The Donald Berman Maimonides Geriatric Centre Foundation enhances the quality of life of the Centre’s residents through fundraising initiatives that allow for the improvement in 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.

The Donald Berman Maimonides Geriatric Centre is home to 387 residents who are either living with some form of dementia or with primarily aging-related disabilities. The long-term care facility, which is affiliated with McGill University, is located in Cote St. Luc, Quebec, and is part of the Integrated Health and Social Services University Network (CIUSSS) for West-Central Montreal.

These additions to the regular long-term care programming are what makes DBM a Centre of Excellence. Your generosity has so much impact.
