Family caregivers we have supported testify to our services

At Visavie, we are known for our human approach and for the quality of our home care and residence search services.

As a testimony to this, we have testimonials from family caregivers whom we have supported in caring for their loved one.


I would like to express my great satisfaction with the services offered by Ms. Isabelle Poulin of Visavie.

I had been trying to find a residence for several weeks without success. I was discouraged, I felt lost and alone in the administrative machinery, delays and constraints related to the search for an establishment for my mother. She quickly heard and understood my needs. She quickly put us in touch with the ideal residence for my mother. She accompanied me in a pleasant and efficient manner throughout the entire process of searching and signing the lease.

In less than a week, everything was settled. Her help was invaluable. She saved me a lot of trouble and I am very grateful to her. My mother is now living in her new home and is very happy. A big thank you Isabelle.

Good morning Kim! I’m here to let you know that my father moved into the residence on Tuesday. Everything went very well. He had a good night’s sleep and is having fun with the staff! During the whole process we involved him as much as possible and the result is positive. He has gradually integrated his new reality and everything is going smoothly even if emotions are naturally present! We want to thank you for your support and your help, your involvement was significant for us and reassuring. Thanks to you we found the perfect home! Once again, a huge thank you 🙏

— A happy family (07/10/21)

A few companies specializing in finding a residence for seniors were suggested to me by my father’s hospital. The positive comments found on the Internet convinced me to choose Visavie. I would like to highlight the remarkable work of Mrs. Christine Vyboh, who was most appreciated at a time when we had to find a residence quickly in Montreal. Her professionalism, compassion and commitment ensured that in less than two weeks my father was able to find housing and residential services that met his needs in every way. I thank and highly recommend Visavie and Ms. Vyboh.

— A. Bourdages (01/10/21)


We are happy with your services. Visavie have really advised us to find the best residence for our mom. Marie-Helene Laplante is very kind, professional and proactive.

We always had answers to our questions. Thank you very much for everything. This is the second time we have dealt with your organization and always such a good service.

Thank you so much for your service!

— Caroline and François (22/09/21)


I am writing to let you know about our experience with your company but more specifically with the exceptional service we had with Mrs. Lina Ali.
My husband’s father was at a stage in his life where he had to move for his own good, following some difficult experiences in recent years.
We called on Visavie, who was advised by a nurse who was following Maurice, to find THE perfect home for him.
By her description and the bright eyes in her picture, our choice was Lina.
What a gem this woman💖. From our very first contact, she made us feel very comfortable and responsive. Asking multiple questions about his tastes and personality, she was able to quickly find the residence that would make him happy to live there: THE AUBADE RESIDENCE. When we visited it, it was love at first sight for all of us: a beautiful, clean and well-maintained apartment, with hobbies and activities that matched his tastes exactly, and +++.
Lina is a very caring woman, she guided us and helped us a lot in the whole process from A to Z. She helped us with the whole process from A to Z, from nice conversations to check up on us, to accompanying us with the signing of the lease, down to the smallest details. She saw to everything 😀 Her dedication is exceptional, she was always available to answer all our questions and made the necessary steps to have the answers. This wonderful woman has a huge heart and is very engaging. 🤗 I highly recommend her to everyone!!!

A big BRAVO and THANK YOU to Vis a Vie, for allowing people, families to help and support them to find the right home for our loved ones.
Again THANKS A THOUSAND to you and to our dear Lina! 😍
Have a lovely day,

— Sophie L. (17/09/21)


We would like to tell you what a great service we received and how precious Karine’s help was for us.

My husband will be signing the lease today at the Résidence L’Artisan in St-Eustache for his mother who, unfortunately, went from a 4 to an 8 on the SMAF evaluation in a few months.

We had to find a residence adapted to her new needs very quickly and all this would not have been possible without the experience and knowledge of Karine Gauthier.

From the beginning she not only supported us professionally but also morally in order to find the best place for my mother-in-law.

She accompanied us in all the necessary and sometimes difficult steps. She was available and reassuring at every step.
She knows her job very well, which is all about the human side.

We are very grateful to Visavie for offering such a service and of course to Karine.

Thank you for everything.

