    Resources just
    around the corner
    The mission of the Régie régionale de la santé et des services
    sociaux is to manage all of the health and social services
    available to you in Montreal.
    For the fifth year in a row, the Régie régionale has published
    a reference guide called “Montreal Health Care” designed
    to facilitate your access to these services. This guide links you
    to the many resources in your neighbourhood: physical and
    mental health care, in-home support services, assistance for
    seniors… You’ll find it all and more in the 2002-2003 edition
    of the guide.
    Keep it close to the phone for easy access whenever
    you need it.

              Blood tests
              without appointment
    Many tests, including blood tests, can be taken without
    an appointment. Just go to the appropriate facility as
    indicated by your doctor, and always make sure
    to confirm opening hours beforehand!
    Your results will be forwarded free of charge to your
    doctor’s office.

In case of emergency
               >        Call

If you are able to, go to the nearest hospital
offering 24-hour emergency care.
To consult a physician without an appointment,
you can go to CLSC Parc Extension or go to
your local walk-in clinic, but call ahead to
check opening hours.

               Services for children,
               parents and the whole family
    Parents with newborns or young children can turn to their
    CLSC for information and advice about pregnancy, infant
    care, nutrition, dental hygiene, general health, vaccination,
    education, child behaviour and family life. Expecting parents
    can also benefit from pre-natal classes. In addition, health,
    social and family support services are offered after childbirth.
    Are you the parent of a child, teenager or young
    adult? The CLSC can help with information and
    advice on your role as a parent, and can refer you
    to additional resources when necessary.

     If either you or a loved one is experiencing personal problems
     or feel the need for professional help, don’t hesitate to speak
     to your doctor about it or contact your CLSC, where someone
     will guide you to the appropriate resources.
     If you require psychiatric care, here is the designated
     facility in your area:
     • McGill University Health Centre (MUHC)
     You can, however, request the services of another hospital
     if you prefer. Again, your CLSC can help you or provide you
     with more information.

           We’re here for young people
Whether at the CLSC or in school, a team of professionals is
available to help young people deal with a range of issues,
including general health, sexuality (contraception, STDs, etc.),
pregnancy, substance abuse, personal or family problems,
and other concerns. In accordance with the rights granted
under the Civil Code of Quebec, anyone who is 14 or older
can obtain health services from a CLSC or a medical clinic
in the strictest of confidence.

All young people can receive free vaccinations
at their school or CLSC. These vaccines include:
• Hepatitis B – for people aged 10 to 18 (as well as all
  4th graders)
• Diphtheria/tetanus (booster) – for people aged 14 to 16
Certain other vaccines are also available free of charge
for young people at risk, such as street youth,
drug users, homosexual and bisexual
youth, and chronic hepatitis B and C
carriers. Contact your CLSC for
more information.

             Special services for seniors
                           In addition to services
                           available to the general
                            population, seniors
                            who are no longer
                            fully self-sufficient
                            may also benefit from
                             a variety of services
                             tailored specifically
                             to their needs.
                              For example, your CLSC
                              can assign someone to
                           provide you with ongoing
     support and guide you through the health care
     system. This person will make sure you receive
     appropriate services in a safe environment,
     either in your own home, at the CLSC or with
     whichever resource is best suited to your needs.

Domestic help for seniors
Need a hand with your regular housekeeping
duties or even that big cleanup? Reduced-rate
housekeeping services are available to people
aged 65 or more, based on family income
and size, through the Government of
Quebec Financial Assistance Program.
People under 65 who require domestic help
after surgery or as a result of illness or other
incapacity need a referral from their CLSC
to qualify for the reduced rate.
This program offers an ideal community-
based solution: seniors have access to
affordable, quality domestic help while
supporting a local business.

                for people 60 years of age or over and people at risk

 Who should get this free vaccine?
 People 60 years of age or over and people with health problems
 requiring regular medical follow-up.

Why should I be vaccinated?
Because the flu (or influenza) is a very contagious viral infection.
Because the flu can cause serious complications that can be fatal
for people who are more vulnerable.
Because the annual flu shot is the best way to protect yourself
against this infection.

When should I be vaccinated?
You can be vaccinated as of November 1. The flu is more frequent in
wintertime. To protect yourself effectively against the flu, make an
appointment with your family doctor or your CLSC to receive
your free shot as soon as possible.

The ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux
considers that vaccination is the best means of
protection against the flu.
