Services for relatives

La maison Mathieu-Froment-Savoie offers services to patients’ relatives:

During the stay, we:

  • Provide support to family members and assist them in their commitment to the care the patient requires.
  • Accompany them during the last moments of life by offering moral, emotional and spiritual support.

Following the death

  • We offer a professional support service in bereavement, through a self-help group.
  • Individuals who wish may be referred to bereavement accompaniment services closer to home.

Pets

Contact with pets can have a therapeutic effect on residents. In fact, La maison offers a zoo therapy program, recognizing that pets can bring joy to residents and even to staff members. Admittance is permitted only to dogs and cats as long as they are immunized. To reduce risk of infection, washing hands before and after handling the animal is of the utmost importance. The pet must be well groomed, behaved, on leash all the time or in a cage, and must be well trained on areas where to relieve one self. Animals must be kept close to their owners all the time. Owners must clean any urine or fecal matters immediately, notify staff members of any damage to furniture or injury to a resident. Owners are responsible for the behaviour of their animal at all time.

If the animal is a health threat or his behaviour is unacceptable, the owner will be asked to leave the premises immediately with the animal.

Alcohol

It is permitted to consume alcoholic beverages in a responsible manner if there is no contraindication by the treating physician for medical reasons. Residents and families consuming alcohol must not be disturbing to others. These privileges will be reassessed if incidents occur. Alcoholic beverages are provided by the residents or their families.

Smoking

It is forbidden to smoke inside La maison and on the patio. Residents and visitors are permitted to smoke in the exterior gazebo built for this purpose. Residents who want to smoke must be accompanied at all time by a staff member, volunteer or visitor.

For safety reasons, all smoking items must be remitted to the medical staff when returning to the rooms. Medical staff may remove these items if they can present a safety risk.

Illegal Drugs

It is strictly forbidden to carry or consume illegal drugs.

Pastoral Care

Families can communicate with a priest of their choice. La maison can also provide the name of a priest to visit the residents and administer in unction to the unwell.

Funeral Prearrangements

Families are encouraged to make funeral prearrangements for their loved one and to inform the staff on the choice of funeral home. After the family leaves the premises, La maison will communicate with the chosen funeral home. Families are welcome to take as much time as necessary after the passing of the loved one but the body cannot be kept more than 18 hours after death has been confirmed.
