The safety of our residents is a priority in our residences and the following statement underlines the importance we place on this: « The safety of our residents first and foremost. » For the protection of our residents, each of our residences includes the following services and features:
call bells: in each unit (apartment or room), a communication system allows residents to call for help, while the call bell alerts staff in case of emergency and a need for immediate assistance.
smoke detectors and sprinklers: our two residences have smoke detectors, sprinkler systems, fire extinguishers and fire doors throughout the buildings, all in accordance with the standards of the Régie du bâtiment du Québec (RBQ). Each unit is also equipped with a fire alarm panel with the latest technology, with a communication system connected directly to the municipal fire department, which in an emergency allows for remote control and a more rapid intervention of firefighters.
evacuation plan: we have an evacuation plan in case of emergency. A copy of the plan can be found on each floor near the elevators.
nursing home healthcare unit (CHSLD): these units are secure. Wandering off or other unauthorized exits are very rare since it takes an access code to be able to exit.
insurance: we assume the cost of liability insurance, but each resident must pay the cost of insuring their own personal property.
