The Donald Berman Maimonides Geriatric Centre Foundation significantly contributes to the health and well-being of the aging population in Québec

by funding improvements in the Centre’s services and facilities, and advancing research in geriatric care. We believe that every resident should benefit from innovative geriatric care and live a life of dignity and well-being.

Donald Berman Maimonides Geriatric Centre is home to 387 residents, living with late-stage dementia and/or other illnesses which are primarily aging-related. The long-term care facility, 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. The staff and volunteers provide care to make sure that residents feel heard, feel safe, and feel cared for. Families also play a crucial role in our residents’ well-being.