— Josette and Normand (10/09/21)

Dear Ladies,

I would like to express my gratitude for the success in the search for an apartment that suits my situation.

You knew how to reassure me and you showed a professionalism and an implication in this research which calmed me.

I would like to thank you for all your work and I will not fail to recommend your professional qualities to my friends and family,

I wish you, Janique Duguay and Josée Reid, a good continuation and a lot of success in your next research.

— Lise L. (03/09/21)

Dear Lina,

It is a privilege to meet someone like you. A woman of heart first, a business woman, a charming and endearing woman, you bring out the best in us.

Thank you for your listening skills, your professionalism, your optimism. I am so happy to be living in Elogia. You predicted it from the first meeting and you were right.

I give you a big hug and we will definitely meet again. I will recommend you as soon as I get a chance.

— Madeleine R. (27/08/21)


I would like to thank Mrs. Sylvie Piacente for the services rendered so that my 90 year old mother could have a residence adapted to her needs.

Ms. Piacente worked very hard to find a residence in a very short time. She really met all our expectations.

My mother is now at Domaine des Forges in Ste-Rose, Laval. The food is excellent. She is very well. She has been there since July 12.

I hope that this message will reach the person concerned and I wish her to continue to render these so precious services, which for us is of major use.

Thank you again.

— Nicole A (19/08/21)

Mariette called us to tell us about her great experience with our advisor Kim Kendall. Completely satisfied with the new home our counsellor selected for her, Mariette also mentioned that Kim was very supportive of her and that the service provided was exceptional.

Here are some words from Mariette about her new home:

“I got out of hell and got into heaven! I open my patio door three steps and I’m in the spa and pool next door! My home is so big I walk a lot and it’s brand new. Thank God, I never thought I would end my days here at Les Bâtisseurs residence in Trois-Rivières West.”

— Mariette G (13/08/21)


I am writing to let you know of the exceptional service we received from Sylvie in our need for information and exploration of an appropriate and relevant residence for our mother.

The situation was unique in some ways. Sylvie was extremely attentive to our needs and spent a lot of time talking mainly with the manager but also with the caregiver. She also carefully explored possible solutions and came to a consensus with everyone that the best thing to do was perhaps…to do nothing!

Obviously, Sylvie Piacente is very professional and thinks only, first and foremost, of the well-being of the recipient before anything else.

We thank her greatly for her precious time, her support and her judicious advice. Not only will we return to her if the situation deteriorates but I have already given her as a reference to people around me.

Once again a big thank you!

— Mario P (06/08/21)

Hello Marie-Josée,

First of all, I would like to personally thank you for all the work you have done in the preparation and transfer of information so far. My mother, Cindy and I are very happy with the way things have gone. This was all a bit of a blank slate for us. So your help has been so valuable. A huge thank you!

After our 3 visits yesterday to the different Residences, we went to discuss all of this with my mother and she felt very reassured by everything we told her. We showed her the different pictures taken at the 3 locations and discussed the different options for each. Our choice was Residence Ste-Rose in Laval. The new look of the facility and the freedom the residents have inside made the difference. The fact that it was easy for my mother to get there using St-Martin and Industrial Boulevards also helped. The other two residences were good choices as well, but Residence Ste-Rose clearly stood out for us.

Thanks again for everything! 😊

— Nicolas R (30/07/21)

Hello Marie,

Although I am late in doing this, I want to thank you so much for easing my mother’s difficult transition to a residence with services. Please know that we appreciate the fact that you have been attentive and patient with all of us.

Our mom seems to be very satisfied and happy at the Anjou-sur-le-lac residence. The CLSC is providing services that comfort her.

Once again, thank you very much!

— Angiola Annunzii, Béatrice et Marie Louise Danese (23/07/21)

A very professional team, a human contact and kindness every day. The caregiver who takes care of my dad is very well trained and kind. It is difficult to get up or to do everyday things. But she helps him with a lot of patience and kindness. She always listens to his needs and is very reactive to our remarks and present whatever the difficulty is. Thank you a thousand times!

