Residents are represented by a group of family members and friends who meet every second Wednesday of each month.
Focused on promoting a high standard of care for our residents, the primary goals of the Family Council are advocacy, education and mutual support, leading to well-being and happiness.
Residents also have their representation via a group of residents that meets monthly with the primary objective to educate the residents on their rights and responsibilities. By communicating with the administration of Foyer des Pionniers Nursing Home on its viewpoint and needs, the Council is mindful as well on resolving issues and taking suggestions and ideas meant to improve lifestyle quality and evaluating the satisfaction of residents with nursing care and other services.
