While medical transportation-accompaniment is very successful at Centre d’action bénévole L’Actuel, the organization also offers a whole range of services to support the home care of seniors in the region and to support the sick, disabled or convalescent.

Medical Transportation-Accompaniment

The medical transportation-accompaniment service is offered to the elderly, the sick and individuals in loss of autonomy (physical, psychological or intellectual) who must go to medical appointments in the region or out of region.

The medical transportation service is provided by volunteers from L’Actuel. The beneficiary must assume travel expenses calculated according to the distance travelled.
To book a transportation, it is strongly recommended to contact L’Actuel 5 to 10 working days before the medical appointment.

Reservations : 450 455-3331 extension 0

Friendly Visits

Friendly visits consist of matching a volunteer with a person who is alone, elderly or in loss of autonomy. This weekly visit to the beneficiary’s home helps break the isolation and provides moral support to the senior.

PAIR Program

L’Actuel offers the free automated call service of the PAIR program. This service is provided to any isolated individual who is at risk of falling, aging, in loss of autonomy or convalescent. These calls (security or medication reminder) allow users to maintain their autonomy while ensuring their safety.
