CIUSSS de la Mauricie-et-du-Centre-du-Québec justified this decision by asserting that complaints had been lodged and that the owners had not followed through on recommendations.

The supplier could have taken measures or tolerated situations likely to endanger the health and safety of the elderly, CIUSSS claims, to the astonishment of residents.

“We are treated here like royalty! said Pierre Como, who has been living in Cénacle St-Pierre for a month.

“The last time I moved 5 years ago I was sure to stay here. Eugene Reubel added: “When I knew it was going to be closed… it frustrated me.

Families are asking for clarification and more transparency from CIUSSS. They want to know in detail the reasons for the closure.

“My dad is fine here!” We want to know why CIUSSS is closed! We want something tangible. No rumours, ”said Mark Healy, whose father has lived in the condo for several years.

A few meters from Cénacle St-Pierre we find Béthanie’s residence which also belongs to the Résidences Chemin-du-Roy group. The building is completely empty. Over the past month, CIUSSS has not renewed the certificate allowing the building to operate.

The area has 176 private homes for the elderly. Of that number, four have lost their degrees this year.

In 2019, the residence of Notre Dame, another establishment run by Les Résidences Chemin du Roy group, was investigated over allegations of abuse.
