These include intermediate resources and residential centres for seniors intermediate resources and non-institutional resources (NIR) depending on the agreement.

      All professional services offered by intermediate resources and non-institutional resources are delivered by CSSS-IUGS professionals (nurses, social workers, occupational therapists, etc.).
