Due to an increase in cases of COVID on the 5th floor, the unit is closed for an undetermined period of time.

Residents are confined to the floor. To limit moving residents in the facility.

Meals will be taken on the floor.

Activities are suspended.

Visitors and staff members must wear masks at all times.

Hand washing must be reinforced.

Thank you for your cooperation,

The management

During this festive period when gatherings are frequent, we ask that you pay special attention to the guidelines below.


  •  If you have symptoms of an infection or illness, avoid visiting your loved one.
  • Minimize the number of visitors.
  • Practice hand hygiene when arriving, entering, and exiting the room.
  • Wearing a mask is mandatory in our CHSLD.
  • Avoid visiting your loved one if:
  • You have symptoms of respiratory infections or gastroenteritis.
  • You are going to a unit under high surveillance or in an outbreak of a respiratory infection;
  • If an outbreak is ongoing in the CHSLD, additional instructions may apply.
  • If your loved one is in isolation, follow the measures in place and don’t hesitate to ask the care teams for more information.
  • If you are considering taking your loved one out of the establishment, specifically if they are staying on an outbreak unit, please contact the nurses on the unit for specific instructions.


We will vaccinate our residents next week (Monday, October 23rd) for flu and COVID-19 vaccines.

If you did not have a chance to sign the consent form, you can authorize the vaccination by phone with the nurse.

You can expect our residents to be a little under the weather next Monday; don’t be alarmed.

Fever and fatigue are common side effects of both vaccines.

There is no counter indication to administrate both vaccines at the same time.

You can get more information on the government’s site

Thank you for your collaboration

Unfortunately, we must announce the return of the wearing of masks inside the C.H.S.L.D. Château Westmount.
The number of respiratory virus cases is on the rise in the metropolitan area, including COVID-19 cases, and the fact that residents have not yet received their vaccines forces us to make this decision for their protection.
We apologize for the inconvenience but are sure this measure will not drag on in time. At the same time, we recommend that visitors and caregivers receive their flu shots.
We would also like to remind you that if you have symptoms of breathing problems such as:
  • Sore throat
  • Cough
  • Runny nose
  • Ear pain
Or, nausea or vomiting, you can not visit the center.
We ask that you abstain for a few days to protect our residents and employees.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation

Following the measures announced by the « Ministère de la Santé et des services sociaux », we inform you that the wearing of protective masks will no longer be mandatory.

People who have flu-like symptoms AND have tested negative for COVID-19 will, after a 5-day no-visit period (to ensure no other respiratory virus can be transmitted to our residents), will be required to wear the mask for the duration of their symptoms.

As for the lobby’s dining room, it will be possible for all to buy a meal to eat with their loved ones starting next Tuesday, April 11th. We need time to reconfigure the dining room and this cannot be conducted over the long weekend.

As of today, our staff will be happy to welcome you with their smile.

Although the outbreak on the 3rd floor is ending soon, we have had several cases spread throughout the facility. Considering this situation, again this year, we must maintain the application of infection control measures and require visitors to wear masks at all times.

This means that we cannot agree to the request of some families and allow parties at the Penthouse. Nor can we allow families to bring a meal and share it with our residents.

We are extremely sorry for the grief this may cause, but we must align our measures with public health recommendations, ministerial directives, and measures in place in the other C.H.S.L.D. in the territory of the CIUSSS West-Central Montreal.

Hoping that next year will see a more normal holiday season.

We remind everyone that if you experience symptoms of flu, cold, gastrointestinal problems, or COVID-19, you must stay home and not show up at the Château.

Thank you and have a happy holiday season.

We tested the entire floor on Tuesday the 22nd and detected only 1 new case.

Currently, none of the affected residents have severe symptoms. Two of the residents have even completed their isolation period.

Today we detected 1 case on the 5th floor, but the vector of contamination has been identified. It was a visitor. There will therefore be no further measures deployed to the 5th if no other resident has symptoms.

We remind you of the importance of wearing the mask AT ALL TIMES, and that it must cover the mouth and the nose.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Number of active cases Number of cases recovered
3rd 6 2
5th 1 0

We currently have 2 cases of COVID-19 on the 3rd floor. Both residents are doing well, but since it is impossible to determine how the two residents contracted the virus, we will, in collaboration with the CIUSSS and the IBD team, screen all residents and employees on the 3rd floor.

While waiting for the results, we ask residents not to leave the 3rd and to wear a mask when they leave their rooms.

Visits are still allowed on the floor and even for affected residents, we will ask visitors in the latter cases to put on personal protective equipment.

We will keep you informed as the situation evolves.

Thank you for your cooperation.

We currently have an outbreak of gastroenteritis in 3 of the 4 living environments.

We, therefore, ask visitors to limit their presence in the establishment for a few days.

If you have any of the following symptoms, you cannot come to Château Westmount:

  • Fever
  • Nausea
  • Vomit
  • Diarrhea
  • Abdominal cramps

Group activities are suspended until the end of the outbreak.

We take this opportunity to remind everyone that only soap and water are effective for hand washing in the case of gastroenteritis.

The families of symptomatic residents will be contacted by Château staff.

Thank you for your cooperation.
