About OutCare Foundation
The OutCare Foundation is a registered charity that supports palliative care across Eastern Ontario. Our goal is for individuals and their families to have access to the care and support they need for their end of life journey. We work towards this by identifying gaps in palliative care, focusing primarily on in-home care, and raising the funds needed to help address them. From equipment to education, knowledge sharing projects to launching new programs, we work closely with generous donors to support those facing end-of-life.
