Green initiative delights CHSLD residents in Huntingdon 

On May 31, the Huntingdon residential and long-term care centre (CHSLD) welcomed 21 students from École Arthur-Pigeon high school for a gardening activity that also involved several residents. 

 As part of the “Un jardin à ma hauteur” project, students from the high school brought in vegetable plants to fill raised planters located in the new outdoor space created for residents at long-term care centre. Students helped the residents to plant a variety of vegetable seedlings, which will be enjoyed all summer long by the residents and visitors to the facility. 


Three disabled persons work with plants in a raised bed garden.


This initiative is one of the projects being implemented by the Montérégie-Ouest Integrated Health and Social Services Centre (CISSSMO) as part of the Québec government’s Plan d’action pour l’hébergement de longue durée. The long-term housing action plan, which stems from the government’s Housing and long-term care policy, aims to provide a living and care environment that evolves and adapts to the various needs of residents to encourage them and their families to feel more at home.
