The Brome-Missisquoi Caregiver Support Group (BMCSG) is very pleased to unveil the results of the Maison Gilles-Carle de Brome-Missisquoi expansion project, leading to an enhancement of the organization’s services for the region’s caregivers.
The work took place during 2022 and was initiated in order to meet the growing demand for our respite, accommodation and psychosocial support services. The new layout of Maison Gilles-Carle de Brome-Missisquoi includes:
- The addition of two rooms and the expansion of the common areas for an increased capacity to accommodate and for an improved offering of activities. The organization can now welcome a total of 12 assisted persons per day, including six individuals for day respite and six for overnight respite. Prior to the expansion, the BMCSG was able to welcome 8 assisted persons per day;
- New office spaces
- The reorganization of a closed room for more privacy during meetings/discussions with caregivers;
- A new outdoor terrace at the back of the house.
“The BMCSG is very pleased with the results of the work. The renovations took a little longer than expected for various reasons such as the rising cost of materials, delivery delays and the scarcity of labour, but we did it! Our team is convinced that these changes will greatly contribute to the quality of the services offered by the Brome-Missisquoi Caregiver Support Group,” says Christine Tougas, Executive Director of the organization.
