Patients Residents & Families

Connecting with your loved ones

We've got your backs. 


Bruyère Therapeutic Support Services has enhanced existing services and developed new services to help ensure our patients and residents continue to be engaged, social, and connected with their loved ones to help reduce feelings of loneliness and isolation during these unprecedented times.


Connecting with your loved ones at Bruyère

To help keep you connected with your loved ones at Bruyère, we are here to facilitate phone and video chats (FaceTime/Skype/Zoom) 7 days a week. You can submit your request by email at volunteer@bruyere.org or by telephone at 613-562-6364. Patients and residents in our care can also request this service by speaking with a volunteer of staff member at Bruyère.

If you need access to devices or technical support at home to keep in touch, our partners at Connected Canadians are here to help. To access this service, please complete and submit this form.

Virtual connections available during a stay at Bruyère

In addition to these services, our teams have developed virtual activities for patients and residents to enjoy. These include virtual trivia games, a music and memory program, concerts, and sight-seeing.

Spiritual care services

Patients, residents, volunteers, and staff who may be showing signs of spiritual distress can also request supportive phone calls by pastoral care volunteers, virtual or phone check-ins with our Chaplains by email at spiritualcare@bruyere.org or by telephone at 613-562-6364

Onsite daily activities

When possible, our teams are conducting daily activities each day inpatient and resident room across our campuses, such as friendly visits, playing cards or board games, watching movies, meal assistance, and distributing activity kits.

If you have any questions about any of these services or have other ideas you’d like to share with us, we’d love to hear from you! Email us at volunteer@bruyere.org or call us at 613-562-6364.
