Lights of Hope

The Lights of Hope campaign was first held in the Christmas season of 1989 and was the initiative of one of our local corporate sponsors, FARM BOY, and the Paediatric Group of the Auxiliary to the Hotel Dieu Hospital. All funds raised from 1989 to 1998 benefited the sick children of our community.

With the introduction of restructuring and the current direction of health care in our community, the Paediatric Group of the Auxiliary terminated their sponsorship in 1998; and the RHSJ Health Centre of Cornwall Fund continued this tradition.

Our Foundation is pleased to dedicate all the funds raised by this campaign to St. Joseph’s Continuing Care Centre.

The Foundation is committed to meet the increasingly-complex medical and life support needs of our residents and to provide a comfortable environment for all. We are encouraged by individuals, local businesses and industries who continue to support this fundraiser. Every dollar raised helps us to build on the rich heritage founded by the Religious Hospitallers of St. Joseph more than 115 years ago.

Specialized Equipment includes:

  • Pressure-relieving mattresses,
  • Electronic vital signs monitors,
  • Bariatric lifts for helping to move residents and patients from wheelchairs, to and from beds, etc.,
  • Hospital beds,
  • Comfort items such as special pillows.

The success of the LIGHTS OF HOPE Campaign depends entirely on community support. Your donation will bring light to the life of our residents and patients, and provide for their special needs, comfort and programs.

Donations to the LIGHTS OF HOPE Campaign can be made at:

  • St. Joseph’s Continuing Care Centre Business Office
