The Aging at Home Strategy provides seniors and their caregivers with a range of harmonized and integrated community services. These services are designed to help them stay healthy and independent, as long as possible and in their own homes. This strategy is currently provided at the CSCE in Embrun to meet the needs of seniors in the Russell Township area.

Since its implementation, the Aging at Home Strategy has adjusted to meet the needs and demands of seniors in the community. Initially, three staff members were involved: a nurse practitioner, a social worker and a health promoter. Now, several others offer services related to this strategy, including professionals at the new memory clinic.

Memory Clinic

The Memory Clinic in Embrun is based on a primary care model that focuses on early diagnostic assessment and monitoring of individuals with mild cognitive impairment and dementia. A doctor as well as nurses and a social worker from the Embrun location have received training in this area and have been offering services at the Memory Clinic since January 2019. The objective of the Memory Clinic is to assess and assist people with memory disorders and their family members. The CSCE and its staff are very aware of the lack of access to assessment services for mild cognitive impairment or dementia and attach great importance to ensuring that francophone clients can be assessed in French.
