Autumn is upon us and for many, the calendar is filled with obligations and plans. Time goes by so quickly!

For others – our elderly citizens in long-term care residences (CHSLD) – time ticks by more slowly. Life’s hectic pace has slowed to a gentle daily rhythm.

Surrounded by teams of devoted professionals, residents focus on the present moment and small shared joys.

Did you know that your donations are instrumental in those little, everyday pleasures?

Thanks to you, the white walls of CHSLD buildings are brightened each year with murals, each more vibrant than the last.

Bathrooms have been completely refurbished with Snoezelen technology, turning bath time into a relaxing, multi-sensory experience.

Your donations provide weekly entertainment to CHSLD residents in the form of a visit from Dr. Clown, a variety of zootherapy animals, or musical artists.

Your generosity has helped each of the six long-term care residences to set up in-house activities, such as woodworking, cooking or painting workshops, robotic animals and cuddly dolls, entertaining reading and games. These hobbies help many break free of their isolation.

It is your gift that enables us to add these little touches that make all the difference.

On behalf of our seniors in the six CHSLDs of Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Chambly, Saint- Césaire and Marieville, thank you for your generosity!
