Tour of the regions: Aux Couleurs de la Vie Lanaudière

On October 6, 2020

As fall is upon us, l'Appui continues its virtual tour through the province to showcase the inspiring initiatives in our community organizations. This week, l’Appui visits the Lanaudière region.


L'APPUI LANAUDIÈRE – THE EMOTIONAL IMPACT

The Aux Couleurs de la Vie Lanaudière organization brings comfort and attentive listening to people or their loved ones confronted with a diagnosis of a serious illness. From disease prognosis to the mourning process, the agency supports, informs and accompanies family caregivers.

How did the association adapt itself to the first wave of the pandemic? By continuing to offer caregivers a variety of services suited to respect the restrictions imposed by the pandemic. Services were offered by telephone and video conferencing.

"L’impact émotif, ce grand oublié" (the great forgotten emotional impact) is one of the projects carried out by Aux Couleurs de la Vie Lanaudière. Through conferences, training and support groups, the agency supports family caregivers in a process of awareness of their emotional experience.

If you want more information on their services and activities, contact Aux Couleurs de la Vie Lanaudière by email or by phone (450 752-4436).
