MONKLAND PROJECT

Le Monkland is located at 4400 West Hill in NDG. It is developed in partnership with the  Société d’habitation de Montréal (SHDM) and the CIUSSS Centre-Ouest-de-l’île-de-Montréal (CIUSSS-CODIM). The building holds 100 apartments for autonomous people 55 years and over.

The project is made up of 7 residents who were chosen by a joint ÉquiToît-CIUSSS-CODIM selection committee. To be selected, candidates had to have an ISO-SMAF profile of 4, 6, or 9 and require no more than 35h of services per week.

Residents have signed a lease with the SHDM for their 3 ½  apartments. The adaptations are underway with the SHQ and the City of montreal, through the PAD program.

The services will be ensured by the CIUSSS-CODIM, through a home care agency. Eventually, someone will be present day/evening/night to meet the needs of residents. An extra 20h/week is planned  for rush hours. The maximum number of hours of services given by the CIUSSS is 5h/day or 35h/week.

Services provided include:

  • an individualized service plan

  • coordination of services by an onsite supervisor

  • services will be given by a certified ASSS, available onsite 24/7. This will include help for getting up/going to bed, personal hygiene, help for simple meals (including toasts, coffee)

  • help for domestic activities: cleaning, laundry, change the bed, wash the dishes, put away groceries,  take out the garbage, ..

 

There is no meal preparation included. A catering service or something similar could be set up. The cost  of meals will be assumed by the residents according to their use.

 

To sign up:

The 7 residents have already been chosen. However, if you are interested in living there, you can fill out the following questionnaire and send it to equitoit@gmail.com.
