas Home, working collaboratively with staff at the home. Kaljas Home is an assisted living residence for 15 people with complex medical conditions and the purpose is to address the immediate outbreak risks of COVID-19 to residents and staff.

Over the weekend, we established people to work onsite and provide management at the home. Our partners are collaborating with us on the response – Home and community services have supported with Personal Support Worker resources, a family physician to support assessments of residents and community paramedicine to support testing and delivering vaccines.
