In accordance with regulations, all requests for placement at Father Dowd Residential Centre are processed by the health and social services body for the geographic area (Integrated Health and Social Services University Network for West-Central Montreal) composed of healthcare professionals. Requests are reviewed by healthcare professionals and decisions are made according to the individual’s needs. Wherever possible, efforts are made to provide services to allow individuals to stay at home as long as possible. A social worker from the community – either at a CLSC or an acute care hospital – must make the official request to the Integrated Health and Social Services Centre (CIUSSS) who then prioritizes those on the waiting list according to the urgency of each case.
