Doug Brousseau, Foundation Chair presented a certificate of appreciation to Commodore Sean Cantelon for Support Our Troops’ philanthropic leadership.
The Perley and Rideau Veterans’ Health Centre is one of Ontario’s largest and most progressive long-term care homes. It is also an innovative Seniors Village with 139 independent-living apartments and a 12-bed Guest House providing respite care. Veterans enjoy priority access to 250 of the Health Centre’s 450 long-term care beds and to the Seniors Village apartments.
The Perley Rideau serves as a hub for all seniors and particularly benefits those who are isolated or socially frail. Residents of both the Health Centre and the apartments enjoy ready access to a full range of clinical and therapeutic services, along with social and recreational activities and programs.
The Perley Rideau will continue to evolve as the population of Veterans declines and the number of seniors increases. It will leverage its many assets, including staff expertise, to increase its value to Veterans, to the healthcare system and to the community.
The mission of the 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.
