Finding a retirement home in Quebec City, where to start?

Of course, several solutions are available depending on the level of health and independence. But making the choice may turn out to be more complicated than you expect. In this article, we will learn the best way to find the retirement home in Quebec City that meets your aging parent’s needs.

The good choice

When you ask Louise Boutin, advisor at Visavie, her opinion on Quebec City residences, here is her answer:

“Here, retirement homes have the well-being of residents at heart. From the beginning, we notice that they respect the choices and the emotions of the residents. I often hear from my old clients. And all tell me that their standard of living is up to the promises that the residence has made to them. “

Choosing the best retirement home for you or your loved one is not an easy decision. There may be many options in Quebec City, but how do you choose the right one? This is where Visavie comes in.

“We generally visit two residences, maximum three! »tells Louise. “We make our selection based on our client’s needs. The most important thing is to avoid to increase stress and anxiety with unnecessary visits.
