To live at Saint Brigid’s Home, you must first be assessed by a social worker and a physician. The process is the same for all public long-term care centres (CHSLDs) across Québec. This comprehensive assessment is used to determine whether you are ready to live at Saint Brigid’s Home and, if so, what care you would need.
