A song in their hearts

L'Etoile - - IN OTHER WORDS -

Re­si­dents from a Vau­dreuil hou­sing unit had a mu­si­cal ho­li­day sea­son thanks to the for­ma­tion of a ho­li­day choir.

Li­liane Ther­rien and her fa­mi­ly brought the idea of a choir toMi­lieu de vies, a com­mit­tee in which they are in­vol­ved.

The choir al­lo­wed more than 30 re­si­dents, em­ployees and vo­lun­teers to ga­ther and so­cia­lize du­ring the ho­li­days, as well as to put the sea­son to li­ve­ly mu­sic thanks to night nurse Marie-Lise Gagnon’s pia­no playing.

Four such homes that are run by the Vau­dreuil-Sou­langes Health and So­cial Ser­vices net­work, aid people with spe­cial needs or tho­sew­ho have de­crea­sed au­to­no­my.
