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.

While communities across Canada navigate the fourth wave of the pandemic, St. Patrick’s Home of Ottawa continues to take small but significant steps toward providing residents with a more normal way of life. And though we continue to follow strict COVID-19 safety measures, we have gradually restored vital activities of daily living — like attending mass in The Gathering Place, sharing meals in the dining room, visiting with extended family and friends, enjoying an outdoor barbecue, or taking in a live performance in the family garden.

And now that 200+ residents have received a third dose of the Pfizer vaccine (the remainder will be eligible five months after their second dose), and cherished volunteers have returned to service, we have reason to hope that 2022 will make many more milestones, that support quality care and resident engagement, possible.

In the Fall 2021 issue the Keeping the Spirit Alive newsletter we shift our focus to the future and introduce the possible construction of a new facility that would provide affordable, supportive housing for seniors; the landscaping of the under-utilized green space behind St. Patrick’s Home; and our renewed commitment to person-centred care and training. Please take some time to learn about these initiatives by clicking here, and contact the Foundation if you’d like more information.

Thank you for your interest in, and support of St. Patrick’s Home.

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.
