Visiting a patient

Visiting hours are from 10 a.m. to 8:50 p.m. daily. Visitors are encouraged to visit with the patient's consent and children are welcome with adult supervision.

Visitors are asked to contact the program/social worker prior visiting. On some occasions, patients may refuse to meet with visitors, even though they may have travelled a considerable distance. When this occurs, we respect the decision of the patient and we will provide support where appropriate. Waypoint may also restrict visiting hours for clinical or security reasons.
