Little Brothers: Present in the Lower Laurentians since 2015
In the Lower Laurentians, we are able to observe that the isolation of seniors is much more present than we could imagine. Some of them have lost contact with the community and it is very easy to no longer see them. One of our great challenges is certainly to make them feel at home in the community.
It is by working together with others in the community that we can identify isolated seniors, recreate a caring community around them, and ensure a continuum of care and services.
We promote grassroots mobilization and the matching of seniors with volunteers living in their neighbourhood.
On a daily basis, Little Brothers Basses-Laurentides can thus mark their presence and their ability to touch the hearts of our Great Friends.

Within the Community
Since it is collectively that we can respond to the needs and well-being of seniors, it is essential to work closely with collaborators and partners to extend the reach of our action.
