Welcome residents and visitors

Here is useful information related to Caton Merchant House for our current residents, their families, and visitors.

Visitor access

Visitors are welcome at any time. The front door is locked from 8 p.m. until 7 a.m. If you plan to be out longer than 8 p.m. or are expecting late visitors, please advise someone at the first floor nursing station. If someone visits you unexpectedly between the hours of 8 p.m. and 7 a.m., there is an intercom located on the right side of the foyer. A nursing assistant will let your visitor in after hours if the intercom is used. Also, if you frequently have guests who stay late or come in late, please inform the admissions director so your family can be issued an access key fob. The fob will enable them access to one door at any time (One fob with access to one door will be given per family). You can also call 703-335-8497 if you need access to the building after the door is locked.

Sign in, sign out

If you are leaving the building for any reason (other than outings with the facility), please sign out at the podium by the front door and sign in when you return. All visitors are requested to sign in and out when they enter and leave the building so the staff knows who is in the building in the event of an emergency.
