COVID-19 Update

Sorrentino’s Compassion House remains OPEN to women seeking accommodations in Edmonton while receiving cancer treatment.

Travelling far from home for cancer treatment is stressful enough; layer on the challenge of a global pandemic, and it’s almost too much to bear.

Sorrentino’s Compassion House offers affordable rates and a supportive community, all within a beautiful, comfortable home where you can remain healthy through treatment.

We’ve taken a best practices approach, with protocols based on direction from Alberta Health Services. These protocols are in place for your wellbeing and that of the other House guests and staff, as well as the patients and front-line workers you’ll encounter during appointments. To this end:

  • Only companions are allowed to accompany guests at the House; no outside visitors at this time.
  • Going out for dinner or groceries is allowed, however delivery or curbside pickup is recommended.
  • Going home on weekends is allowed, however limit your exposure to health risks as much as possible.

We continue to practice:

  • Enhanced cleaning protocols
  • Health screenings upon entry
  • Enforced use of masks and hand sanitizer
  • Physical distancing and capacity limits in common areas
  • Optional private transportation to-and-from appointments
  • Optional assistance with errands, such as groceries and prescriptions

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us directly. You can reach us by email or phone at 1-888-425-7474.
