Who Are We?
The cooperative of Solidarity of Respite and Mutual Aid (SORE) for caregivers of the Pays-d'en-Haut. Established in 2006, is the amalgamation of caregivers set up by the CLSC des Pays-d'en-Haut in 1999.
Given the scale of the needs, the group decided to get more involved in the community due to the urgency in finding permanent solutions to counter the exhaustion of caregivers.
Therefore the COOP; in consultation with community partners, is developing projects that contribute to improving the quality of life of caregivers and to provide to its members.
What is a Caregiver?
This is a person who provides emotional support, care, and services to compensate for the disabilities of a close relative or friend who has a loss of autonomy due to health problems. It is a non professional title, and as such it is unpaid. However this support is often at the expense of the caregiver's own health, as there is little possibility of respite for them.
After the respite and psychosocial support, recognition is the 3rd claim near Quebec caregivers. To achieve this recognition, the support group of the MRC Pays-d'en-Haut reflected on a significant symbol that would represent the reality of caregivers. The great generosity of a caregiver. Subsequently, the co-op has contacted a graphic artist who stylized the final version.
Caregivers are people of heart, and through their love and support they allow others to live longer.

The cooperative wants to contribute to improving the living conditions of caregivers of the MRC des Pays-d'en-Haut, who care for a spouse or a parent, regardless of the type of disease they suffer. For this we offer social and educational activities, peer support and respite to break their isolation. We want to help them create a new environment despite the illness of their loved one and reduce their exhaustion. We also offer a venue where people can learn and be heard. The cooperative of the “Solidarité, de Répit et d'Entraide” Pays-d'en-Haut (Coop SORE) also promotes the cause of assistance with health services, public authorities, as well as the population in general to raise awareness of their reality.
