CDS Boutique’s (Concept du Sablier) exciting adventure began in 1992, when Marie-France Dozois decided to combine her creative spirit, her taste for entrepreneurship and her motivation to improve the quality of life of the elders living in nursing homes. Over the years, Marie-France has developed her skills and knowledge thanks to her field experience and to the various training courses she has taken in Canada, Europe and the United States. She has succeeded in establishing her place in this niche market by developing various partnerships, especially with institutions caring for autonomous elders as well as elders with loss of autonomy. She has also focused on helping people with Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia. Noting the lack of adapted games available for these particular clientele, Marie-France has created exclusive products in order to meet their needs. In addition to our products for therapeutic and physical activity, we offer products for reminiscence, fine motor skills, memory, mobility, aids for daily living, active life, indoor adapted signage, adapted leisure, sensory stimulation, music, arts and crafts and many more! CDS rapidly became one of the main senior therapeutic activity resource providers in Canada.
Being open to comments and requests, we have always been able to remain up-to-date by offering innovative and different products, but also by adding products aimed at a new clientele: autonomous youth with special needs (hyperactivity, ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, intellectual disabilities, language difficulties, etc.), their parents and the professionals who take care of them. We also offer a wide range of educational toys and games for all children! We are proud to provide children with products that will help them take a step further in their quest for autonomy.
Over time, we have come to serve different clientele. Children and teenagers, for whom we offer educational games and toys; families, thanks to our many intergenerational games and products; caregivers who look after a parent or a friend, and all the professionals in nursing homes and senior care centers, those working in kindergartens, schools and special education needs, rehabilitation centers, psychologists and occupational therapists, with whom we have forged partnerships over the last 25 years!
At CDS Boutique, we are committed to offering our customers a wide range of products to stimulate and help them on a daily basis, according to their desires and expectations.
"Providing a better quality of life" is our slogan! This phrase is extremely meaningful to us, especially when we are looking for products that are suitable for our various clientele with or without special needs, as well as for caregivers and professionals.
We offer more than 3000 high-quality products in different categories, for both young and old alike.
