Sur­vey seeks best way to help those hel­ping han­di­cap­ped

L'Etoile - - IN OTHER WORDS -

The re­gio­nal Health and So­cial Ser­vices Agen­cy wants to know how it can most af­fec­ti­ve­ly help those ca­ring for han­di­cap­ped people. The Centre de san­té et de ser­vices so­ciaux (CSSS) and its part­ners have laun­ched a sur­vey to de­ter­mine the needs for re­spite care, ac­com­pa­niment and emer­gen­cy sup­port ser­vices for pa­rents and care-gi­vers li­ving with a han­di­cap­ped per­son. The sur­vey will al­so help health of­fi­cials bet­ter un­ders­tand the rea­li­ty and obs­tacles fa­ced by those li­ving with or ca­ring for han­di­cap­ped people, with the aim of cor­rec­ting pro­blems and gaps in cur­rent ser­vices.

Those wan­ting to complete a sur­vey can do so on­line by going to: www.ta­ble­phipvs.com. The sur­vey can al­so be com­ple­ted by contac­ting Guy Fran­coeur at 450 455-0507 ext. 403. A pa­per co­py of the sur­vey, in­clu­ding a stam­ped self-ad­dres­sed en­ve­lope that will be mai­led to in­ter­es­ted par­ti­ci­pants, is in­clu­ded with the sur­vey so that you can re­turn it to us at no cost. The dead­line to complete the con­fi­den­tial sur­vey is March 16.
