The day centre provides group prevention and therapy activities for seniors and adults with a loss of autonomy.
The activities are designed to help users maintain their physical, cognitive and social skills, stay healthy, and remain autonomous enough to stay at home. The day centre also helps combat loneliness and isolation and provides respite to caregivers.
People interested in attending a day centre must live at home, show signs of a loss of autonomy, and be willing to participate in group activities.
The activities are chosen based on participants’ needs and the services available.
The groups are made up of 10-30 people and take part in various activities:
- exercise classes,
- physical games,
- information, prevention and craft workshops,
- brain games.
Special group exercise classes are available for people with a physical disability (e.g., Parkinson’s, arthritis, etc.). Respite groups are also offered for caregivers.
|Monday to Friday||10 a.m. to 2:45 p.m.|
The aim of palliative care is to manage symptoms and provide physical and emotional comfort to users who are nearing the end of their life.

Institution-based palliative care
Palliative care is provided to people with an end-stage chronic disease or cancer at various resources and facilities on the territory of the CISSS de la Montérégie-Centre.
They are intended to ensure, in compliance with the needs of the patient and their family, a relief of pain and symptoms.
Sick people and their loved ones can rely on the listening and support of a team of specific expertise, regardless of the unit within which they are housed or hospitalized.
Following the confirmation of a prognosis from a doctor, a worker (social worker, nurse, etc.), you will be supported in the process.
