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.

- Caroline Portelance, Coordinator, events and planned giving

Caroline s’est jointe à la Fondation au mois d’août 2018, ce qui a mis un terme à plusieurs années de travail autonome en rédaction publicitaire professionnelle et en traduction avec son entreprise Mot à Mots. Sa vaste expérience en communication, en marketing et en événementiel a été cumulée dans l’industrie de la publicité et du sport. Toutefois, le point commun de cette carrière variée et enrichissante est son amour pour les gens. À travers les mots, les stratégies publicitaires ou les événements, l’objectif a toujours été de faire ressortir le meilleur des gens ou des entreprises.   Plus que jamais, c’est l’humain qui est au cœur de son travail. « C’est un privilège de savoir que chaque instant de mes journées au travail est dédié à faire la différence dans la vie des familles des patients et dans les derniers instants de ceux-ci. »
