2022 Impact Report

Your Donations in Action, Making a Difference. 

Your donations support essential programs and special initiatives that enhance care and contribute to residents’ engagement in purposeful activities, feelings of wellness and belonging, and their families’ peace of mind. 

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.

Night at the Museum: Trivia Challenge

Friday, October 18th, 2024 at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum 

It’ll be a night to LAUGH, CONNECT, and have FUN while raising funds for programs that contribute to the health, well-being, and quality of life of our residents!

October 2023

As we approach our year-end fundraising campaign, I encourage you to read The 2022 Impact Report, published by the Foundation in July. The report demonstrates, in a tangible way, the collective impact of community donations on the quality of care at St. Patrick’s Home.

You’ll see how community donations provided the Spiritual and Pastoral Care team with the resources to make more than 2,700 pastoral visits – to check in, have a chat, listen, pray, or deliver the sacrament, the Anointing of the Sick. You can imagine how important these visits are to the residents, and how they contribute to the health, well-being and quality of life of the residents.

You’ll also see how your donations supported the delivery of Holy Mass six days/week, music therapy, social engagement activities, employee training in DementiAbility Methods, and so much more. This is how your dollars were put into action to make a difference!

We are grateful for the care, loyalty and open heart that you have for St. Pat’s, so please know that your support matters here, and it is appreciated.

Here’s to doing more good together in 2023 and 2024!

Thank you!

Meg Friedman
Executive Director, St. Patrick’s Home of Ottawa Foundation
