Pro­gram launched

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Vic­to­ria Vanier

Thanksto the lo­cal FADOQ, Estrie re­gion, se­niors and their fam­i­lies can count on the

a huge pro­gram that fo­cusses on the ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the qual­ity of life in pri­vate se­niors res­i­dences. It is a pro­gram that al­lows peo­ple to eval­u­ate 26 rec­og­nized norms and mea­sure the sat­is­fac­tion of res­i­dents based on their ex­pe­ri­ences.

“In our opin­ion, be­cause of the big va­ri­ety of se­niors res­i­dences, the qual­ity of life can vary con­sid­er­ably from one res­i­dence to an­other,” ex­plained Re­jean Audet, pres­i­dent of FADOQ Estrie. “It is there­fore im­per­a­tive to look into the qual­ity of the liv­ing en­vi­ron­ment, the ser­vices of­fered, as well as the level of sat­is­fac­tion of those liv­ing there. Be­sides, the Estrie re­gion has more than 110 es­tab­lish­ments of dif­fer­ent sizes with a wide di­ver­sity in terms of the ser­vices of­fered. And so it be­comes more and more dif­fi­cult for se­niors and their fam­i­lies to choose. The

re­sponds to this need for in­for­ma­tion.”

Com­pli­men­tary to government cer­ti­fi­ca­tion, the pro­gram is fi­nanced by the health and so­cial ser­vices min­istry.
