YOUR GENEROSITY IMPACTS LIVES

By donating to the Eldercare Foundation of Ottawa, you play a vital role in helping us accomplish our mission – to enhance the quality of life of seniors living in long-term care.

Among the many things that our grants make possible are programming that encourages social engagement and physical activity, and equipment that helps make the day-the-day routine easier and more pleasant for residents and staff in Ottawa’s long-term care homes.

Some examples of what our donors’ support have made possible include:

  • Garden improvements
  • Benches
  • Hi-lo beds
  • Classical music programming
  • Indoor exercise bike that allows seniors with dementia to visit childhood memories through video
  • Interactive companion pets that mimic the sounds and movement of cats and dogs
