Visitor Updates and Information
EFFECTIVE April 7th, 2023
Visitors to our Long-Term Care unit will no longer be required to test prior to entry. It is expected that visitors and care providers will self-screen themselves and refrain from visiting if they are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms or are feeling unwell.
The rules regarding mask use have not changed and everybody MUST WEAR A MASK in all common areas or if a resident has more than one visitor at a time. Masks and a list of self-screening questions will be provided in the atrium near the stairwell starting April 7th.
Ina Grafton is aware that these new changes take effect of March 31st, 2023, however we have extended our start until April 7th to ensure a smooth transition for everyone, and ask that you please cooperate while we work to implement these changes.
The safety of our residents and staff remain our most important priority, and we regularly review our Infection Prevention and Control practices to ensure that we are able to maintain a safe environment for everyone. Therefore, this protocol is subject to change.
It has been a challenging road over the last few years but we remain vigilant by following safety precautions and ministry directives to control the transmission of COVID-19. We ask all visitors and residents to remain vigilant with COVID-19 precautions such as handwashing and masking.
We thank you for your support to protect the safety of our residents.

Niagara Ina Grafton Gage Village is committed to provide materials to all that reflect AODA standards.
Welcome to Niagara Ina Grafton Gage Village! As a not-for-profit, charitable organization and provider of services to seniors in the Niagara Region for over 60 years, Niagara Ina Grafton Gage Village now encompasses two sites – St. Catharines and Niagara-on-the-Lake. Operating since 1959, the Niagara Ina Grafton Gage Village site sits on 15 acres of well-manicured grounds and is located on Linwell Road in the north end of St. Catharines. The Niagara-on-the-Lake site, known as Stone Road Village, opened in 2012 and is located on Hunter Road at the corner of Niagara Stone Road. Mature trees dot the 5 acre property, providing a peaceful country setting. It is just five minutes from the heart of Niagara‑on‑the Lake with easy access to recreational trails and the Niagara Parkway.
Facilities at these two sites house over 500 seniors. At Niagara Ina Grafton Gage Village, seniors live either in rental or rent-geared-to-income apartments, life lease bungalows or apartments, bedsitter rooms, or long-term care (nursing home). At Stone Road Village, life lease apartments are available for active seniors.
Niagara Ina Grafton Gage Village is one of the largest providers of services for seniors in Ontario. Several levels of care are provided at the St. Catharines site. As a member of AdvantAge Ontario (formerly OANHSS – Ontario Association of Non-Profit Homes and Services for Seniors), ONPHA (Ontario Non-Profit Housing Association), and OCSA (Ontario Community Support Association), these groups advocate for seniors and lobby the government on our behalf. The Village is dedicated to fostering quality of life for seniors and to meeting standards mandated by the MOHLTC (Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care). We believe that customer service and effective communication are essential for success. We are continually looking at opportunities for growth and improvement.
