Our owners, Dr. Pierre Beaulieu and entrepreneur Sean Doucet, are undeniably a great pair as they combine their knowledge, skills, and experience together while managing The Briarlea.
Dr. Pierre Beaulieu provides an un-equivalent medical knowledge and experience to our home, as he is able to schedule weekly visits with our residents, as well as better understand, diagnose, and care for their needs. Dr. Pierre Beaulieu has been practicing medicine for over 10 years, from on-call services at the Moncton City Hospital, to various walk-in clinics in the Greater Moncton Area, to assisting surgeons in the Operating Room. In addition to supervising the overall health of our residents, Dr. Beaulieu also operates his own bilingual practice and is currently the Family Physician to over 1500 patients. Dr. Beaulieu brings superior care to our residents as he is continuously updating and maintaining his medical skills, which includes the needs of clients with Alzheimer’s disease and Dementia.
Mr. Sean Doucet’s business education (BBA from St. F.X. University) and strong financial background has allowed him to successfully manage other businesses in the Greater Moncton Area. Mr. Doucet provides sound operational management to both the staff and the company as a whole on a daily basis. He handles all accounting/financial activities, escalated employee related matters, participates at all employee meetings, reviews, and also handles any renovation & maintenance projects, as well as all internal and/or external business communications for the company.
Annie St. Coeur, our bilingual Registered Nurse, has worked many years in geriatrics and palliative care units. Annie adds significant value to our team with many years of experience in both Medical Geriatrics and Palliative units. Her wide-ranging certifications and courses help ensure the best possible care for our residents. She has regularly cared for clients with Alzheimer’s disease and Dementia and has been a valuable resource in the training of our team.
The Briarlea Team
A highly qualified and efficient team of people also provide day-to-day care to our residents. Our Team Leaders and many of our staff have successfully completed the Nursing Assistant Program, the Long Term Care in Residential Facility Care Worker Course, or the Home Support Worker Program.
All staff have completed the CPR/First Aid training, and all Briarlea staff who provide direct care to our residents receive a collection of trainings on how to care for Alzheimer’s and Dementia patients, which is in addition to the Brigg’s Health Care Operation Guideline training and the Standards and Procedures for Adult Residential Facilities provided by the Department of Social Department.
We are continuously seeking new training tools and materials, as well as new techniques which allows us to expand our knowledge and understanding of our residents’ growing needs. In addition to our resource center which provides pamphlets, videos and DVDs, our resident’s detailed Individual Care Plans, and other written materials on resident care, we also do in-house trainings were we bring in trained individuals to speak to the staff, on Dementia for example, which all ensures we provide your loved ones with the best possible care.
