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.

It’s that time of year again when people start counting down the days to Christmas. On the radio, the six o’clock news, and in friendly chatter, we hear things like, “There’s just 28 days ‘til Christmas!” A sense of urgency and anticipation is created as people plan and prepare for the holidays.

At St. Patrick’s Home, we feel it too. There’s always excitement as Christmas approaches and we begin to infuse St. Pat’s with the spirit of the holiday season.

If you could see the residents’ calendar you might be pleased by the array of activities that will take place over the next weeks, such as tree lighting and decorating; performances by local choirs and musicians; crafting and baking, and a full schedule of spiritual celebrations.

There are so many ways to involve residents in meaningful activities that spark joy, evoke happy memories of family tradition and special celebrations, or that quite simply, feel like Christmas.

As a supporter, you play an important role in making this possible because your donations provide St. Patrick’s Home with the resources it needs to deliver a higher quality of care and programming. Thank you for your interest in, and support of St. Patrick’s Home.

You can read about the collective impact of community donations on the health and well-being of residents by reading the Foundation’s 2021 Impact Report.

For me, it’s incredible that the spiritual care team averaged > 1,000 pastoral visits per month over the last year. And that’s just one of the many programs they offer.

This is community dollars in action — making a difference!

If you haven’t yet done so, please take a moment today to send a year-end donation to St. Patrick’s Home of Ottawa Foundation. Your gift will help us fulfill our financial commitment to St. Pat’s for this fiscal year, and to kick-off the New Year prepared to support essential programs and priority projects, like the development of a new family garden in our backyard.

We’re always humbled by the outpouring of love and generosity that is bestowed upon our Home and the residents, especially at Christmastime.

We are thankful for the care, loyalty and open heart that you and others have for St. Pat’s. Your support matters here, and it is appreciated.

So, here’s to doing more good together, for the residents, their loved ones and the staff.

Best wishes to you for a Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy New Year.

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.
