We welcome people at the end of life and their loved ones to accompany them in their final moments; the care team is made up of qualified nurses, nursing assistants and orderlies; and volunteers who wish to be part of the care team are trained by La maison.

The Mathieu-Froment-Savoie Foundation was created to ensure the financial sustainability of La maison Mathieu-Froment-Savoie through medium- and long-term financial commitments from philanthropists in the Outaouais region. The Foundation is also a vehicle for raising awareness of the importance of supporting those who are committed to accompanying people at the end of life with love and dignity.
La maison Mathieu-Froment-Savoie offers three types of services: accommodation during the last weeks of life, control and relief of pain and other symptoms, and temporary accommodation for respite or help at the end of life.
We regularly organize fundraising events in the community in order to continue our mission of enabling the people at the end of life to live as serenely as possible the last moments in respect, dignity and compassion at La maison Mathieu-Froment-Savoie
