The Laurentians Integrated Health and Social Services Center (CISSS) is announcing the creation of 474 residential caretaker positions.
This initiative follows the arrival of the many new attendants who have taken the accelerated training “Becoming a CHSLD caretaker” set up by the government in order to meet the sustained need for attendants in the various accommodation settings for the elderly. For the President and CEO of the CISSS des Laurentides, Ms. Rosemonde Landry, this news responds to the desire to keep this precious workforce at the CISSS des Laurentides.
“Many newly trained agents work within our organization but await the establishment of a permanent position. The creation of these new positions will be an opportunity for these people to secure their jobs and will also allow us to recruit new people. We are always happy to be able to consolidate our teams and to expand our large family of employees,” she explained.
According to Ms. Rosemonde Landry, the creation of these positions is in addition to the numerous efforts of the organization to ensure the stability of the CISSS des Laurentides teams. This will also allow the CISSS to continue their work with the seniors who reside in their shelters. “The more professionals we have on site, the more we will be able to offer quality services, benevolent support and stimulating activities to the residents in our CHSLDs,” concluded Ms. Landry.
