On June 9th the Government of Ontario’s directives officially changed and hugs are now allowed between fully vaccinated Residents and Essential Caregivers!

We were thrilled to host Global News at Belmont House to capture the special moment between Jill Vanderkooy and her mother, Joan. You can watch the Global News report here and another touching video of their first hug after a long 14 months here.

“There’s a long life ahead of you and it’s going to be beautiful, as long as you keep loving and hugging each other.”