— Sarah C. (30/06/21)

I would like to thank you for all the support you have given us and for the precious advice you have given us throughout our process. Without your intervention, we would not have been able to find the right place and formula for our parents. You have been attentive to our needs, which have evolved over the past few months, and my sisters and I are sincerely grateful for that. Thank you also for your availability and for your human warmth. You knew how to reassure us in moments of doubt. We are convinced that Les Richeloises is the right choice and that my parents will find peace and security in a pleasant and inspiring place. If you need additional information, please do not hesitate to contact me. Good luck! Sincerely,

— Mimi C. (30/06/21)

After several disappointing experiences, we appreciated Visavie’s responsiveness and professionalism.

This allowed us to find a perfect and quick solution to help our mother at her home in March 2021. Amélie was very appreciated by our mother, which was not a easy task.

It allowed her to re-socialize as she had been alone for years and she was happy to be able to converse during her dinner. For us, it was also reassuring!

Once again, a big thank you to the team and the people in charge of Visavie.

— Antoinette T.(06/30/21)


I would like to express my gratitude and satisfaction for the services rendered by Mrs. Marie-Hélène Laplante over the past few weeks. My father having been hospitalized on May 3rd and having been certified as non-autonomous by the hospital doctor, we had to take steps to relocate him to a private residence in a care unit with 24/7 assistance from nursing staff and attendants. In addition, my mother was autonomous but wanted to be relocated near my father in an apartment for autonomous people, so we had to find a residence that would allow them to be grouped together in the same building complex.

Marie-Hélène was an excellent counsellor who demonstrated many of the qualities required for this type of work: excellent listening skills, a great deal of empathy, great availability (during the day and evening, on weekdays and even on weekends), great knowledge of the existing residences in the Trois-Rivières area, coordination of reservations for visits, an effective interface with the people in charge of the residences to obtain answers to our questions, and excellent support from the beginning to the end of the search process until the signing of the leases for my two parents at Terrasses Dominicaines.
Aware of our priority to act quickly, she proved to be an outstanding partner in the mission we had given ourselves.

On behalf of my brother and my parents, I would like to thank Marie-Hélène for her assistance and all the steps she took on our behalf.
We will always be happy to recommend Visavie in general and Marie-Hélène in particular to our families and friends who would like assistance in finding a residence adapted to their needs.

Best regards,

— Daniel D. (06/25/21)

Hello Mr. Sirois,

I would like to take a few minutes to tell you how much of a difference Ms. Josée Reid made in the relocation file of my mother, Diane B. My mother was hospitalized from December 30th to May 4th. A long hospitalization with many changes in the various diagnoses led Ms. Reid to review my mother’s needs more than once and to find a place for her that suited her needs, her age (my mother is 69) and her financial means. Ms. Reid is very professional and truly cares about her clients’ needs. In this difficult time of the pandemic, this support was more than welcome.

Today, my mother is happy. She is making friends in her new living environment, at the Terrebonne Selection, and is regaining some of her independence. Nothing but positive things! This is why I am taking my hat off to Mrs. Reid today for the quality of her service and for her concern for the well-being of people.

Bravo to Visavie and above all, a big thank you to Mrs. Reid!

— Geneviève L. (06/18/21)


I am writing to thank you very sincerely for the help you have given us through Mrs. Lise Dupuis. I don’t know what we would have done without her. From the moment she contacted me (I had left a message, a friend having told me about your services), she was on our case 24 hours a day, working tirelessly to understand our situation and find a residence.

Our case was complicated as my parents were in NB and had to move near Ste Julie, and on top of that, my father’s health had been significantly affected, and it was very difficult to get the facts. In less than two weeks, she found us a residence where my parents are very comfortable.

I have nothing but compliments and sincere thanks!
Thank you !!!!

— Nicole T. (06/11/21)

My aging parents were ready for the next phase of their lives – selling their home and moving into a retirement residence.

Mariette accompanied us throughout the whole process. She met my parents (online during COVID) to get an appreciation of their needs/wants, researched and identified residences that met these needs/wants and organized onsite visits for us (where possible).

Understandably, this has also been a stressful journey for my parents – letting go of everything that is familiar to them to move towards the unknown – second guessing themselves (were they making the right decision?). Even when my parents were wavering there was never any pressure on Mariette’s part. Rather she followed my parents’ lead. Their well-being was more important to her than the outcome. She was always patient and reassuring.

