This is how you help us make St. Pat’s a Home- and ensure our ability to deliver meaningful programs and first-rate, compassionate care.
Every day at St. Patrick’s Home, the staff and volunteers work together to cultivate a warm, welcoming and caring environment – a home- where the social, spiritual and medical needs of residents are considered and reflected in their care. Our philosophy is to focus on residents’ abilities so we can help them live as fully and independently as their personal situation allows.
Contributions to St. Patrick’s Home Foundation play a crucial role in realizing this model of care. Throughout 2019, donations will be directed to the priority programs and needs listed below:
Spiritual and Palliative Care
Spiritual care is an essential Part of our health and well-being. St. Pat’s provides regular opportunities for worship, prayer and reflection, and facilitates the rites and celebrations important to each resident. We also personalize palliative care support; and provide counselling to residents, loved ones, and staff.
Social & Community Engagement Program
Maintaining connection to the community-at-large and cultivating relationships with others are key aspects of healthy living. Thus, the calendar at St. Pat’s is filled with meaningful activities and adventures such as holiday celebrations, daytime trips to see the fall leaves or a theatre production, outings to watch the Sens play, enjoy High Tea, or perhaps fish on the Ottawa River.
Music & Memory™, Music Circles, Musical performances
Ongoing education and training are one of the most important things we do to equip staff with the information, tools, and practical experience they need to effectively support residents. The Home has identified DementiAbility™ training and certification as an urgent priority for 2018 and 2019.
Ensuring the safety of residents is always top of mind at St. Pat’s. The purchase and installation of ceiling lifts in residents’ rooms over the next couple of years will increase the comfort of individuals that require support to move from bed to wheelchair.
