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.

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.

Every Donation Matters

Every day, the staff and volunteers at St. Pat’s work together to cultivate a caring environment, where the needs of each resident is considered and reflected in their care

Our goal is to understand each person’s unique history, interests and health status, then provide appropriate support so they can live as fully and independently as possible. Contributions to St. Patrick’s Home Foundation play a crucial role in making this possible.

Capital Improvement

Capital improvement projects preserve our new Home – and create a warm, comfortable, homelike atmosphere

Over the spring and summer of 2019, with support from our donors, St. Pat’s undertook the enhancement of flower beds and the installation of new sod in The Larry Kelly Family Garden, and a mini renovation on Donegal, a secure unit for residents with advanced dementia. The transformations have been incredible – true gifts to our residents, and the St. Pat’s community.

Have you ever seen the monthly calendar of events at St. Patrick’s Home? If you have, then you are well aware of the scope and variety of programs and celebrations that take place in the Home and out in the community. The staff work together with volunteers, and with feedback from residents and their families to plan and provide an array of meaningful events that enhance the quality of resident and Home life.

You, as a supporter of St. Pat’s, play an important role in making this possible, because each year community donations are used to enrich music therapy, musical programming and entertainment, social and community engagement activities, as well as spiritual, religious and palliative care.

On behalf of the staff and Board of Directors, I want to thank you for choosing to support St. Patrick’s Home of Ottawa. Thank you for helping to make St. Pat’s the warm, welcoming and spirited Home that it is. We are truly moved by the care, generosity and loyalty of people like you, and we feel privileged to be a part of your journey.