I spoke with my parents today. They had just gotten the keys to their new apartment in the retirement residence and are so very excited about this new beginning in their lives.

Thank you Mariette for the positive experience. You have been a true blessing. It’s been a joy having you by our side knowing that you had our back.

— Helene H. (06/04/21)

Hello Marie-Josée,

Thank you so much for the help, support and dedication you have shown to us. You may not know how it feels to know you are there when we do our research.

Keep up the good work, keep your human approach. I can’t be the only one who is grateful to have you in her life!

Thank you for everything.

— Anne (05/28/21)

Hello Karine! I just spoke with my dad and my grandmother moved, everything went really well. It is a great relief for everyone and especially for my dad who can look ahead and take care of him. I want to thank you for your help and your support, you made all the difference in this process. You are truly an exceptional, human and dedicated person ❤️ Thank you for everything!

— Catherine V. (05/21/21)


I work as an intervention counsellor in social housing, and Lina was an extremely valuable asset to have in the search for a retirement home for one of my clients.

The normally stressful process of sorting through potential residences was a breeze with Lina guiding us through every step of the way. Her kind and caring attitude towards us really made us feel like she was wanting the best for my client, and put us both at ease.

I have a high regard for her and her work, and would recommend her to anyone who similarly is looking in to finding a retirement home.

Best regards,
Marisa S.

— Marisa S. (05/14/21)

Hello Mr Sirois,

I just wanted to thank you again for accommodating us so quickly with the day changes for my mother. We really appreciate the great service Visavie is providing my mother, and we are especially thankful for Karla. I cannot express how much relief it gives us to know that my mother is so well taken care of and what a great and reliable company Visavie is.

I would definitely recommend your services to anyone looking for home care for their loved ones. Once again thank you so much for everything.

— Franca E. (05/07/21)

Dear Mrs. Lefebvre,

By receiving this latest newsletter with news of you and to know that you are still activw active at Visavie, I can not help but think of all your invaluable help, your support, your incredible kindness and especially your humanity out of this world during the placement of our mother in Mascouche, in 2016.

My sister and I can never forget you. You are a rare gem!

I wish you health and good continuity in these difficult times because you are surely still the ray of sunshine and hope of many families.

— Marie-Josée (04/30/21)


I contacted your organization for assistance in finding a residence for my sister as we had a very tight deadline to find a suitable suitable location for her.

I had Mrs. Isabelle Poulin as an advisor.

Mrs. Poulin was 100% invested in finding us a suitable place for my sister. She supported us throughout the process with her professionalism and cheerfulness.

Another big thank you Isabelle, for all the help we received and that very quickly.

I will not hesitate to recommend your organization as well as you, Mrs. Isabelle Poulin.

— Lise P. et Johanne F. (04/23/21)

Louise Chartrand,

I finalized the lease for my mother with Sélection Panorama, Care Units and she is moving on May 1 as discussed.

I wanted to express my gratitude for your precious help … without you this project .. I would never have completed it.

You knew how to be patient, understanding, caring … and above all you never put any pressure on me … you knew how to listen to our concerns, our fears, our many questions.
You accompanied me throughout the process despite the Covid .. the difficulty of having appointments …

Your experience as a social worker has helped a lot … you understand the issues facing clients and their families …

I am very happy with the staff at the new residence and they are attentive to our questions and problems. The fact that you are my advisor has surely helped to develop this beautiful collaboration with the residence.

I would end by saying that your warm personality was a crush… with you I felt confident and that I believe was very precious… Thank you for continuing to follow up with me… it comforts me greatly.

I have been privileged to have you as an advisor and I thank you for all the support you have given us.

Good continuity and I hope we will keep in touch.

— Hélène S. (04/16/21)

They say that bad luck is good for everything and that has proven to be true for me. Gilles lost a leg, which is not nothing, but it allowed me to be in contact with precious people like Ms. Lise Dupuis who worked a lot to find a residence when it was not easy.

