FINDING THE RIGHT FINANCIAL AID FOR YOUR SITUATION
Our goal at Bien Chez Soi is to make home and health care services available and accessible to anyone who expresses the need for such services. Since every person has his or her needs and requires specific resources to meet those needs, there are many programs available to support you financially.
Our childcare and home and health care services may qualify you for a tax credit. You should take advantage of this.
For people aged 70 and over, staying at home is now an easier option, as Revenu Québec offers a monthly or annual reimbursement of expenses related to home services; this reimbursement will increase by up to 40% over the next five years. Whether you need specialized care, help with domestic chores or cleaning services, all these services are eligible for tax credits from Revenu Québec.
Fees paid for childcare services may qualify for a refundable tax credit, the amount of which is based on family income. Advance payments are possible under certain conditions. This tax credit can range from 26% to 75% of eligible childcare expenses.
The service voucher program provides a certain number of hours of home care services to a person with a loss of autonomy, whether it is for housework, meal preparation or personal assistance.
Under this program, you are responsible for hiring the person who will provide the services and you are also responsible for monitoring the hours worked. Does this process stress you out? Don’t have the time or energy? Bien Chez Soi helps you through this process. Selecting candidates, verifying information (experience, certification, criminal record, etc.), replacing the Caregiver during his/her vacation…
Enjoy peace of mind – we take care of everything.
Social workers, occupational therapists, CLSCs and hospitals all agree that they can recommend Bien Chez Soi with confidence because they know that our rigorous recruitment and selection process ensures that we hire exemplary employees. In fact, we can say that the services of Bien Chez Soi are an excellent complement to the services provided by CLSCs, hospitals and seniors’ residences.
The CLSCs have budgets to help Quebec families who are no longer autonomous. An occupational therapist or social worker from the CLSC will assess your needs and assign you a number of hours of home care services that could be provided by a private company such as Bien Chez Soi. This financial assistance is determined and granted by the CLSC.
