RAPPID+OR PROGRAM - 65 years and over

In order to promote a healthy and safe living environment for seniors who wish to remain in their own homes, the partners involved in the Rappid+Or program are pleased to announce the resumption of home visits this Fall 2022.

Upon registration of the senior with the Centre d'action bénévole Solange-Beauchamp, a team composed of a firefighter, a police officer and a volunteer will come and meet the person.

The volunteer, trained by the Volunteer Bureau and the CISSS des Laurentides, will talk to the person about his or her living environment, health and interests, and will present the various resources that can help him or her, if necessary.

The police officer will go around the residence to check the security of doors and windows, identify objects that could cause falls or interfere with interventions with first responders, do prevention and answer questions about fraud, abuse, driving, etc.

The firefighter will check for smoke alarms, heating systems, electrical overloads or any other potentially dangerous situation. The firefighter will provide a kit with items that can enhance safety if needed.
