Today was the beginning of the visits to the garden. We can say that it has been a rewarding experience for all.

Some people have asked us why we put a 45-minute limit. It is because we must disinfect all the facilities with a peroxide spray.

The video shows one of our maintenance workers disinfecting one of the regular tables (there are six places to disinfect every hour).

Thank you for your understanding.


In order to maintain an adequate and risk-free environment for our residents, we have separated the C.H.S.L.D. Château Westmount into different areas.

Areas classified 1 are areas reserved for residents, these are controlled and disinfected which allows us to ensure the safety of residents.

Areas classified 2 are prohibited to residents, either because of the risks that can be found there, e.g. basement or kitchen where dangerous products are found, or because of the risk of having external contaminants such as COVID-19 virus (basement employees’ clothing).

Areas classified 3 are areas that are temporarily closed to residents for administrative (Penthouse) or clinical (resident’s room in isolation).

Areas classified 4 are areas where residents have tested positive for COVID-19.

Areas may have to change from one level to another depending on the conditions. Posters are posted at the entrances to the zones.

Thank you for respecting them.
