Other Housing Resources

In order to provide a greater number of alternatives to lodge persons with significant loss of autonomy, the CSSS-IUGS has contractually enlisted various private resources. These include intermediate resources and non-institutional resources (NIR).

 

  • Services offered
    • Intermediate resources and non-institutional resources (NIR) help people suffering from significant cognitive impairment and elders with significant physical disabilities, who, as a result of their particular condition, either find it difficult to live at home or can no longer do so, to enjoy a living environment that is adapted to their needs and to benefit from help and support services.

      All professional services offered by intermediate resources and non-institutional resources (NIR) are provided by CSSS-IUGS professionals (nurses, social workers, occupational therapists, etc.). Other services (beneficiary attendant services, maintenance services, etc.) are provided by the staff at the intermediate resources and NIR in accordance with the intervention plan established with the CSSS-IUGS team.

  • Clientele
    • There are currently 113 places available for persons suffering from cognitive impairment, 51 places for persons with physical disabilities, and 11 places for seniors who have specific needs, usually resulting from social adaptation problems (e.g., alcoholism, social protection, etc.), and who require a structured environment.

      Three places in intermediate resources are available to provide emergency respite services to family caregivers.

  • How to access these services
    • All requests to access residential services must be made by a professional. Those requests are then evaluated by the CSSS-IUGS committee which oversees the mechanisms of access to residential services.
