Andy’s House opened in October 2020 to provide palliative care in a home-like setting for residents & families of South-West Muskoka. The dream took hold in 2012 with a generous land donation from local philanthropist Brock Napier and a partnership with the Andy Potts Memorial Foundation, who raised the build funds. Our “home” currently offers 8 palliative care rooms and a paediatric palliative care room.
Andy’s House provides specialized clinical staff 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Andy’s House is available to all residents of Muskoka Lakes, Bracebridge, Gravenhurst, and Georgian Bay Townships, including Wahta First Nation and Moose Deer Point First Nation and, by extension their families.
We work in partnership with local health care organizations to make transitions through the healthcare system seamless.