Gilles changed his mind at least three or more times in choosing a residence and Ms. Dupuis was very patient and dedicated. She even worried that I got lost on the way. If you want to take 2 hours to go from St-Hyacinthe to Richelieu, try to follow me …

Ms. Dupuis even called me today Sunday to follow up on the game.
Without really knowing Gilles, she found the perfect place for him and I would say it was beyond his expectations and mine.

Thank you very much for the service you provide, it is immensely appreciated 😊

— Louise T. (04/09/21)

Dear Mr. Sirois,

A short note to say thank you to Visavie for the services you have provided in finding a suitable retirement home for my sister.

And a special shout-out to Heather Hyndman in Ottawa who helped guide us through the choice of two different retirement homes – first at Lynwood Park and then a subsequent move to Thorncliffe Place in February when we needed to find a home with additional care for my sister.

Heather was extremely helpful in terms of lining up prospective locations, helping sort through what my sister would need and what each home could offer, and even arranging moving through Simply Senior which made the process much smoother. Heather was kind and generous with her time and availability throughout, always thoughtful about our needs, and helped us through what otherwise would have been a very stressful time.

Thanks to you, the Visavie team and especially to Heather!

— John D. (04/02/21)

I consulted a long-time friend, Lina Ali, to advise me on a good place for my mother. My mother is in Sherbrooke. I know this is not her territory, but, I needed help securing my 90 year old mother.

Lina took care of finding a great place where my mom is going to be safe and have great service. I’m not comfortable with all these papers and places and Lina has been able to guide me and my mother very well. She made the appointments with the local customer service manager.

We were delighted with the meeting and the excellent service from Lina, who really takes care of my mother.

— Danielle B. (03/26/21)


I’ve wanted to write to you for a while, but one thing after another …

After talking to each other almost every day for a few weeks … everything suddenly stopped … We no longer needed your services directly, it seems …
However, I wanted to sincerely thank you for everything you have done and the effort you put into it. You really show a lot of empathy and you were able to guide us well in this process.

The preparations for the move are under way. The big day is March 31st. Pierre sold his car (phew!) And it looks like the steps to take (insurance, and other changes to be made) are giving him back energy. In addition, our sister in Drummondville makes small dishes for him for two full meals a day, frozen in trays with vegetables, potatoes or rice or other, etc. not to mention the instructions for reheating. Worthy of a high-end caterer! It is my son Étienne who shuttles every two weeks to Drummondville to deliver to Pierre. He is still well surrounded the ‘my uncle’. “That too must help him, because he eats healthier meals than he could buy ready-made at the grocery store.

Finally, as you can see, everything is on track. Pierre has been vaccinated since Saturday and Louis and I will be vaccinated on the 19th!
On the day of the move, Étienne will come to assist me, as he will be able to go with Pierre to the residence before everything is finished at his current address. That way, he can bring his cat (he intends to put it in the shower so it doesn’t interfere with the movers at the residence – I thought it was a good idea. Big enough for he has space and his food and glazed, so he will be able to see what is happening 😊)

I haven’t forgotten that we have an appointment to thank you for your help. We could meet this summer at Pierre’s for a BBQ, since there is one … or if not, a meal in the dining room. Finally, we will see where the pandemic is …

Thank you again and I wish you the best for the future, professionally and personally.

Looking forward to seeing you,

— Michèle D. (03/19/21)

Madame Poulin, Pardon my computer skills, but ultimately and absolutely I wanted to follow up on my father’s file. I would like to express to you my gratitude and my great satisfaction with the work carried out with precision, speed, availability, great openness, listening deployed by the entire Visavie team and in particular with Isabelle Poulin who showed empathy with a sense of humor that put us in a relationship of trust between my father and me. Successful professional file management; my father has been living at 3295 Boulevard Gouin Est since July 8, 2020. Once again, a huge thank you!

— Ginette P. (03/05/21)


I wanted to come and express my gratitude to Ms. Josée Reid (Laval, Laurentides, Lanaudière team) for her excellent support in finding a residence for my mother.

Josée was very attentive, patient and gave good advice in order to find a place to live that really met my mother’s needs. She supported me in this particularly emotional moment. In addition, since we were in a period of COVID-19, it was causing me additional stress.

Thank you to your organization and particularly to Josée Reid for her unwavering support. Your body is a great help.

