An update on our "Forever Home"

It has been said “A house is made of walls and beams...a home is made of love and dreams.” As the Executive Director of Beth Donovan Hospice, I am excited to provide an update on a long-awaited dream coming to fruition in our community.

We have adopted a phased in approach for occupancy at our ‘Forever Home’, at 1107 French Settlement Road in Kemptville, as follows:

Phase One ~ The architect’s drawings are complete, which now has Hospice in compliance with the municipality’s code requirements. After a competitive selection process, Kevin Scott of CooperWood General Contracting Inc. has been selected as our general contractor. He and his team are now beginning the renovations that will allow staff to move to the property in January.

Phase Two ~ This phase will be concluded in the spring, and that will see the accessibility renovations complete that will allow our Day Hospice program to also be at our French Settlement Road location. This will bring all our services under one roof, which will help increase clients’ access to our programs.

Phase Three ~ We will continue working with the Champlain LHIN, the provincial funding body, and continue to lobby them for approval for residential beds and the dollars to operate them.  The construction of a new wing that will accommodate residential beds will be the third phase of the developments at our Forever Home.
