The Enharmonie residences win an excellence award for their recreational program

Tuesday, October 24, 2017

The Enharmonie network is proud to be the recipient of the 2017 Excellence Award from the Fédération québécoise du loisir en institution (FQLI) in the “Recreation and Quality of Life” category. For the past 33 years, the FQLI, a provincial organisation promoting excellence in recreational activities for health and other institutions, has rewarded institutions “which are particularly considerate of the development of their clients’ well-being”.  

The Enharmonie network received the award for the implementation and development of its recreational services since 2013. The recreation team is now composed of five community recreation professionals for its 10 residences, supported by numerous volunteers. 

“This network of residences distinguishes itself through its desire to offer an empowering living environment. Everything is done to reduce isolation and contribute to the personal growth of residents”, the FQLI explained during the award presentation. The team’s main objective is to create and offer diversified activities, which are well adapted to the residents’ potential, while emphasizing the freedom of choice and strengthening the sense of belonging.

“Our team is doing remarkable work with our residents”, confirms Marie-Josée Gendron, Director of the Seniors’ Residence Department at the Office municipal d’habitation de Montréal (OMHM), which owns the Enharmonie network. “We firmly believe that it is important to offer a living environment where people can experience personal growth, discover new talents, exercise, socialise and pursue their passions.” The recreational calendar includes directed and non-directed activities and caters to a variety of interests through percussion workshops, picnics in neighbouring parks, outings to art galleries and much more.