— Josée B. (02/26/21)

Hello !
I would like to thank Ms. Josée Reid for her dedication! Thanks to Josée I was able to locate my parents at the Jardin le Renoir in Laval in October 2020 & now at the Marquis in Sorel!
I congratulate her for her availability and her professionalism !!

— Diane L. (02/15/21)

I absolutely want to mention the immense help, the kindness, the availability, the empathy of your advisor Janique Duguay. This lady is a fairy godmother. Placing a loved one is emotionally difficult, the research even more so. With the help of Mme Duguay, in less than a week the perfect residence was found for my father. Never, with all my calls and my questions, did I have the feeling to bother her, she kept telling me not to bother me.
I repeat my complete satisfaction and gratitude to Ms. Duguay. Thank you very much Madam for your more than excellent service.

— Danielle B. (02/12/21)

I had the opportunity to work with Ms. Caroline Deslandes over the past week, I wanted to highlight the exceptional work of this lady. She had to refer to me for a user file struggling with relocation difficulties for her wife. Ms. Deslandes has been proactive, empathetic, professional and of exceptional humanity.
She has all the qualities required in my opinion to support the elderly in the relocation process, she has been able to be very reassuring and develop a bond of trust with the user.

I want to personally thank her for all the efforts she has made for the well-being of our aging population. Wishing that she continues her excellent work for a long time.

— Julie P. (02/05/21)

Madame Boutin,

A huge thank you for the excellent service you have provided me with remarkable speed. In less than a week you fixed my problem.
The position I found myself in brought me insecurity and stress, you have no doubt noticed it,
Your professionalism combined with your positive attitude eased my anxieties. I quickly noticed your customer concern, which resulted in reassuring trust. Thanks to you I have a superior accommodation situation in an environment which I think will please me.
I am very grateful to you.
Thank you Madame Boutin.

— Gaétan S. (01/29/21)

Good evening Celia,
We are the ones thanking you for your time, your big heart and your understanding as well as your empathy. Thanks to you we had a hope that Grandma can return to the well-being of her home. Thank you from the bottom of my heart ♥ ️ and we will talk again Friday thank you good evening .

— Cristina (01/20/21)

Good evening Marie,

The past few weeks have been filled with emotions for our family.

Your support in guiding us through the steps required to find a residence meeting the needs of our father Jacques Lévesque was a great support for us.

Your advice and your availability have enabled us to move through this entire process, despite the pandemic and the uncertainties surrounding it.

Hoping that our father can integrate well into his new living environment.

thanks again for everything

— Nathalie Lévesque (01/19/21)

A huge thank you to Mrs. Tousignant. On this Christmas Eve I have a very special thought for Huguette Tousignant. She was of special help to me by advising me La Marée for my friend Jeanne. I have full confidence in the warm, attentive staff, you can feel that these men and women are happy at work And that at La Marée the staff respond quickly when help is needed. The family atmosphere makes a big difference. Spend happy holidays with your loved ones.

— Francine Desroches Roch (01/04/21)

From the moment I found Visavie on the web, Marie-Hélène Laplante was a beacon for me. A light that had just come on. Immediately, Ms. Laplante’s reassuring tone and calmness became a sort of balm in my father’s search for a home. She suggested and quickly directed me to residences that met our criteria. Today, my father feels at home at the Villa du Parc 2012. The whole family is relieved and happy with this beautiful outcome just before Christmas. Ms. Laplante, Thank you!

— Pierre Joly (12/30/20)

Hello, I am 54 years old and unfortunately I am losing my autonomy. My mother is 87 years old and has dementia and cognitive losses. I contacted Marie-Helene Laplante from the Visavie organization to find a good residence for my mother and for me. I was happy to meet Marie-Hélène as a human person, attentive to people, helpful, empathetic and genuine. She found the perfect residence for my mom and me. Many thanks!!! You have my eternal gratitude. Yours truly,

— François Marceau (12/29/20)

Thank you Carmela and Lina Ali, for your good wishes and the lovely 2021 calendar. I wish you a very happy new year 2021, health for all and peace of mind. Ps: Still very happy in my home.

— Louise R. (12/23/20)

Dear Carmela,

How are you? And your family?

