as the old­est se­niors res­i­dence in the prov­ince of Que­bec, the Wales Home is proud to use tech­nol­ogy and be ac­cred­ited for op­ti­miz­ing qual­ity of care for se­niors. Since the fi­nal re­sults of the Gala Re­con­nais­sance Estrie in which the Wales Home was awarded the gold honor, the or­ga­ni­za­tion con­tin­ues to strive to­wards vic­tory!

The Rési­dence Wales Home / CHSLD Wales Inc. re­ceived the news to­day that they have been cho­sen as one of the pres­ti­gious fi­nal­ists in “LES PRIX D’EX­CEL­LENCE” safety of care and ser­vices cat­e­gory. This award of ex­cel­lence (and hon­ors) of this class will be awarded to in­sti­tu­tions that have de­vel­oped in­no­va­tive projects to im­prove the safety of care and ser­vices of­fered to the users they serve and is hosted by the Min­istère de la Santé et des Ser­vices so­ci­aux. The win­ners will be an­nounced by the Min­is­ter of Health and So­cial Ser­vices and Min­is­ter re­spon­si­ble for se­niors, Dr. Ré­jean Hébert, and the Min­is­ter of pub­lic health and the pro­tec­tion of youth, Mrs. Véronique Hivon. A cer­e­mony is sched­uled to be held in Oc­to­ber 2013. The Wales Home is very proud to be one of the se­lected four fi­nal­ists!

With the in­stal­la­tion of best prac­tices such as the Guardian An­gel Pro­gram, AeroS­cout’s Real-Time Lo­ca­tion Sys­tem, and the Ther­a­peu­tic Gar­den for be­gin­ning stages of Alzheimer’s, it is safe to say that

TheU­p­lands Cul­tural and Her­itage Cen­tre will be hold­ing a mu­si­cal fundraiser Fri­day Au­gust 16th at 7 pm. This year’s event of­fers Up­lands sup­port­ers mu­sic among the flow­ers: an out­door clas­si­cal cham­ber mu­sic con­cert in Up­land’s gar­den, fea­tur­ing the Es­tria reed trio per­form­ing all sorts of light clas­si­cal fare.

the Wales Home con­tin­ues to move in an up­ward pos­i­tive di­rec­tion. In­no­va­tive, ad­vance­ment, and de­vel­op­ment, are the three words that come to mind with th­ese cur­rent im­prove­ments. Th­ese in­vest­ments el­e­vate the stan­dard of care to a de­fin­i­tive pro­fes­sional level.

The Wales Home is a pri­vate not for profit or­ga­ni­za­tion that of­fers qual­ity care and ser­vices to se­niors. As the only bilin­gual res­i­dence and CHSLD in the Eastern Town­ships, the Wales Home pro­vides a en­vi­ron­ment to 200 se­niors who are com­pletely au­ton­o­mous to those re­quir­ing spe­cial­ized care, in­clud­ing Alzheimer’s pa­tients.
