The Ottawa Rotary Home envisions a community that embraces the value of respite and residential services for individuals and families as part of a complete support network that promotes optimum health and well-being.

The Ottawa Rotary Home exists to improve the quality of life of caregivers and individuals with disabilities through a family and person-centered approach that is responsive to individual needs and offered in a dynamic and flexible way.

Governing Values

Our values are all of equal importance and represent a belief system that strives for the respect in each of the following areas:


The family unit is supported in knowing they are never alone in meeting the extra demands of caring for a child or adult with a disability.

Community Awareness

We strive to increase community awareness and understanding of the value of respite services and specialized residential care to each individual that we encounter.


The Quality of life, service and living with respect and dignity.


The trust we develop with our families and individuals is integral to our organization. Our services are provided in a manner that is tailored to their strengths, needs and experiences.


We encourage and foster the belief that each individual has the potential to grow and develop into his/her own unique person.


The unique needs of the family and individuals are the focus of planning and delivery of all supports and services.


We ensure that our environments are accessible to all individuals, given their abilities.

Passion & Compassion