This year, you were unanimously elected by the members of our family: the angel of the year for us.

I have so much gratitude for you, it’s hard to express how much gratitude I have for you, for your support and friendship.

In this case, Paul André and I would like to give you a little something that we have for you. Would it be best if you left that to your work on Fleury?


— Nathalie Shamlian

Marie-Hélène, thank you for bringing me here. I’m so happy there. It is truly the paradise that has awaited me for all these years of suffering. You have been an angel come down from heaven to me.

— Gaétane G.

Human-oriented, propelled into the role of caregiver following my father’s stroke in February 2019, I called on Visavie to be accompanied throughout the process of finding a new health care environment. life meeting the needs, abilities and interests of my now 94 year old father.

Ms. Sylvie Piacente, authorized advisor at Visavie, kindly accompanied us throughout the research process. And we are infinitely grateful. My father now lives at Résidence Sainte-Rose, an RPA, a living environment full of warmth and care.

— Julie Perrotte

I cannot thank you enough for coming into our lives. You chose the perfect residence for our Mom. I hadn’t seen her that happy for a long time. I hope you know that the work you do really impacts people’s lives! Thank you for everything.

— Karen

Hello Sylvie,

It’s been almost a year since you helped us find a residence for my mother-in-law, Margaret Geekie Curtis. I wanted to thank you for your diligence in choosing the residence. Never would have thought that this choice was of such importance.

Because of the coronavirus crisis, we are much more informed about the situation of these residences, which is truly disastrous. On the other hand, I am very happy to inform you that Chateaux Dollard, where my mother-in-law lives, no resident has been infected with COVID to date.

I know that your immense help determined his choice of residence but now, we can also say that your assistance has surely given him the best possible condition of life.

I wanted to convey my sincere thanks to you and let you know that for us, your work and your dedication was really very much appreciated.

Hope this post finds you healthy and above all safe.

Thanks again..

Thank you for the precious services, especially from Madame Hélène and Monsieur Ahmed. They were my angels during the illness of my husband Pierre Barnes.

The family and I, in particular, would like to thank your Visavie en Outaouais advisor for the help and support provided in finding a quality residence and providing good care for my aunt following her long stay in the hospital. Being the one person to deal with the whole family situation I cannot express the importance of the support given and the lightening of the burden during all these weeks. The meetings, the links and the advice made it possible to find the best place for my aunt who is pursuing a new stage in her life where she is now so happy and so well surrounded. A big thank you !

I would like to thank you with all my heart for the help and service that my family and I have received from Visavie Montreal in particular from Mrs. Anne Hodgkinson. Last week we lost our mother, and I had to find a new home for our father. A relative had suggested Visavie to us and that is how we came into contact with Mrs. Hodgkinson, our anxieties were relieved. We found a new residence with the necessary care for my father in record time and with minimal formalities. It was a tremendous burden that was taken away from our current situation. The professionalism and dedication shown by Ms. Hodgkinson have been unparalleled to us. Allow me, on behalf of my father, to offer you my most sincere thanks.

I highly recommend the services of Mr. Paul-Guy Vézeau (Visavie Laval, Laurentides and Lanaudière). His role is to help find THE right residence for her clients. After contacting you and targeting your needs, he will suggest a few residences and accompany you during visits, which is a major asset… Indeed. Given his expertise in the field, he will know how to ask the important questions that you may have forgotten to ask … No costs are attached to his services since it is the residence that you will have chosen according to your needs that covers his fees. Mr. Vézeau is a charming man, very attentive to his clients; we really enjoyed working with him. The residence we have chosen for our mother suits us perfectly, it meets our expectations and the needs of our mother both in the short and long term. I wish you good luck !

I live in Florida and my mom lives in Montreal. I consider myself very lucky to be able to depend on Visavie to take care of her between my visits to Montreal. My mother greatly appreciates the kindness and dedication of your colleagues who visit her regularly and the reliability of your support service allows me to be worry-free. I would like to thank your team for taking care of her dentist and oculist appointments, and especially for having accompanied her to the hospital when she had to spend the night waiting in the emergency room. ! Truly,

Je tiens à remercier votre organisme et particulièrement madame Linda Caron, en Outaouais. Son professionnalisme et son côté humain ont convaincu ma mère d’aller en résidence. Aussi, la rapidité avec laquelle vous avez trouvez une nouvelle résidence a facilité la transition de la maison vers la résidence. Je n’hésiterai pas à recommander les services de madame Linda Caron dans ce genre de situation. Ma mère a maintenant emménagée et est heureuse de son choix.

