Enhancing the quality of life

of our residents

Donald Berman Jewish Eldercare Foundation enhances resident’s quality of life through fundraising initiatives that improve the Centre’s services and facilities.

We believe that every resident should benefit from innovative geriatric care and live a life of dignity and well-being at the Centre.

Donald Berman Jewish Eldercare Centre is home to 288 residents who are either living with some form of dementia or with primarily aging-related disabilities. The Centre is comprised of two buildings: the Jewish Hospital of Hope Pavilion, with its main entrance located at 5725 Victoria Avenue, and the David and Sylvia Kastner Pavilion, located at 5750 Lavoie Street. The two pavilions are connected by an aboveground, fully enclosed link that can be accessed from the second floor of the Hope Pavilion, or from the main floor of the Kastner Pavilion.The long-term care facility, which is affiliated with McGill University, is located in Cote Des-Neiges, Quebec, and is part of the Integrated Health and Social Services University Network (CIUSSS) for West-Central Montreal.

Our history
