About Us

  

You Can Change the Lives of Residents at CapitalCare

CapitalCare Foundation was incorporated in 1989 to support the goals and needs of CapitalCare through private philanthropy and giving of donors, community leaders, volunteers and friends.  All projects the Foundation supports represent the needs of residents living at CapitalCare. Read the Foundation's 2016 Community Report.

Did you know, people like you have deeply affected the lives of residents at CapitalCare by providing financial support? From tables and chairs to renovated dining rooms to specialized beds and lifts, when you make a donation to CapitalCare Foundation you are changing lives. Forever.

CapitalCare is where residents LIVE.  The Foundation strives to create an environment that helps residents to be comfortable by providing comforts of home. CapitalCare Foundation is a registered charity that raises needed funds to purchase equipment, renovate facilities, provide educational assistance for staff, and add to the quality of life of residents. We take over where government funding ends.

Funds raised support the following:

  • Recreation activities within centre and outings for residents
  • Specialized equipment
  • Homelike furnishings
  • Education for staff
  • Pastoral Care
  • Music Therapy
  • Facility enhancements/projects

We invite individuals, families, the business community, other charitable and not for profit organizations to join with us in enriching the lives of residents and families. Contributing is easy with many options to suit each individual.
