Doug Brousseau, Foundation Chair presented a certificate of appreciation to Commodore Sean Cantelon for Support Our Troops’ philanthropic leadership.
The Perley Rideau is an historic and thriving Ottawa health centre that delivers top-quality care in a personalized and compassionate manner. Established in 1897, today it is home to 450 residents, including 250 Canadian Veterans, most of whom served in either the Second World War or the Korean War. The Government of Canada provides additional funding for the care of Veterans, but donations to the Perley Rideau Foundation improve their quality of life in direct and significant ways. Veterans Affairs Canada recently agreed to fund a unique unit for the next generation of Veterans at the Perley Rideau. The Perley Rideau continues to be at the forefront of seniors’ housing and care including assisted-living services, long-term, respite and convalescent care.
The mission of The Perley and Rideau Veterans’ Health Centre Foundation is to raise funds to help the Perley and Rideau Veterans’ Health Centre achieve its mission; excellence in the health, safety and well-being of seniors and veterans with a focus on innovation in person centered and frailty informed care and service.
