Auseful guide produced by the Memphremagog CLD, Guide de l’aidant, is being redistributed. Written in French, the guide is a tool to help people who are experiencing difficulties related to a loss of employment. “In the beginning, the Guide was created to answer a need that surfaced after many jobs were lost in the region. However, this document can be used in many circumstances to help those suffering difficulties. The Table de developpement social de Memphremagog wants to make it a permanent tool, useful to the entire population,” commented Monique Corbeil, the director of the CSSSM Memphremagog.
To receive a copy of the Guide call the CSSSM at 819 843-2572 (dial 0 and ask for “accueil social”) or download an electronic version from the CSSS Memphremagog’s website.
