'Hein House' the residential wing of the Ruddy-Shenkman Hospice
Opening September 26, 2017!
Providing a live-in space for hospice patients in the west end of Ottawa is the dream behind Hein House, the residential wing of the Ruddy-Shenkman Hospice in Kanata.
In June 2013 Hospice Care Ottawa purchased 110 McCurdy Drive, a 3.6 acre property located in Central Kanata. Thanks to the support of the Hospice Ottawa West (HOW) fundraising campaign led by the Bruyère Foundation, we raised over 6 million dollars which went towards the purchase and the renovation of what was the Trinity Presbyterian Church on the property. In 2014 we opened our doors of our newly named Ruddy-Shenkman Hospice and began offering community hospice programs, such as day hospice, grief and bereavement groups, caregiver support and volunteer training. In 2016 we started construction on 'Hein House', the residential wing of the Ruddy-Shenkman Hospice. Construction is on track and will open September 26, 2017!
12 beautiful suites with views to the garden
The 12,592-square-foot addition offers 10 hospice rooms and two short-term respite rooms providing 24-hour quality hospice care. Each suite provides a bathroom and outdoor access to beautiful gardens. Loved ones will also have a space to stay overnight and many beautiful quiet places to rest and refresh.
We still need your help. Our dream of Hein House would not be possible without generous donors and supporters. Many pledges made in our capital campaign will come in over the next few years so we have a mortgage. We need additional cash on hand to cover the costs of construction. Please help us continue serving our community by making a donation to Hospice Care Ottawa today.
