The Asclepiade convalescent home celebrates its 15th anniversary!

Asclepiade convalescent home

GrS Montreal is the only center specializing in gender affirmation surgeries in the world to have its own convalescent home.


The Asclepiade convalescent home is 15 years old! The Asclepiade (french word for milkeweed) convalescent home, founded in 2007, offers care and accommodation to our trans clientele who have had genital gender affirmation surgery. Why did we choose this name? Because milkweed is the only plant that welcomes the monarch caterpillar to allow it to turn into a beautiful butterfly. It is an inspiring metaphor for what the convalescent home means to our patients. We have also set up a garden there that has obtained the certification Oasis for monarchs in order to offer butterflies, and the people who enjoy the garden, a rejuvenating and peaceful place.
