3 assisted living residences forced to close
The Complexe St. Francois in Sherbrooke will be forced to close in July. It's the third residence to be shut down in Sherbrooke this spring because it doesn't meet building code and safety standards. Just last week, we brought you the story of Les Résidence de La Cathédrale, a home for elderly and mentally disabled people who are also being forced to find new accomodations within the next two months. Before that, the Maison Marquette closed its doors for similar reasons.
All of the homes in question had the same owner - they are now all in receivership. Philippe Jordan is a partner at PriceWaterhouse Coopers. He is acting receiver for the residences being shut down in Sherbrooke, and told us about the situation. Listen here.
