An upcoming survey is seeking input from Vaudreuil-Soulanges residents on their experiences and suggestions for the Palliative Care Residence located in Hudson.
Eight years after welcoming its first patients and receiving hundreds of heartfelt testimonials, the Vaudreuil-Soulanges Palliative Care Residence (VSPCR) and the Foundation's Board of Directors are preparing for the future by embarking on a strategic planning exercise.
Employees and volunteers, as well as the families of patients who have stayed at the Residence, will be consulted via a questionnaire in the coming weeks. Residents of the municipalities of Hudson, Rigaud, Saint-Lazare, Vaudreuil-Dorion, Île-Perrot, Pincourt, Saint-Zotique, Coteau-du-Lac and Les Cèdres will have the opportunity to complete a survey that will soon be available on the VSPCR’s website. In addition, randomly selected residents will receive a phone call between September 4 and 28 and will be able to answer the survey questions if they have not already done so online.
The VSPCR opened its doors September 10, 2010. Since then, more than 1,350 patients and families have received specialized care services, allowing them to live their last days together.
Executive Director Jean-François Thibert emphasizes the importance of this consultation. Collaboration and community support are essential to defining the vision of the VSPCR. "The fact remains that the two most important elements that support our mission - and that do not appear in the balance sheet of the Residence - are the quality of care offered and our extraordinary staff," said Thibert.
