St. Patrick’s Home of Ottawa abides by a vision to provide residents with the highest quality of care,
within a welcoming home, where everyone feels supported and cared for.
The Foundation is honoured to work alongside the Home, and with the community, to support this vision.
COVID-19 Emerging Needs
It’s takes teamwork, compassion, creativity and dedication to keep residents safe, connected and well cared for during the COVID-19 crisis.
St. Pat’s is wholly dedicated to the task at hand, yet as the pandemic continues, community donations will play a vital role in providing staff with the resources needed to provide the highest quality of care, to reduce social isolation and connect residents with loved ones, and to support staff through this difficult time.
What we Fund
Your donation supports the delivery of first-rate, compassionate care, enriches programming and contributes to the warmth and vibrancy of our Home
St. Patrick’s Home is blessed with a family of supporters who are devoted to the health and wellbeing of the 288 residents that reside here. They give to St. Pat’s because they’ve seen first-hand how their donations enhance residents’ lives and contribute to the spirit of our Home.
Keeping the Spirit Alive newsletter
These days, when I arrive at St. Pat’s, I’m thrilled to see the pathways and benches filled with people. It makes me smile and feel so grateful that our residents can once again enjoy the outdoors, the gardens and the fresh air with up to 10 family members and friends.
The moral and financial support provided by you and the St. Pat’s community helped our Home reach this milestone, and as the pandemic continues, to keep the residents safe and engaged with each other and their loved ones.
I invite you to read the Spring 2021 issue of Keeping the Spirit Alive which celebrates the people that carried St. Pat’s through the last 14 months, and summarizes the disbursements made by the Foundation to the Home for essential programs and priority needs.
Thank you for keeping our residents, staff and families close to your heart.
Executive Director, St. Patrick’s Home of Ottawa Foundation

A Year in Review
Last March, the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a global pandemic. Shortly after, the doors to St. Pat’s closed to all visitors and volunteers. In this video, you will take a peak behind our doors to see the spirit and fight that kept us going over the last 12 months.
Community & Social Engagement
Throughout 2019, community donations have allowed us to cover the cost of transportation, tickets or admission fees, professional musician and entertainer’s fees, and so much more.
