We are licenced through the RHRA (Retirement Homes Regulatory Authority). Their role is to monitor the compliance of retirement homes under the Acts and Regulations. Our goal is to offer you a place where you can continue your daily activities, make new friends and enjoy excellent care. The secret to a long happy life!
We offer our residents balanced menus created and implemented by our Nutrition Manager, Hélène Lauzon. Hélène is recognized and certified by the Canadian Society of Nutrition Management (CSNM). Our menus, established over a 3-week cycle, are based on the Canadian Food Guide while considering the requirements of our residents, with the intention always to serve you better. Meetings with our resident’s comity take place every 6 months. We are always looking for feedback, new ideas and suggestions. We serve 3 meals a day as well as snacks throughout the day. Eating 6 small meals a day helps people with diabetes control their blood sugar levels. Our Summer Menu offers lighter meals, including sandwiches, salads, etc … while our Winter Menu features more consistent dishes such as stew, different pasta choices, etc … All menus correspond to nutritional requirements, while offering a wide variety and a colorful presentation!
Sometimes it is difficult to find a goal or even a source of motivation. There is evidence that physical activities and mental exercises prevent or soothe depression and reduce the effects of Alzheimer’s. Our activities allow residents to build new friendships while having fun. Our Activities Coordinator, Joanne Fournier’s goal is to demonstrate new and interesting techniques to encourage our residents to face new challenges, in a safe and family orientated atmosphere.
Our mission is to help maintain our resident’s social lives and to improve their quality of life. We encourage all residents to partake regardless of physical limitations. Talking and interacting with others is essential to everyone’s well-being. Physical activity brings health benefits, safeguarding functional ability and decreasing the risk of chronic disease.
Our Coordinator, in collaboration with the Residents’ Comity, plan a variety of activities from morning to evening, encouraging residents to participate in programs that meet their interests.
Here are a few examples :
Cards and board games
Popcorn and movie night
Special outings (various stores, Sugar Bush, St-Hubert, etc.…)
At the start of the month a copy of the Activities Calendar is put up in the halls, given to residents, sent to families via email and posted on our Facebook page.
