“This seniors and alternative residence will put 120 places at the availability ot the population of the region, precisely 96 places for adults and 24 accommodations for adults having special needs,” informed Health and Social Services Minister Christian Dube, Chateauguay MNA MarieChantal Chasse, and Marguerite Blais, the minister responsible for seniors and caregivers close to residents.
“This new type of shelter will remind one more of a home and will favour human contacts as well as a more active lifestyle thanks to access to outdoor spaces and indoor installations better adapted to the needs of residents and their close relations/caregivers,” they explained.
The project consists of a $37 million investment. The establishment is due to open its doors in 2022.