I am writing to convey to you my complete satisfaction with the services provided by your Visavie advisor for the Ottawa-Gatineau region, Ms. Linda Caron. Ms. Caron helped me find a residence in the Hull-Aylmer sector for my mother, aged 85 and who wanted to move to the Outaouais. Ms. Caron responded to our initial request with professionalism, speed and efficiency. She was very attentive to my mother’s needs and wants and very respectful during the interview and conversations with her, and from what I have observed, with older people in general. She was very available, responding to our messages quickly and not hesitating to work on our file in the evening. In addition, despite the short time we had to find a residence, she managed to offer us good options that met our requirements very well and supported us well in our final choice and the related procedures. She even exceeded her mandate to find us home services in a region other than her own. I really appreciated the fact that she traveled with us on residency visits and helped us negotiate this process while remaining impartial and not trying to impose her preferences. She followed up on each visit and adjusted to changes in our needs. Mrs. Caron was always smiling, pleasant, attentive towards my mother, and showed a lot of kindness and a big heart. So, I repeat, we are completely satisfied with her services and have no hesitation in highly recommending her to other people. And we wish him good luck in the future. Many thanks Linda.

My first contact with Ms. St-Denis was in June 2019 and she helped me find the accommodation where I currently live. The first contact was very, very pleasant and positive and his presence during my visit to the premises was reassuring, from that moment on! It is obvious that she cares about people, in my case, an elder, who are looking for residence. Once this step had been taken, and my decision taken to move in, I believed, obviously wrongly, but I could not imagine, that the role of Ms. St-Denis was over, as far as I am concerned … Two months later, she contacted me. And for me, this completely unexpected step on my part was a light at the end of a tunnel. Delicately, without any pressure, this first contact allowed me to express the experience in which I found myself and without wanting to go into details at all, she allowed me once again through her skills, her understanding and her empathy and she gave me the opportunity to find a solution to the unexpected problem I was facing. From then on, active research on her part allowed me to find another place that suited me better. We are almost at the end of this second step, but I have a deep confidence that if I found myself in a dilemma again, Ms. St-Denis (and I have a lot of concrete evidence of it) would be there to help me! Without any hesitation, I will recommend the services of Ms. St-Denis and, by extension, the company she represents (Visavie). I will not hesitate to resort to her again.

Just a quick note to thank you for the wonderful service your company and representative, Heather Hyndman, provided! I had been told that the residence Mom was currently at could no longer provide sufficient care as Mom’s dementia had become worse. The only option provided was to move Mom to a temporary long-term care facility that had openings while we waited a couple of years for a spot in our choice of long-term care facilities. The temporary ones we were encouraged to send her to were not very nice and quite far from my home which would make visiting more difficult. There are a tremendous number of retirement and assisted-care residences and I was struggling to find an appropriate place for Mom and get the required information. Having been extremely busy with work, it also made it difficult to take the time to investigate all this. Our local community care group (Champlain-LHIN) recommended your company so I got in touch and immediately my stress level went down!! I cannot say enough about your rep, Heather H. Her knowledge of my area, the residences and the levels of care offered were exceptional and she was able to recommend a couple of options and confirm availability within hours. Heather was amazing!!!! Not only did she have the knowledge, but her kindness and friendly and bubbly personality made the process stress free and even pleasant. Heather was great with Mom too and had her relaxed, smiling and even enjoying our visit to the potential residence. THANK YOU! Sincerely,

— Jackie Evans and her mom, Susan Davis

I was so nervous about going to a residence and Lina Ali was there from day 1! She was never pushy, gave me all the time to make my decisions and whenever I called her, she always answered. She even came to visit me now that I am settled. I totally love my new home, I made so many friends, so I want to thank Lina with all my heart for finding me this residence. I think she is such a great asset to your company Visavie. Thank you and remain so grateful,
