Human solutions for seniors



We are living increasingly longer lives and in better health. Seniors today are full of energy, in good shape and well informed. But life being what it is, aging can bring its share of problems and difficulties. When this happens, it can be useful to seek advice from professionals who can help us handle and find solutions to situations that may sometimes seem insurmountable.


A reliable resource

Since its very beginning, Les Services Gérontologiques Monique Renaud has emerged as a leader in the field of psychosocial evaluations for the elderly. Founder Monique Renaud holds a Master’s degree in Social Work and has close to 30 years’ experience in gerontology. In 1997, she founded a firm that specialized in gerontological social services, one of the first of its kind.

Since then, she has developed expertise in the homologation of mandates in case of incapacity and the institution of protective supervision. She and her team are frequently called upon to work with law firms and notary offices, to act as expert witnesses. On the training side of things, Monique gives regular conferences and training sessions to groups of notaries.

Empathy and experience

Services Gérontologiques Monique Renaud’s team of social workers have extensive experience in the field of gerontology, and each one is a member of Quebec’s Ordre professionnel des travailleurs sociaux et thérapeutes conjugaux et familiaux du Québec, the province’s professional order of social workers and marriage and family therapists. They are equipped to work with both seniors and their families, providing either evaluation or support services.

If required, they call on the services of specialists such as occupational therapists or physiotherapists to properly understand the needs of their clientele.
