StayWell is aiming to help solve the relocation cost gap in the Canadian public health care system. Through the support of our donors and by leveraging furnished rental inventory in the corporate housing community through the Corporate Housing Providers Association (CHPA), we provide partially or fully subsidized housing to patients who must relocate to Toronto.
The medical procedure may be covered by OHIP, but the accommodations and living expenses make travelling to and staying in that city simply out of reach. Do you sell your home, quit your job, and hope your money lasts you through treatment and recovery?
The team at StayWell, with the help from our donors, provides reduced-cost housing in clean, comfortable, and safe areas close to patients' designated hospitals.
We believe that all Canadians deserve access to equitable health care, including financial support for all related costs. Thousands of patients cannot afford to relocate to major hospital centers to qualify for treatment or receive care. Our mission is to remove a major financial barrier to life-saving treatments by providing patients with reduced-cost housing close to their designated hospitals. Choosing life should be easy.
Families are often required to uproot their lives and relocate close to hospitals that offer life-saving treatments, typically in large city centers where the cost of living and accommodation are considerably higher.
Although the treatment may be covered by provincial health insurance plans, the relocation expenses alone are still unaffordable for many families. Thousands of Canadians have had to weigh the decision of receiving medical treatment, with the untenable financial burdens of relocating.
With support from our sponsors, donors, the Corporate Housing Providers Association (CHPA) community, and participating hospital programs, we aim to provide patients with comfortable, subsidized housing in safe areas close to their designated hospital. By relieving this financial burden, we will be helping more Canadians access the medical care they need.
StayWell aims to provide a simple solution to a complex problem faced by Canadians requiring specialized medical treatment.
