What is McDermott House Canada?
McDermott House Canada is a registered charity dedicated to helping those who have served our country. Our FIRST project is to create an innovative and warm, home-like environment for Canadian Veterans, Military, First Responders and community patients in the Palliative care Unit at Sunnybrook Veterans Centre in Toronto.
I am proud of the prestigious Board of Directors we have assembled to date, and the MHC team comprised of my partner, Co-founder and Vice-President, Trudy Eagan and Chair of the Board, Graeme Jewett.
In the fall of 2016, we were able to see the completion of Phase I of the project – the Garden Room, Lobby Area and Kitchens. These changes are as are result of the commitment of our community to this initiative.
Our partnership with Sunnybrook continues to be a rewarding one, as we work together to accomplish the transformation of the Palliative Care Unit in K1E Veterans Centre at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. Our mission is to promote the highest quality of life for Veterans, Military, First Responders and community patients facing the final stage of a terminal illness.
We continue to work diligently to raise the money required to accomplish our mission. Your continued help and support is greatly appreciated, and we look forward to sharing our progress with you.
Please feel free to share any ideas with us. We value your input. Together we will ensure McDermott House Canada sets the standard for premier end-of-life care in Canada.
