The Perley Rideau Story

The Perley Rideau Story

We have embraced video to share our story. Rather than publish an annual print report, we will post quarterly video updates and broadcast through our website and social media channels. A print summary will also be available including additional information that did not make it in the video.

Once a year, a summary of our audited financial statements will be included in the print document.

Here’s our library of recent videos and print reports:

Welcome to our Fall 2020 News Update

"The COVID-19 pandemic continues to threaten the health and safety of residents, staff and their families. Minimizing this threat while maximizing resident quality of life remains our top priority. Our success to date results directly from the professionalism, hard work and dedication of our staff. Check our website for the latest information.

"The pandemic has affected everyone in different ways. Some have lost loved ones, , while others have been forced into bankruptcy. During these difficult times, I find it helpful to keep things in perspective. For inspiration, I encourage you to consider the many of our residents who persevered through years of war and hardship. Like them,  we must continue to support one another."

Akos Hoffer, CEO

The 122nd Annual Meeting of The Perley and Rideau Veteran’s Health Centre Corporation was held on Thursday, June 4, 2020. Residents, tenants, families and friends, staff and volunteers were cordially invited to attend via video conference.

The theme of the meeting was gratitude, both for the dedication of staff and for the support from the community. In his remarks, Board Chair Kris Birchard emphasized that Perley Rideau’s success results from a team effort. He also described the work underway to update Perley Rideau’s brand so that it better reflects the organization’s ongoing evolution.

Members of the Board recorded and posted video tributes to staff. Along with expressing appreciation for all staff, members singled out individuals who went above and beyond the call of duty during the pandemic.

Watch a feature video on our outstanding Therapeutic Recreation and Creative Arts Program

The Therapeutic Recreation and Creative Arts Program is funded by Veterans Affairs Canada and The Perley Rideau Foundation. The Program improves quality of life for residents and generates valuable lessons that Perley Rideau staff share with their professional peers at other homes.  

This video profiles Ross Imrie who serves as Studio Lead, and features Connie Sandilands, a nurse and Veteran of the Second World War.  During the years Connie lived at Perley Rideau, she participated actively in the Program. 

We are proud to dedicate this video to Connie's memory and to her service to Canada.
