We will also ask the resident to sign admission and consent to treatment forms.

The GDECC counts one 15 bed unit able to receive people from the community experiencing loss of autonomy, in order to offer respite to the caregivers or a convalescence following hospitalization. The eligible people are entitled to a maximum stay of eight weeks per year. The people in temporary housing receive care and services adapted to their individual needs.
To learn more on this service, contact your neighbourhood CSSS who will inform you of your modalities of access and related costs of temporary housing.
We suggest to bring only clothing that is comfortable and easy to maintain. Washable and iron free clothing are particularly indicated since the Centre offers washing and clothing care services for the residents’ basic personal clothing. Each piece of clothing must be dutifully identified to the resident’s name. The establishment cannot be held responsible for lost, damaged or stolen items and clothing.
