SAILING TO FUND HOSPICE CARE

Located on the border between Regent Park and St. Jamestown in downtown Toronto, Perram House (www.perramhouse.ca) offers palliative care in a home setting to individuals who have a limited life expectancy. In the spirit of compassionate care, clients are supported by a dedicated nursing staff, five physicians, personal support with the assistance of trained volunteers, placing the client in control of his or her life and care.

All donations will go a long way to making a difference in the life of a patient at Perram House. Corporations are jumping on board in a big way. More corporate sponsors are welcome and committee organizers are looking for items for their silent auction.
