Message from the President
It is good to know that there is a place in Gatineau where you can live your last days with your loved ones while benefiting from a professional accompaniment where compassion, dignity and respect are present.
The Mathieu-Froment-Savoie Foundation was set up to ensure the financial sustainability of La maison Mathieu-Froment-Savoie thanks to medium- and long-term financial commitments from philanthropists in the Outaouais region. The Foundation is also a vehicle for raising awareness and the importance of supporting those who care to accompany people at the end of their lives in love and dignity.
