If my health deteriorates, will I be able to stay at Sélection Retraite?

Most Sélection Retraite residences cater to clients who are able to live independently. An assessment of your health is necessary to understand your needs and determine whether we can provide you with the services you require. If necessary, an agreement can be made with the local CLSC, where personnel can administer the right level of care to you. Some of our residences offer progressive care units to accommodate individuals who are losing their autonomy.

Am I eligible for the Quebec government tax credit?

People aged 70 and up may be eligible for a tax credit if they meet certain criteria. Tax credits are given on a percentage of eligible expenses related to home care services. If you’re eligible, your residence will handle all the paperwork. For more information on the Quebec government’s tax credit program, please visit the Revenu Québec website.

What is included in my rent?

Every apartment comes with a variety of conveniences, such as heating, electricity, cable television and emergency call systems. Our fact sheets explain the characteristics of each apartment in greater detail. Other features, like air-conditioning or housekeeping, can be added for an additional cost.
